What would be even more interesting is if you could dress up as her AFTER she lost her head 8)

There is a trick to doing that.

Have seen many homemade headless costumes but most were Marie Antionette.

Yes, one of our neighbors has a "headless" costume. Not sure how it works, but she appears to be holding her own head in her hands, while the bodice and neck of the dress extend well above her actual head. Perhaps because she is seated when she wears it (to give out candy), she doesn't appear disproportionately long.

The dress looks somewhat like a 19th-century wedding gown.

Oh, I think that's a great idea! Fairy tales are extremely popular right now, I think. There are a couple of TV shows based on fairy tales (Grimm on NBC, Once upon a Time on ABC), and there are some movies coming out, too, based on Snow White, I believe. The queen who pursues her is also her stepmother, right?

Well, the poll is finished and the votes overwelmly came in that I do make a good woman in costume.

With that in mind, then I shall continue the trend!

I will continue to do most of my costuming as female characters. Why knock success!

Getting use to wearing dresses and skirts. Also I am feeling more comfortable costuming as a woman than I did before.

Any character sugguestions?
