my fiance and i went as the dia de los muertos bride and groom this year [which is actually kind of weirdly sweet, since we're getting married next year, right after halloween! hee hee].

the masks were cheap-o flimsy plastic masks that i plastered over, sanded & handpainted. the floral headdress was a foam visor worn backwards and on top of my head, covered in silk flowers. i also made the veil and his boutonniere.

the clothes, i admit, were not handmade--the dress, however, is a heavily altered goodwill dress that i scored 5 years ago, and i take credit for all the alterations. it used to have giant 80s sleeves, and no waist--i did a lot of shaping. Smiley

My son was a cowboy. He could have been an extra in a movie...but he wouldn't keep his hat on. Sad
I made the vest and chaps. The material is a faux leather. It's just a cotton blend, but the print looks so much like leather that you have to touch it to realize it's not.
Final fitting:

Here is a pic of the costume I made for my Daughter for Halloween
It was made using no patterns - the only thing not made by me was the crinoline and the headband

I got this idea from seeing on someone's blog (I forget who's) a crocheted version of what I have since termed "the slutty hamburger." Since I'm too lazy to learn to crochet, I decided to sew my Halloween costume.

The base dress is reconstructed from a pair of gaucho pants, and all the toppings and the burger are made from old T-shirts. Everything is machine-sewn except for the lettuce, which was hand-done, and the sesame seeds, which were taped on because I ran out of time before going out.

I'm planning on adding straps and wearing it with knee-length leggings as a summer outfit because I loved how it turned out.

All the costumes look great, as always... here is my humble contribution:

The dress was some gray sweatpant-ish fabric I got on sale, and some fabric remnants, cut up t-shirts, Sharpies, yarn-embroidery, and iron-ons (unfortunately it's hard to see the Nintendo logo, Start, Select, and A and B buttons in these pictures) and the necklace was a Perler creation made by me and just put on a chain. I enjoyed every minute of working on and wearing this costume!!!

Aeon Flux (the movie version). Made from a tank top (turned inside out), shoe laces, panty hose, the elastic ruffled waistband from a pair of undies, and an ugly nylon long sleeved shirt I never wore.

Let's just start with the gratuitous photoshopped one and work our way down shall we:
