So for the past two years, I've crocheted my entire Halloween costumes. I finally got pictures from my second (2013) costume, so I thought I'd share!

I was Zelda from "The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword" this past year. All of the costume is crocheted, save for the following non-yarn elements: tights, shoe soles, bag lining (my blue Hylian Crest banner on my belt is actually a bag), bracelet cores (bracelets not pictured because I'm a doof and forgot them on photoshoot day), and hair ribbons.

I had a lot of fun making and wearing this costume! I do intend to crochet my costume for this year as well, and will be starting on that one shortly, so stay tuned for pictures of it, but in the meantime, here's some more shots of last year's:

Amazing. So much work in that and it turned out really well.  I'm impressed that you made the boots as well. I love all the little details.
I hope you will have another use for it.  It would be a shame for it to be discarded after one season  when you put so much  effort into it.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

OMGOSH! That is incredible! It reminds me of waaaaaay back when, considering knitting an entire Tenth Doctor's brown w/blue pinstripes suit just because finding that fabric was near impossible, hehe. Your costume is sooooo cute and I LOVE the wig too! I might consider knitting some things I want to make where I can't find the right fabric for it....the time I spend waffling about doing it would probably amount to the extra time it would take me to make. xD

I love all things shiny, glittery, and colorful.

I hang out in: Fiber Arts, Needlework, and the Swap Board!
