I asked my oldest boy what he'd like to dress up as for Halloween this year, and he decided a monster was the thing to be.  So he gave me a list of characteristics he wanted (fuzzy, blue, green horns, four eyes, scary teeth), and I drew my interpretation.  He gave it the okay, and I got to work!

Here's the pattern I used for a base (basic jumpsuit + modified panda headpiece):



And here's how I bastardized it!



Eldest monster (workin' the camera):



Middle child monster:



Baby monster (he's laying on the horns, but he has them too):



And the lot of 'em (baby's horns are hidden again--I promise they're there):




Monsterrific!  (groan)

Wow, these costumes are awesome!!

....that's about all I have to say on the matter. The costumes look very warm...and cuddly. How did you do the eyes?

What makes these costumes so great isn't their construction (though they look marvelously made)...it's the boys' reaction to them.  They clearly loved being monsters!  Growls, snarls, and all! Roll Eyes

Those are great, and that's awesome that you were able to make them something that they customized.  What a fun mom! Great job!

You get the awesome mom of the year award!  Grin I, too, love the baby's confused and somewhat apprehensive look. Like, "Should I be freaking out? Crying? Laughing?"
