Still lurking, haven't done much lately. Does building computers from old parts count?
You people are all amazing, I love reading this thread Smiley

This year for Halloween I made all of my children's costumes. My boys went as Link from the Legend of Zelda (one as adult Link and one as Toon Link) and my girls were both Alice in Wonderland.




The tunics were just green t-shirts. One I left as is and the other I cut off the sleeves. The undershirts were just long sleeved shirts that I purchased.

The belts and boot covers were made from some brown butter suede that were in my poppet supplies. The tutorial I used for the boot covers can be found here.

My older son borrowed his sisters white leggings and my younger son is wearing tights that I purchased. I couldn't find fleece or jersey knit in the right shade of green for the hats, so I bought another t-shirt and just cut out triangles and sewed them together.

The swords were purchased at a Halloween shop and the shields is foam board that my husband and I cut out and then painted.



With the exception of the tights, shoes, and bases of the headbands, the girls costumes were all handmade. The dresses were made based on a combination of this tutorial and a pattern that I purchased from etsy. I got the pattern for the bodice piece, because I didn't want to cut up a t-shirt and because it came as small as three months. In my babies I built in a bit of a petticoat made from nylon chiffon. For my older daughter I made a white pettiskirt following this tutorial. And it took forever, but it was worth it. All my kids love it.

I made the apron by modifying the pattern for the dress bodice.

I also managed to make this bracelet and ring.
