Readers, today I want to introduce you to MPB Halloween Sew-Alonger, Christina J. (pictured above in an early fitting).
I decided on this costume very last minute. It was the 15th of October, and originally a friend and I had planned on being mermaids. I really just wanted an excuse to buy sparkly and sequined fabrics, but I've been on a self-imposed fabric ban (with good reason) so I left the idea. Last year I made a burger dress, and I figured I'd just recycle that costume and call it good. THEN, my friend sends me a photo she found on the internet of the most adorable gumball romper EVER. I said it was super cute, and went about my way. A few days later, another gumball outfit finds its way to me, and right then I decide on it. The idea is a complete knock-off of the romper, so I really can't take credit for that, but we could say this is my own interpretation!

I want to thank Christina for sharing her creativity with us and, Christina, please don't forget to brush your teeth after all those gumballs.
Have a great day, everybody — I'm off to prep for a hurricane! (What should I wear?)
