Today I'm letting out a giant sigh of relief (or maybe exhaustion) because all the Halloween costumes are made and all my "big" projects are finished. Woo-hoo!
Last week was the end stretch of the craziness and one of my last projects was putting together this Frodo costume. Here's a little break down of how I made/assembled this costume.
Pants - $3 at the thrift store - hemmed them to make them hobbit length
Vest - $2 thrift store find
Cloak - $10 of fabric to sew the cloak. This could have been cheaper if I used felt but instead I went with a faux suede fabric. I used this tutorial to sew the cloak, click here.
White shirt - free via our closet
Ring - free - part of the the LOTR Risk Game
Pin for Cloak - free - I used a lizard pin I had. I know it's not the elvish leaf pin but it looked like something you would find in Middle-earth.
Last week I mentioned that I was prepping a giant Candy Land game for our school carnival. I decided to dress up as gingerbread woman to go with the Candy Land theme. I found the idea for this costume via Living Lucurto. Details for making the costume can be found on the Chocolate Cake Moments blog.
Sadly, this is the only picture I have of the Candy Land game. I was so busy getting everything ready that I neglected to take a picture. You can see a little bit of the chalk game board in the background along with the giant lollipops.
Okay, that's all I've got. How about you? What are you doing for Halloween? Did you make your costume? Please share.
