    Thanks for this post. It never even occurred to me that Rit Dye would have a website. I love the Halloween t-shirts they show. They have some interesting ideas.

    I don't have an entire costume to post, so I won't post for the contest, but I've been working on some pieces for my grown-up Alice for the Steampunk Mad Hatter Tea Party we are having in my front yard on Halloween this year: I've finished the top hat (which was originally bowler), repaired a granny boot heel and am getting close to being finished with my quick but altered Eton Jacket. I still have to sew on the lapel, make and apply the bias tape, then I just need to tack the turn back cuffs and I'll be ready for Monday!

    I love Halloween!
