My flash of brilliance for my Halloween Costume this year came while watching old music videos being shown on network TV. There was a slew of Queen videos and Queen is my all time favorite band. I decided had to be Freddie for Halloween. I started a google images search and they make a costume from the Wembley Stadium Concert, but that's not really what comes to mind for me when I think of Freddie. Something in spandex or white pants and a sweet leather jacket were more what came to mind, with a sash and a wife beater.
He wore a lot of wrist bands, and since I wasn't going to be making much of my outfit, I decided to bead one with him in mind, not just copying one that he had (normally solid or stripes). I decided to keep it simple but use red antique beads and make a lightening bolt down the center of it.

I finished it off with black leather lacing up the back of it instead of trying to integrate a clasp. This helped with the theme of the outfit. All in all, I think it was a success!
