Introduction: Gravity Falls Journal #3 Costume

My husband and I wanted to dress up as characters from our favorite Disney XD TV show, Gravity Falls. Since he was dressing up as Dipper, I had to figure out what my costume would be: his twin sister, Mabel? Nope. His older crush, Wendy? Nope. Finally it hit me; I'd be the love of Dipper's life: trusty Journal #3.

Step 1: Make Design in Photoshop

2. Fill with a gold gradient.

3. Add the number 3.

4. Size to fill up a letter size (8.5*11 inch) page.

Step 2: Print on Iron-On Transfer Paper

Step 3: Iron Design on Dress

1. Stretch your fabric onto an ironing board.

2. Place and center the design on the dress face-side up.

3. Gently lay the paper that came with the iron-transfer paper over your design.

4. With your iron on low, iron your design from the center to the edges repeatedly until secure.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

1. Add any embellishments for the journal. I wore a gold tassel necklace to resemble a bookmark and red lipstick.

2. Get your friends to coordinate and have a Mystery Shack Halloween at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!
