Here are the finished costumes:
Space Alien/saucer and Vampire puppy.

We got lots of oohs and even a round of applause during trick or treating!
The saucer looked especially awesome after dark with the lights around the rim. Unfortunately I didn't photograph it then

Here's my daughter's "Space Girl" costume from this year.  She's 5.

We didn't get pictures in the dark, but the costume has clear plastic things around the bottom of the skirt and on the shoulders to hold glow sticks.  She also got glow bracelets and a "space gun" with lights and noise.

The second one shows the helmet.  We also put glow sticks in the top as antenna.


Obsessed with Monster High dolls lately.

This year I was Joan Holloway of Mad Men:

I sewed the dress myself from a really easy New Look pattern, and then styled the wig myself from a $16 cheapo halloween wig.

The necklace is also approximated from a crochet hook, which makes me laugh.

My daughter asked me to build a Tomas (The Orphanage) costume for her so here it is. The mask is our favourite. Thanks for looking!.

Hi =]

I was a satyress....It's odd, and everyone is like "what are you supposed to be" but it made me happy....I don't know, the idea of furry pants just makes me giggle even though they made my hiney look huge.

Hope you like it Smiley

It's a moat.  Filled with badgers.

I was a scarecrow. I had all of the clothes, made the mask out of burlap, twine and yarn, and bought the hat.

I almost feel bad that I made a little girl cry, but that was my objective (though not necessarily little girls) and i made a bunch of people scream just by moving when they though i was an actual scarecrow. Cheesy

I am going as a Victorian lady. The hat is made from a ruffle from the old prom dress I used as a skirt. The dress had a train! Perfect! The bustled part is a bridesmaid's dress. The only new part is the corset, and it was only $15!

If at first you don't succeed, go buy more fabric.
