I'm not totally sure where this post should go, but here is my stepson's Halloween costume for the year. He's Link, from the Legend of Zelda. It's a pretty basic costume and I didn't sew all of it (the long sleeved shirt is still a little beyond me) but as it's my first sewing project I'm pretty proud of it. Plus, he loves it, so seeing the big grin on his face as he wears it is pretty rewarding.

I made the tunic and pants without a pattern; I just used an old T-shirt and pair of sweat pants of his and traced them onto the material, then cut, sewed, and prayed it would work! Thankfully it did, although I'm hoping next year I will be able to make something a little fancier.
The hat was super easy, we just measured around his head and then sewed the cloth together to make a little point. Soooo cute!

Thank-you! It's definitely inspired me to continue learning to sew. This time next year I want to have conquered sleeves  Wink

Oh, I LOVE gamer costumes!  Is that an ocarina he's holding?

Captain Fluffernutter disapproves most vehemently.  For shame . . .

No it's just a nerf sword...we didn't get that elaborate, lol, especially since he wasn't allowed to take props to his class party. And yah, that's exactly what all my gamer friends said - why is he such a low level? Haha...it's cause I'm a sewing noob!
Thanks for the comments everyone! It's so true, Halloween is such an inspiring and motivating time to sew, and I think you are a bit easier on yourself because it's not about being "perfect" it's about the whole effect.
I'll be posing pictures of my costume for the current challenge later. It's pretty dope, based on an anime character from the show Slayers. Took FOREVER, though.
