I love Halloween, but I'll be honest, I don't usually go above and beyond. I appreciate it when other people do, but I'm not much of a decorator or party thrower. It's just not my bag. We decorate a little. And carve pumpkins - almost always with my sister, Cait. And bake cookies and pumpkin seeds.
I do, however, love a good costume. And I love making a good costume. It's kind of like a puzzle as I try to get something to look as close to a cartoon or movie as I can in real life. Often, there's no real pattern - just a lot of eyeballing.
But here are a few homemade costumes - at least the ones I had scanned already. For some reason, there are more pictures of Corwin in costume than Killian - mostly just the luck of the scan.
"Days...weeks...months...years...who knows," says Eeyore Corwin. (6 mos)
So...what are some of your favorite Halloween traditions? Got any favorite costumes?
Click the other bloggers names for theirs.
Sure, lady, put us all to shame. Those are fantastic costumes. :)
I'm with Jess. What are you magic?? Those costumes are awesome. And you eye-balled them??? You are magic.
Fabric eyeballing is easier than say...is that dresser gonna fit up that stairway. :D But thank you! :)
So wish I lived closer so I could get you to teach me to sew! You rock lady!
