Wow!
I'm so excited and honored!  I enter almost every year but this is the first time I won...there is so much talent here!!!
Before I entered the contest, I put a tutorial on the Halloween Costume board if anyone wants to see the tutorial

This is crazy amazing!!

Did you know about the costume challenge?  Would you like to move your project there to enter it?  Here's more info!   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440991.0
Thanks sweet4ever!
I entered with just a picture...thought a tutorial and entry were two different things...what would be better?

When my daughter said she wanted to be Groot I was excited...then I got a new job that included traveling....I was only home for 2 days in the whole month of October.  I'm so happy I was able to finish it in 2 days and I LOVE how it came out.

Wonderful costume.  I do hope she gets to use it more than once after so much work went into it. So impressed that you did it all in 2 days, even with help.
Me too...last year she got hired to do a birthday party with the Olaf I made her...lol.

Creative, original, very detailed...a fantastic costume.
It looks like you are a professional costume maker or stage helper. Your kids are lucky! And the teens will soon realize how great their mom is for spending time to make them all these fabulous homemade costumes instead of buying ones.


I have designed for shows but I'm completely self taught....I come up with crazy ideas and have a belief that I can figure it out once I start Smiley

This is amazing, especially considering that you did it so quickly! Thanks for sharing your technique, too. While I think I have the basic construction skills, I don't think I have the painting skills, but I know people who could help on that part. You've given me ideas for future costumes!

I bet you could do it!
Glad I could inspire you!

The beautiful painting really makes it. I especially appreciate that you spent the most time on the head and the least on the legs: that's the order in which people will look at it, and most will not notice that the legs are less detailed!

Thanks for the praise, Wulf!

What an incredible job in such a short time!  wow--I bet it was because you had a fabulous helper! Grin

Interesting use of materials...who knew expanding foam was so user friendly for costumes!

Your paint job was also very realistic!  I hope your daughter had fun helping to make it and also wearing it!

Thanks for the praise Smiley

My daughter was so proud of herself for helping so much on this project!  She's becoming quite the little crafter!
The Great Stuff wasn't really right for this because it did end up breaking on the knees.  If I had thought about it a little more, I would have done the knees separately so there was something more flexible there....but for super quick...it worked great!
