This year is going to be really exciting because we have the "Show Images Only" feature now...woohoo!

Here are our "scrapbooks" from...
2006 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=123346.0
2005 https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=60346.0

Now, I want to see completed costumes for 2007!!

  • Post homemade creative costumes here, not store bought costumes.   Everyone knows what Hot Topic's costumes look like, we want to see YOURS!  Smiley
  • Feel free to start a thread ALL about your costume and come to this thread to post a photo or two and a link to your detailed thread.  I'd like this thread to be one long photo scrapbook!  (you won't get deleted for "double posting")
  • Post photos and brief descriptions here.  If you don't have a photo...this isn't the thread for your project.  Wink
  • If your costume was inspired by another custome, please post a link & give credit to that person/costume.
  • Post costumes YOU made or are going to wear THIS year, not costumes your brother's sister's doggie, Fluffy wore in 1993.  Cheesy

Do more of what makes you happy.

My roommates and I are all dressing up as Harry Potter characters. I'm pretty psyched to be Hermione! Smiley

Anyhoo, I will just be wearing a gray skirt & white buttondown, but in true craftster style, I bought us solid color ties from Walmart and used masking tape to make my own striped Hogwarts ties!

Happy Halloween guys!!

This year's costume was inspired by the So You Think You Can Dance Top 20 Group Dance 2006, choreographed by Wade Robinson to Roisin Murphy's Rama Lama Band Bang.

There are TONS of photos of the completed costume at the following link, plus a link to the video of the inspiration:


Happy Hallowe'en!

Here is my satyr costume.  I made the legs from fabric I got from hancocks, I bought ninja boots for the hooves and my horns came from party city, scarf was also made by yours truly.  I am not going to have kids because they will only disappoint me after creating this costume.
I'm made out of Laffy Taffy.

Here's the family and I in costume last night for a party!

The one that required the most crafting was our friend as Pocahantas. Lots of feathers, beads, shells and hot glue on thrifted boots, top, and skirt, plus armbands, hair twists and feathers, a bow and arrow, and a tomohawk.
I'm Miss Rhode Island 1985, but all I had to make was the sash, because I just had to wear this dress once I found it. It's autographedby Vanna White! All it needed was a zipper repair and a bit of pressing. Lots of hairspray, blue shadow and hot pink lipstick here. The shoes are thrifted, and everything else was either borrowed or something I had. The gloves are from my prom 1996, aack!

My sister and her husband are MJ and Lisa Marie with little Blanket dressed up for trick or treating. My sister put all of this together from thrifted and borrowed stuff, then bought wigs and makeup. We had a lot of fun making my brother in law into a whitish black man (esp. since my sis actually has vitiligo, the disease that made MJ lighten his skin). Blanket was the most expensive part! Again, not a ton of crafting, but they always have such funny costumes I had post them, too. Last year he was Aunt Jemima. I'm trying to get them to go as Bowie and Iman next year.

Ok so this year I decided to be a peacock. I also decided to make my costume for the first time. This is my first wearable craft ever & i should mention that my sewing machine is broken so i had to HAND SEW every bit lol. *And sadly, I will NOT get to wear it because I have to work halloween!!!* Sad

I found this monstrously ugly 80s dress at a secondhand shop that was the perfect color and form. The back was longer than the front, so it could easily be converted to a tail. I bought it for 3 dollars!

It was originally probably a size 8 or so, (i am a size 20) and had ugly puffy sleeves and disgusting doily-like trim. I had an old blue pillowcase and other fabrics and bias tape, and this is what i came up with:

It's not a very literal looking peacock, its more of an interpretation.


the tailfeathers:

I'm going to wear these hairfalls with it, they match the purple trim i put on the dress:
(i made them last year, theyre just an addition to my costume..i hope this doesnt violate any rules by posting these, if it does, please feel free to remove this part.)

Comments much appreciated!!

I'm being the Black Dahlia this year. I learned how to make realistic-looking cuts for it and everything! Here's my costume:

And here's my makeup close up. My roommates are Kat Von D and Derek Smalls from Spinal Tap.

...And here's some pictures of the rest of Tap, just for good measure.

Here's a different night with better makeup. I had a bunch of people look at me and be like, "Ew...that's disgusting." Which is a good thing, right?

But back to my costume, I made the dress from this pattern: http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V2858.htm?tab=vintage_vogue&page=2 (Thank you Miss Violaceous!) and just used crappy black spray for my hair, which I'm a little disappointed about the outcome. I spent so much damn time drawing all of Kat Von D's tattoos on that I didn't have a lot of time to get my hair to work! Oh well, maybe next time. Anyways, happy Halloween!
