Oh my gosh, Halloween!! Do you think stores will have a run on striped sweaters, down vests, eye patches, wax lips, Jemaine glasses, and sideburns?

No, no, she's a fish that's just a little bit

If you really want the sweater, find someone who knits and show them a picture. If you don't know any knitters, you could probably post a listing someplace like craigs' list to find one.

I must agree it is a nice sweater.

I can make one out of felt...that is, if you are the size of a hand...

That doll is friggin' hilarious! :D

Anyway, I'm getting closer and closer to obtaining the elusive sweater. The area thrift stores weren't cutting it, so I'm now using eBay power to enhance my search.

Okay, I found one! It's not exactly the same, but it's close enough for me. Plus it was really cheap. :)

Guess what I'll be wearing to the show?

That is pretty darn close... :clap: Soooo... Where'd you get it? Chain store? Thrift store? Someone else's closet? Inquiring minds want to know. :wink:

eBay. :) Is it sad that I searched through literally 3,100 sweaters to find one that was even close?

But now I can put that to rest - I now have my "Bret sweater" and my "Jemaine jacket". I'm happy now.

I asked a knitter who makes custom sweaters, and she told me it would be in the area of $195.

I'll take my chances in thrift stores.
