Halloween Costumes?

Postby Emmo » Thu Oct 13, 2011 8:54 pm

We did a thread on this last year... I was just wondering if anyone plans to make their LOs costumes? What will they be? Any pics?

I am going to make my sons again this year.
Here is what we did last year..

Yes, I am! We're doing a Peter pan theme. I finished colvin's costume (Peter) and made georgia's Tinkerbell costume. I still need to buy her wings though. I also made DH a captain hook costume - ruffled shirt, velvet coat, knickers. He still needs a wig/hat and a hook. I'm going as Wendy. I'm just gonna buy myself a blue nightgown. I'll try to post pics on Monday. It's always hard getting the kids to put up with fittings, but maybe they'll be more cooperative now that they're mostly done.

Jack is going as a robot too! I've got the body and head box all made and covered in foil. Now it's time for the fun part of accessorizing! DD is going to wear the clown costume that MIL made for DS. He was a Jack-in-the-box. She'll just be a clown without the box part of the costume.

Well, I got all the supplies and ended up needing to go out of town for the weekend, so I wasn't able to make it... I left the job for DH..... SOooooo... I must say, his vision is different than mine, lol, but he did make it very functional. The buttons in the front lit up different colors and made beeping noises when you pushed them. And it had lots of working knobs and he actually took apart an old DVD player and added lots of crap on it, lol. And he added parts that plugged into each other. The back had this big glowing light on it and the head plugged into the body, lol. Quite the man's costume. As opposed to the cutesie one I was gonna make, lol.

My version would have been a bit more organized and clean looking, but that's OK. DH and DS both loved it... Of course, you can't really see how it lit up, which was the "coolest" part of the costume.

Emmo, that's so cool that the buttons on the robot costume light up!
