Craft Challenge #92 - DIY Halloween Costumes 2013, Sponsored by Susan Beal and Sewing for all Seasons - Due Nov 1 - 10 2013

Winner Announced!

Our winner this month is... librarylolita!



Check out the winning entry here! Smiley



It's Time to Enter!
The entry period is Nov 1 - 10, 2013.
To post your entry, please start a new topic for it here on this board.  Click NEW TOPIC on this board to post your entry! Smiley
Entries must be posted by Nov 10 11:59:59 PDT 2013.

If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.



October is here and we're ready to see all of the crafty costumes!  Time to showcase all of those amazingly creative DIY Halloween costumes of this season.  Each year, we've had the pleasure of viewing absolutely spectacular handcrafted costumes.  And now we want to see yours!

We're very excited to announce that Susan Beal is sponsoring our Costume Contest this year with a copy of her book, Sewing for all Seasons, 24 Stylish Projects to Stitch Throughout the Year!  Susan Beal is a craft expert, author, and the founder of West Coast Crafty. She writes for craft magazines and websites and was included in the acclaimed film Handmade Nation. She is the author of World of Geekcraft and lives in Portland, Oregon.  The first place winner will get an amazing prize package, including a copy of her book, Sewing for all Seasons!


Here are a few specifics for this challenge:
  • The costume you enter must have some handmade components.
  • It must be a costume you are making for this year (Halloween 2013), and not photos of a costume from past years.
  • If you are making a costume for someone else, and not for yourself to wear, it's okay enter it, but just remember that you can only have one entry in this contest.
  • If you are making a set of costumes for multiple people that all go together via a common theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2013 only.  Projects created before this timeframe will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • Each participant can enter ONE project (Although your entry can have multiple components to it).
  • Post your craft during the period of Nov 1 - Nov 10 2013. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 11 - Nov 18 2013.
  • The winner will be officially announced on our first business Monday of the next month -- in our December newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) a copy of Sewing for all Seasons (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
From autumns bursts of orange and red to springs lush greens, summers long-lasting golden light and winters cool whites and grays, the changing seasons provide endless artistic inspiration. In Sewing for All Seasons, author Susan Beal offers 24 beautiful projects imbued with the spirit of each season. Home sewists will enjoy stitching a cozy patchwork throw for autumn, a bright gardening apron to welcome spring, a colorful picnic quilt for summer, and soft woolen slippers for those chilly winter nights. With how-to illustrations, helpful templates and patterns, tons of color, and eye-catching photography, this book will leap off shelves and inspire crafters all year long.
(4) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

My niece designed her costume, and I'm putting it together with her, can I enter it in the contest?

Looking for Mccalls 6337 sewing pattern, if you have a copy you'd be willing to share/give/sell please let me know.  The bag costs $60 and I think perhaps I could make it cheaper/
