Halloween costumes



In honor of Halloween week, I thought I would do my best to post a different costume (previously made) every day. These are from Halloweens Past although they may be for Halloween Future if needed cuz they are sitting in Costume boxes just waiting for that day. To start off, I designed this costume many years ago (gosh over 10 years ago) when we were making the adult costume party circuit. The challenge every year was to top the previous year and each year got more difficult to come up with ideas that hadn't been used. We were pirates, Scots (with kilts - those I didn't make - although I did make a kilt for my brother for Christmas one year - I'll have to find a pic of that), and dead people "Janis Joplin" and I forget who Stephen was. So as a couple costume we really wanted to do Morticia and Gomez so that was my goal. Unfortunately we couldn't find a striped suit to fit Stephen but this worked. Yes, I am trying to be sultry like Morticia - unfortunately it looks like I'm half asleep. This dress also happened to be the inspiration for my Morticia dress/top for the Addams Family challenge of Etsyrain. Although my dress is long and slinky and tight - just like Morticia, this little girl one is easy to move in and can be layered under for more warmth. Check back all this week for costumes I have made in previous years. You'll have to wait for next week to see the harpy my son will be....(not quite finished yet :))

what a great idea - to celebrate Halloween week! We're doing the same thing, but it's by eating all the candy BEFORE we get any trick-or-treaters... I think your photo tribute would've been better for my waist!

I love the idea of eating the candy before the kids arrive - mmmmmmmmmm. We don't get many kids so we are usually doing that after.

Heidi - I'm right there with you eating all our candy.

Cindy - I love the costume idea! Can't wait to check back to see all the others! You are awefully organized to have the pictures where you can find them!

I just happened to have some of them out to show Nicolas all the fun things we have worn over the years. We'll see how many I can find :)
