ooh I didn't know that there was an official contest!

here's my thread in the Halloween forum with directions

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=130480.0



edit to add Andy is 10 and decided on the costume idea - we brainstormed together and tried out a few ideas

every year I make the costumes for both sons - Andy just wants to be more scary every year

That is so clever!
Reminds me of when I was little.  My friend and I were a 2 headed monster.  She was much shorter than me, so I stuck my head out of the top of a big jacket and she stuck her head out of the middle.
I bet Andy got lots of compliments.

Andy rocks!!! He must be 1) very creative (like his mom)  Wink and 2), very lucky to have a mom who could and would help him do this, so mom rocks too!! Great Job!

My craft supply philosophy I stole from a line from AVP. ''I'd rather have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.'' But, they were talking about a condom. Tongue

That is pretty sweet.  That's awesome that you make the costumes.  My ma made me a kitty costume one year and I wore it for the rest of the year.  Actually I still have it.  I let my niece borrow it, but I'm saving it for my own kids.

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals i've trapped
Have all become my pets
And i'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings

Obviously this is a little late, but this is AMAZING! When I was younger I always wanted to be a headless... something. Unfortunately I didn't have creative parents to help me come up with this! Too cool.
