Introduction: Gravity Falls Journal #3 Costume

About: Scholar. Instructor. Web & Graphic Designer. Editor. Maker. Hacker. Photographer. TV Watcher. Baker. Florida Gator.

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.

    So cool! You should make the actual journal for a tutorial and enter it into the Halloween props contest- I think it would have a real shot at winning! ~Momoluv
