>Halloween Costumes 2010

>
I am so, so happy with how well my costume making went this Halloween. As mentioned in my previous posts, it was my first full on garment so I was worried whether or not I could pull it off. While it wouldn’t be able to be sold in stores anytime soon, due to some of my crazy stitching, I am so proud of how my daughter’s Pink Cheetah outfit turned out. It was wearable and functional. And it held up for both her preschool party and Halloween night. No wardrobe malfunctions here!

My husband has a tendency to do low commitment Halloween costumes. Meaning he doesn’t like anything too overly complicated. The more he gets to wear normal clothes the better. So we came up with the idea for him to be Wolf Man. We both agreed that a typical plastic wolf mask would be lame (and not good for the kiddies.) So we were quite happy when we came across the werewolf hood in Simplicity pattern#: 2513. It was my first time working with fur and yes it does get everywhere! But it was pretty easy to sew. Luckily we were only doing the hood and not the full on pattern including the chest plate. I am quite proud of it.

As for myself, well I had to take a backseat to a homemade costume since I was focusing more on them. But I got the Sherlock Holmes idea from the Simplicity 2513 pattern. I already had a tweed capelette, a fancy hat, and oxford shoes. All I had to do was pickup a smoking pipe and magnifying glass and I was all set 😉
