So, as regards the Olive Oyl and Popeye costumes:

I know just how frustrating it is to need things, know EXACTLY what you want, and yet, it seems to not exist.

First, I wanted to help you draft the collar so you can work with just a red sweater or long-sleeve tee. To that end:

Peter Pan Collar Tutorial
Scalloped Hem

Then I went looking at other people's DIY costumes, and HOLY COW, GENIUS! This woman did a RUFFLED NECKLINE! It is entirely within the realm of possibility that THIS is what the original artists had intended!

Ah!  Just the inspiration I need.  I picked up a Little Red Ridding Hood costume pattern back in July or something, but haven't actually started yet! 

Ok... I'm going to start cutting out the pieces now.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't Olive Oyl's skirt just a simple A-line skirt?

I hate it when my party can't start cause Ke$ha didn't walk in.

Yupp. There are several tutorials on here for one, just add a yellow stripe on the bottom.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

I'm currently working on a little red riding hood costume for my toddler.  I'm using Simplicity 2571, and it is kicking my butt! 

Mr.  Skrabadoo is going out as the wolf, but I am just making him a hood with ears out of fun fur. I'll probably be grandma.  Tongue

Last year my little one was Yoda.

It is, its a black A-line skirt with a yellow band around the bottom.

Thank you so much for all the tips! I really apreciate it, I'm hoping to try and do the ruffled neckline I really like the look of it. Does anyone know where I could find a tutorial for a ruffled neckline? BTW I was able to find a black skirt so I just need to add a thick yellow ribbon towards the bottom. I also got a black polo shirt to start the hubbys popeye costume. I also need to figure out how to add the collar thingy onto his shirt. I kinda have an idea of how I'll do it I'm just not sure if it will play out the way it is in my head.

On Popeye's shirt, if you look up pictures from the original cartoon, it's actually like a really big bandana/scarf draped over his shoulders. I would just make a bandana and stencil (with tape) a black square around it. Note:
