Creepy Other Mother Costume

Neil Gaiman created an interesting and spooky world with Coraline. The young girl Coraline encounters her Other Mother, a spindly creature with big hair and black buttons for eyes, there. Instructables user Tatterhood made the costume from scratch for Halloween. She gathered some reference images from the film and used Butterick pattern 6109 to make the top and skirt from black fabric. Since she couldn’t find a fabric close enough to the one seen in the movie, she added the white dots diamond pattern by hand with paint. She made a template with the right shape and covered the dress. As she says, it took a long time.

She also styled her own wig to look like the Other Mother’s. She started with the Royal Tiara Lace Front Wig in a shaggy style in black and cut it:

Unless it’s already styled as you like, cut your wig into a bob (the better option I find is to wear the wig and have a very awesome friend cut the bob on you!). Keep the excess hair. Make a small cone with craft foam and hot glue (simply by cutting out a circle, cut the radius and overlap the circle ends). I recommend painting the foam but you don’t have to. Cover the foam with the chopped hair from your wig (carefully do this with the glue gun!). Pin the cone in place at the back of the head.

As for the buttons? She simply pushed them into place to cover her eyes – no glue necessary.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
