This year my boyfriend and I decided to dress up as Blinky and Clyde, the red and orange ghosts from Pac-Man.  I'm only submitting Clyde for consideration because Blinky has a less than stellar paint job Embarrassed.  Our costumes were partly inspired by the awesome video game crafts featured on spritestitch.com.

The ghosts are made out of cardboard and I used leftover binding for the straps.

The Front


The Back (Clyde after Pac-Man eats a power pellet)




On Saturday we attended a Halloween street festival and we received a lot of positive feedback for our costumes.  As a naturally shy person, all the attention seemed a little overwhelming.  But I still appreciated all the compliments.  Several people even asked to take our picture.

If you're interested in constructing your own costumes you can check out a two part tutorial I wrote for my blog:

Thanks for the compliments, guys.  Lady Orizas, I wish I could take credit for the paint job but my boyfriend did that part.  Tongue
