I have always had an affinity towards witches and I think that they are an iconic part of the Halloween culture which is why I chose this costume direction. My goal was to make a slightly more modern/gothic version of a traditional witch. My costume was actually quite comfortable and I had no complaints about wear-ability. I learned a lot about sewing through this process, especially in regards to clothing seams and measurements. If I were to do the project again, I would give myself a little more time for details and I would start working on the circuit earlier so that I could get it working in time. I would also make some changes to the physical appearance of the staff. I had a lot of trouble deciding what I wanted the staff to look like and how I would build it, so it ended up being a bit sloppy in execution. Overall I really enjoyed this project and liked how it turned out, but I would like to refinish it when I have the time.
