In honor of being in Korea, Isaac decided that he wanted to be Psy, of Oopa Gangnum Style fame for Halloween. Are you not familiar with Gangnum Style? Then you HAVE to watch the video, I die every-time I watch it, the words are really funny in English too, they talk about how it is better to be smart then muscular, and modesty is the real sexy for women, in complete contrast to what you would think! Gangnum is the fancy shopping district in Seoul, and oopa means father, so it's essentially making fun of sugar daddy style/mac daddy style. (you should probaby watch the video EVEN if you've seen it before, don't worry, I'll wait!)
You feel happier now right? Anyway, Isaac wanted a tuxedo like Psy, and I looked in my stash and found a lime green tropical weight wool, that would be perfect for making this version of Psy's signature look,
I used this pattern (I know a pattern right!) to make the jacket, but I heavily modified the collar to get the rounded tuxedo shape, and eliminated all the edge seam allowances so I could bind them in the black cotton bias tape (I made the tape since I couldn't find any ready made here) I cheated and the pockets are just flaps, not real pockets, and there is no facing in it or shoulder pads (couldn't readily get any here in Korea)
And here is my little ham of a Psy,
So that's the last of the Halloween costumes I made this year! I might upload some photo's later of what Paul and I wear, but we will see what comes together with that!
