For Halloween this year my daughter went as a "pile of leaves". I used a "flower girl" style dress I found at a thrift store for the base and then covered the whole thing in fake leaves attaching them with lots of hot glue. The fan style back is made from fairy wings that had been cut in half and repositioned to create a fan effect. While the dress was simple to create it was very time consuming. I'm also pretty sure I have no finger prints left after burning them off from excessive hot glue use. Such is the life of a crafter, right? Smiley









For my son I created a "Finn" costume. (FYI, Finn is the main character from a cartoon called "Adventure Time".) I am only entering the "pile of leaves" costume in this challenge, but I had to show of his costume as well. Smiley The backpack is made from felt and hot glue. The rest of the costume pieces were purchased.

Best (and most unique) baby costume ever.  It looks great.  I also love your son's costume.

How cute!  I did something similar for my son when he was about the same age, but he was a tree.  I used a camouflage-print hooded sweatshirt and attached tons of fake leaves all over it.  Then I stuck a little fake nest with an egg inside on top of the hood, and stitched a little stuffed squirrel to one sleeve.  He wore it with brown pants (for the tree trunk).  I stitched on all the leaves instead of using glue, and it was SUCH a pain in the neck.  But boy, was he cute.  Nice job!

Thanks everyone! It has been so much fun to see people's reaction to this costume. I might have to break it out again so she can wear it to Thanksgiving dinner. We did have several people think she was a turkey while we were out trick or treating. Smiley
