My very good friend and I used to laugh for hours doing crab impressions, scuttling past windows and confusing family members and our other "normal" friends. I decided I would crochet a crab costume in honor of our memories and the many laugh-until-you-cry-and-then-choke moments.

I crocheted a scoodie, which is a scarf with a hood, and attached crab claw pockets at the end. Since I live in Alaska, it's nice to have something to keep me warm-ish while out and about for Halloween shenanigans. I made the left claw bigger than the right claw to be crab-atomically correct. *click clack*

I also crocheted a crab shell backpack which I finished in time for the second weekend out, mostly because I always seem to lose essential things such as credit cards, phone, house keys, etc. on Halloween night. I wanted a prop that would double as a purse/backpack! I sewed a zipper at the top opening to keep my treasures safe inside the shell!

I hope you like my crab costume! It was so much fun to wear!!
