Star Man Halloween Costume

        This is a quilted wall hanging I made.  I used my son's Halloween costume he wore in 2nd grade.  The mask is made from nylons and batting.  The costume was a metallic ladies dress I found at a second hand shop, and cut to make his little space uniform.  The plastic dangles are re purposed from an old lamp.  And the decorative insignia was made using pellon and black marker.
        Ray wore this in October of 1984, and I made it into this piece in July of 1992.  It measures about 25" x 32".  I bring it out, with the rest of the Halloween decor, and hang it up in the porch.
