Well done!! I especially like your hat. All the fluff and feathers really speak of the fashion of the time. Your husband looks quite pleased as well.  Grin

Oh, that turned out great!! I love all the trim and details you put in to it. My daughter (3 yrs old) loves it too. Looks like I'll be doctoring up her pink cape I made her last year to look a bit more like this one!  Smiley

What mandanak said!! Seriously, that's exactly how I'd go about it and I think your idea is spot on. I would definitely spring for the vinyl since you're only buying a small amount. If you can't find brown vinyl maybe some canvas/duck type material would be good.

My daughter wanted to go as Willy Wonka from the original movie made in 1971:

As a guy, I don't mind seeing the sexy costumes so much Wink but enough is enough. They are really getting ridiculous and there are way too many of them out there. When did Halloween become an excuse to go out in public in your undies?

I love to see cool, inventive, original costumes when I go to a party. I don't expect everyone to learn to sew or create and to make something incredible. I think just a little creativity and originality of idea could go a long way. A woman can dress up sexy for Halloween and still be in a great costume. How many sexy referees, cops, nurses and 80's cartoon characters (Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Bright, etc) do we need at one party?

I guess that's what I get for going to a big commercial party two years ago...

Thanks, All!! She's seen both movies, new and old, and prefers the old one. I agree that it is surprising to see a three year old girl wanting to dress up as Willy Wonka but it was her first pick this year. She asks to watch the movie almost every night and we probably watch at least some of it once a week or so. Too funny!

Hello all!! I've been commenting for a while now but haven't posted any of my projects. Halloween is my big project time so here we go.

This year my daughter wanted to be Willy Wonka for Halloween. Not the modern Johnny Depp Wonka but the original Gene Wilder Wonka. Here's what I cooked up for her.



The hat, vest, jacket and cane are all handmade. I found a tutorial via ThreadBanger that I used to draft the pattern for the vest. I used that same pattern, slightly adjusted, and added sleeves to make the coat. The hat was made with poster board and tape then covered in orange felt. I used hot glue to attach the felt. I'm not entirely happy with some of the lumpy areas but it is a costume for a 3 year old so I let go of that. The hat came out very large and looks pretty big on her but I think that adds to the overall look of the costume. It is Willy Wonka, after all!!

She's really happy with it (and so am I) and after taking the pictures tonight she had to call her grandma and her aunt so they could get online and see the pictures. Let me know what you think!
