I originally wrote this post over a year ago, and then for some reason just let it accumulate dust until now… I’ve shown you this bag on day 9 of the Me-Made-May challenge and promised I’ll finish the post about it soon, and so, here it is:
March was Purim, and I went with my husband to a costumes party. I looked for something geeky enough to fit the expected crowd, and came up with Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers from “Scott Pilgrim VS the World“. For Scott, I wanted to make the Smashing Pumpkins heart print shirt, which I thought was the most iconic, as I remembered it being in both the comic and the movie.
I also improvised wristbands from a pair of Idan’s old gym socks. Next, I bought two wigs, for the two of us, and then butchered them both to the shape I wanted.
Anyway, I made all sorts of shenanigans for this double costume, but the most important part, at least for myself, was the creation of the Ramona Flowers bag. I spent a few hours sewing the star-subspace-bag, in which I made a few creative decisions, so I could use materials I already had in my house, and most importantly create something I would actually want to use. So, yes, a byproduct of this holiday is my (now not so) new star bag, that I use ALL THE TIME.
I figured we probably won’t be the only Scott and Ramona couple, but I could not have imagined we would be one of 3 couples plus an extra Ramona, each with different outfit, hairstyle and accessories from different scenes of the movie! We couldn’t have planned it any better if we tried. I round everybody up for a group photo:
