Goblins and Rainbow Brites, and Harry Potters galore!

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!

Once the challenge is completed, we'll move all of the entries to the Halloween board, so they can be easily accessed for years to come, too! Kiss

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 2018 ONLY), 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 an obvious common theme, you can enter them together as one entry.

Rules:

  • Enter costumes crafted for Halloween 2018 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 8 2018. No sooner.  No later.  On Nov 1, there will be a special folder created for entries.  We will reply with the folder/board link here on this thread.
  • Voting will happen from Nov 13 - Nov 20 2018.
  • 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, we'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) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

This one is definitely a nutcracker, but it's in a magazine, so giving it a shot anyway!

4  Cricut Stencil Bridal Shower Gift in Stenciling: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: August 20, 2018 10:23:43 AM
Someone on a local Facebook group was looking for someone to make a custom stencil for her [for a bridal shower gift she wanted to give 3 days later! Cheesy].  I had some time one evening last week, so I gave it a whirl for her.

She mentioned wanting their names at the bottom, and I had always wanted to try the knockout method, so it gave me the push I needed to learn it.  I don't necessarily adore the Design Space interface (that's an understatement), so I did that part in Photoshop and just inserted it as an image in DS.

I covered it with transfer tape, so she could easily move it to her board.  She did all of the stenciling herself, but sent me photos from the shower yesterday.  It turned out so well!

10  Paint Wall / Art Wall in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by sweets4ever on: July 30, 2018 11:59:43 AM
I suppose this is more of an "ongoing project" rather than completed, but it shall do. Smiley  Our kids are always doodling and painting, so I wanted to give them a space to just create to their hearts' content.  We've had chalkboard walls in the past, but I wanted something a little different.



I wandered around our house looking for THE perfect wall, but nothing was quite clicking. Undecided  I didn't want them to have carpet at their feet with the paint pots & water in use, and I wanted them to be indoors (it gets HOT here in Phoenix summers!), but still have lots of natural light when at all possible.  And then I found it!  We walk by this big old canvas multiple times per day and just never truly saw it. Roll Eyes  It was perfect!  We have a two car garage, but only one car, so it was just space waiting to be loved.



Slapped on two coats of high gloss white paint and it was good to go.  Fortunately, with the aforementioned heat, paint here dries very quickly Cheesy so mr.sweets4ever and I painted after the kids went to sleep one night.  We set out the step stool, paints & water jars and let them discover it the next morning.



They've spent hourrrrs out there.  Painting, singing, dancing.  For now, during the summer, we just close the garage through the afternoon, so mornings & evenings are fresh air and natural light galore.  Once fall, winter & spring are upon us, the door can stay open all day/as they would like.







"The wall" is like a moth to a flame.  If you pass by it, it just calls to you. Cheesy  You feel the NEED to create.



And what a view when we pull into the garage.  That's quite a greeting. Smiley  And it's always changing!



I'm not even sure how the dinosaur got out there recently, but I like it. Cheesy
