"Tootsie Roll" Costume

Halloween is just around the corner, yay!  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  ;)  So, when my friend asked me to make her a costume this year, I knew we would have fun.  She sent me a picture of the outfit she wanted and went from there.  I self-drafted the "Tootsie Roll" costume and I think it came out great.  :)

Here is the orginial version
