1988...SheRa and Thundercats!
My mom is awesome at making costumes. She never said, "They don't have a pattern for that. " We told her what we wanted and she found a way to make it. My brothers Thundercats costume is a prime example.

Mom took a muscle man costume and parts of the pattern to my costume to make Lion-O leader of the Thundercats! I think this is one of the best costumes she made. It one first place at our city's costume contest. Like the red furry creature on bros head?We always joke that the red hair was a rug or carpet, but I think its fake fur.
Thundercat Costume

This is me, SheRa, alter ego of Princess Adora and also the twin sister of He-Man. I was a goofy kid. I think I am happy because I won clue...I won first place at the city competition too. I think I was 3 almost 4 in this picture.

As a kid, I loved to wear the gold gauntlets and gold boots around the house.

Mom always made Halloween special. I can remember being excited when the costumes were ready to be tried on. Mom would even take a vacation around Halloween to finish our costumes.Shera Costume

Dad says that people around us at the costume contests would say it wasn't fair us to win first place because we bought our costumes at specialty costume shops. But what they didn't know is that my mom made all of our costumes. I think it is a huge complement to my mom. She always worked very hard on our costumes.

You can read more about my past costumes on my blog...I am posting several segments. Here is the link to the first post of my Halloween segments http://craftydoodads.blogspot.com/2008/10/halloween.html

Your costumes are totally radical! But really your mom did an excellent job, I love your story. I hope when my little one gets older I can be that cool of a mom. I am working on my sewing skills right now to prepare.

Thats how I hope my kids feel when they grow up, We always work so hard on out costumes and finally lat year my son won for his Frankenstein costume! I always am so disappointed when I see store bought costumes win because anyone can do that. here's a pic. and just for giggles here's pics of both of them last year.
I'd like to see a thread with what everyone comes up with for their kids. Always lots of adult stuff on here, never much for the kids..
