This year for Halloween I have donned many faces. My friend Nina and I were Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World. I was an zombie little girl for the Zombie Pub Crawl. But perhaps the best thing I did this Halloween was with my co-workers, Alan and Jordan. We went as Wreck It Ralph characters!
And if you haven’t seen it, you’re missing out. It’s a Disney film about, well, the life of arcade game characters! It stars Ralph, an arcade game bad guy who is notoriously disliked for destroying buildings, and his sweet, plucky counterpart, the good guy, Fix It Felix, who cleans up Ralph’s messes. Ralph really hates always being the bad guy, so he decides to leave his game in search of his new destiny as a hero. He ends up befriending a couple of other quirky arcade game characters, including my character Vanellope Von Schweets. Vanellope is a goofy and sugary sweet race car drive from the racing game, Sugar Rush. She’s got the personality mixture of a crazy little kid, and a bit of the sassy voice actress who plays her, Sarah Silverman.
This costume would not have been possible if it weren’t for the 2 amazing Etsy stores who helped me compile this costume. The candy hair clips, a signature style piece of Vanellope’s, came from Bunny’s Craft Hutch. She’s created an assortment of polymer clay sprinkles, candy dots, and peppermints! I just want to eat them all up! It was hard not to… The outfit is a marvel of the amazing Shindig Apparel. Hand sewn with care, the perfect color choices and the perfect fit! This Vanellope costume is a masterful piece, and comfortable to boot! What talent!!
In short, Vanellope Von Schweetz is one of my absolutel favorite cosplays. It’s adorable, comfortable, weather appropriate, and a total fantastic group costume! Thanks again to Terry of Bunny’s Craft Hutch and Tania of Shindig Apparel for some seriously clutch Vanellope costume pieces. Your talent shines like a thousand gumdrops in a sugary sea of syrup! Make sure to check out these talented ladies on Etsy!
Until next time readers, I hope your Halloween is full of fantastic costumes, lots of sugary sweets, and fun times with friends and fiends. <3
