what's white, black, and super cuddly? a hand-sewn and crocheted panda costume, that's what! this year for halloween i decided to play into my asian stereotype - oh there were peace signs at every camera flash. i crocheted my scoodie (hoodie + scarf) and sewed my furry black and white dress with leftover white furry fabric and a black old navy tank. i crocheted my big bamboo stick and sewed a zipper around the bottom so that it would double as a purse. I used some black furry fabric for around my boots and VOILA! a squishy, huggable, and fairly warm costume for the freezing temperatures we experience on halloween in alaska. rawr.
