Link (from Phantom Hourglass) and Pippi Longstockings with Mr Nilsson Smiley  Scroll down, there's lots of pix!! Smiley

Link's ears and belt buckle/ornament are polymer clay. His sword, sworde holder and shield are foamcore. I didn't cover his shoes because he is wearing this all day at school, I just made "boot wraps" from suede cloth to match his belt. Link didn't really want to pose for me but I wanted to get pix that showed the sword & holder and everything. I had to make the sword holder removeable with velcor so he could sit and ride the school bus!! That's also why we used artistic liscence and put it on his bely not his back like in the game.

Pippi Longstockings is just a couple of t-shirts from AC Moore, everything else we already had here. Mr Nilsson's straw hat is also from AC Moore. I sprayed her hair orange but  left her braids alone, i don't think a 5 year old needs to deal with pipe cleaners or wire in her hair for a full day of kindergarten!!

You can tell the kid's love the costumes and they are having fun.  i think I spent maybe $20 combined.

This year I made 6 costumes!  Crazy, but we had a really fun group idea, so it was worth it. 

We're Dead Disney Princesses,and we had a"Happily Never After" party last night.

Here we are before our dead makeup:

I made Snow White, Ariel and Pocahontas all from scratch without a pattern, and then the other three (mine, Cinderella, Belle and Jasmine) were made by altering prom dresses and altering an old "medieval" dress.

Here we are after we died:

Cinderella was bludgeoned with a glass slipper by her ugly stepsister, Ariel got strangled by seaweed, Pocahontas got an arrow in the head, Jasmine was mauled by her tiger, Belle had an abusive boyfriend and Snow White (and her prince who isn't pictured here since I didn't make his costume) were killed by the seven angry dwarves.

Lots of fun!

I made two costumes for my daughter this year, but I only have a picture of the firefly so far

paper mache wings and "butt"...I attached a belt to the butt and hooked a light up inside so it will light up in the dark


I also made paper mache ladybug wings, but I don't know how to attach them...any suggestions? when I use a simple band around the arms they are a bit too heavy and slip down her back...

super cute, i love the firefly idea!! for the ladybug - can you do a reverse backpack thing maybe, with a criscross in the front if needed?

My son wanted to be a swamp monster.  His costume is made of an old shirt, used-to-be pirate pants, shiny black and purple fabrics, and shreddy gauzy fabric in black and green.

I made my son's pirate costume out of material I had in my scrap pile.  The vest is made from two cloth napkins.
