White Rabbit Halloween Costume

My son was invited to a Mad Hatter Halloween Party right after I made the two masks for his sister in college.  As soon as he told me about it I had an idea in my head based on the rabbit mask in the Cricut Animal Mask digital file.  I added a couple of extra props and this costume came together pretty quickly - design plus cut and assembly took me a morning.

Close up of the mask - the nose is covered in a couple of layers of Liquid Glass to give it shine and dimension.  The gray nose area is silver metallic cardstock to catch the light.  I cut an extra black backer and sandwiched the black grosgrain ribbon ties between the two pieces.

I used the Ace of Spades card from our CTMH Artiste cartridge and replaced the spades with a hearts.  I had the Explore draw the A on and filled in the outline with gold metallic marker.

I absolutely LOVE the way the oversized pocket watch came out!  I added a front piece and hinged it so it opens to see the inside of the watch.  The letters are drawn onto silver metallic cardstock by the Explore - Black then outlined in Copper.

The front of the watch is held in place by a small dot of velcro.  We threaded the watch ribbon/chain through the button hole of his suit jacket so he could pull it out to show the time.  Too fun!

He thought his costume was awesome when he saw it and it was a bit hit at the party too.  It makes me feel like a Mom Superhero when I knock it out the ball park for one of my kids!  Have I told you today how much I love my Cricut Explore???

Thanks for stopping by today!  Stay crafty my friends!
