This is the first year I actually crafted together my own costume, so I went with something I thought would be easy to make, comfy, warm, and a little odd: The Great Hoodie Octopus


It's just a huge hoodie I cut up and hand sewed into tubes stuffed with scarves and covered with little foam "suction cups" which were extracted from a foam chair pad thingie. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. =)

WOW! That's such a cute idea, and you executed it so well! The fact that it's a hoodie makes you look even more like an octopus and the little suction cups are just too cute Cheesy

I love that the bottom of the jacket makes it look like cuffs. It looks like you actually took the time to make extra jacket arms... FANTASTIC!
