My daughter told me that she wanted to be scary but not to scary for Halloween. After brain storming and doing a few sketched of different ideas she decided on this pretty monster costume. We started with the dress first. 4 skeins of yarn later and lots of sewing we had a dress for her to wear.

I made her a ear flap hat using blue furry fabric that I recycled from a huge robe I found at the thrift store. I also used the fabric from the robe to line her dress top and to make her some really neat blue furry boots!
I cut almost a million pieces of blue and green yarn for the Mohawk that goes down the middle of her head.

I crocheted the eyeballs and sewed them on. I also put huge pom poms on the hat ties. She was worried that someone would think she was a boy monster so I crocheted 2 yellow flowers and attached them to both sides of the monster hair.
Here is a close up of the hat.

Just as we were about to walk out the door to trick r treat she decided that she wanted her face painted.
I think it really added to her costume and she thought it was the greatest thing ever! After seeing how much friends spent on costumes at the Halloween Stores for their children I am proud to say that this costume only cost around $10.00 for me to make and it lasted all the way through Halloween without getting tore up LOL So anyways here she is already to go out and get LOTS of candy.
