I make costumes all year long, but I posted my stuff to the general forum (didn't see they opened up a halloween costume forum):


But, this one I liked the best

OK, so these are definantly late but I made costumes for my son, daughter, three nieces, SIL and myself for Halloween this last year. I only just found Craftster so here goes.  Smiley
First is me. The picture on the Butterick pattern I used looks a bit Civil War-ish but I don't think that is what my dress looks like. Oh, well, I still like it a lot.

DD wanted to be a princess as did all my nieces, naturally, and my son wanted to be their knight in shining armor. LOL. All of these costumes came from the same Simplicity pattern, I just changed the sleeves after having such a hard time with the long sleeves. My daughters hem looks a bit funny in this pic. The dress was a little long so I had to saftey pin it up.

Niece 2

Niece 3

My son still wears this costume- it's the only dress up thing I have for him.

My SIL even humored me by dressing in one of my costumes. She was such a sport considering she was 7 1/2 months pregnant at the time. Smiley I'm so proud of this dress!

And, finally, a group shot.

Thanks for looking!

My daughter wanted to be a banshee for Halloween  Smiley Her face was actually greenish but it's hard to tell.

this is crazy late, but i've been pretty lazy for a while. This year I went as a bunny art doll, i was going to do marionette but i changed my mind at the last minute. only the hood is handmade, i'm still amazed i pulled it off, i was in that "crafting zone" where you are making something and all your attention is focused on it and then afterwards, you have no idea what you did, lol. anyway, here are some pics. the makeup is also my design.

Very cute!  I really love your make up.  My Daughter wants to be a Ghoul Scout next year for Halloween.  She will be starting middle school so something kind of cool.  Any tips on the makeup?  I love the eyes and mouth.

The hood turned out great too!

A little late but new to Craftster. I posted these on the kids clothing thread but just saw the Halloween one now so wanted to share with you guys too. Both of these costumes are made from recycled materials. The only thing new on either costume is the peacock feathers for the tail. All of the rest was yarn, sheets, curtains, old shirts and pillow cases that were gotten at thrift shops or at the recycle center. The tail on the peacock actually worked. I would be more than happy to try and guide folks through how to do this if anyone is interested just let me know. Smiley Hope you enjoy them as much as the girls did.

Much Peace,

for halloween this year, i decided to go as my favorite drink: a gin and tonic!

i taped light grey fabric to a clear shower curtain with packing tape. after cutting out all the pieces, i assembled it into a dress (copied from an existing dress i already owned).

to finish it off, i hot glued bubbles that i cut from the biggest bubbled wrap i could find all over the dress. theni covered a piece of cardboard in fabric to look like a lime. i 'wedged' it into the top of my dress, attached a paper straw to my head, hot glued a few bubbles to some bobby pins and presto: gin and tonic!

the whole thing

my hair

also, notice the nice 'ice cube' jewelry i found at target.
i also had a pair of clear wedge sandals that i found onlie really cheap, but i don't have a picture of them :[

what do you think?
