    October 3, 2016 by Britex Fabrics

    Since Halloween is just around the corner, here is some creative Halloween inspiration for you. Our customer Bobby Brumback from Willits California created these two fabulous Halloween costumes. He has been creating original costumes for theatrical productions and holidays for about 10 years. He created the "David Bowie" costume with an awesome psychedelic polyester print fabrics and then he added gold lame accents. For his "Soul Stealer" costume, he used 9 yards of muslin that he hand dyed and hand sewed the cording. He purchased cheap masks and molded them to the fabric and sewed them onto the robe.
