I have to be honest: I love Halloween! I love dressing up in costume and pretending to be someone different! Unfortunately, this year I'm not doing anything to celebrate it. Then I got an idea from some dolly friends (meaning, fellow doll collectors/ooakers ): Halloween for my dolls! Since I couldn't dress up myself, and because it's cheaper to make costumes for my 1:6 scale friends, I decided last minute to do this! So less then a week ago I started putting together a few "costumes" for some of my favorite dolls. It was really fun and stretched me a bit because Barbie clothes are expensive! Well, expensive for me, lol. I ended up going through my limited doll clothes bin to see what I could come up with! But I couldn't just end it there. They need the right setting, so I decided to do my first diorama. It's extremely small and literally started gathering stuff for it two days ago, but overall, I'm pretty happy with my first attempt!
Onto the pictures!

Costumes in order of appearance:
*Mummy - He's wrapped in gauze I bought from the dollar store! Very easy to do!
*Genie- Princess Jasmine attire I had on hand
*Girl Bunny - The pink suit I bought in a lot with some other outfits. It originally had stockings I cut off and pink feathers I replaced with white fur. The tail is a cotton ball and the ears I made out of felt and pinned to her head.
*Love smitten Lord - The blue costume is a prince outfit I had on hand.
*Fleeing Maiden - This was the most involved costume I made.
The original dress was this:
I replaced the front panel, cut the skirt and added the underskirt, added sleeves, trim and lace. And I love it! She might have to wear this dress a little past Halloween. :)
*Witch - The purple top and black skirt I had in my stash. I made the hat out of felt.
The coffin and the cat came from Michaels. The cat was originally orange that I painted black.
The tombstones, pumpkins, skeleton, background and moss all came from the dollar store!
