Creepy stripes

My daughter wants to be what she calls a vampirate for Halloween. That is a pirate that is a vampire. I am starting to get things figured out. Until the discontinued (of course) I will be keeping the pattern details a secret. Of course I have been scouring the internet for creepy stripes.

My first choice (my daughter’s too) is
creepy stripes

but at $17 per yard I think it is too much for fabric for a costume. Someone gave me the brilliant idea to diy the stripes on black fabric. Since bleach and I don’t work well together, I tried a few other ideas.


The blue is watered down puff paint, the purple is painted with a brush, and both rows of red are done with a syringe filled with paint. I think the red is closest but will also use a fine brush to make a line so there are no gaps.
