October is Costume Month….any requests??

I have been waiting for months for October to come.  MONTHS!!!  I usually wait until October to start making costumes for Halloween because I just can’t bring myself to start before then.  Kinda like decorating for Christmas…..I have to wait until Thanksgiving is over.  I just have to.  Halloween costumes are the same way.  I just have to wait until October begins.  And guess whaaaaaaat?!!  October starts next week!!  I know, I’m still a big ol’ kid.  But I LOVE the magic of Halloween!

 

Here are a few costumes from years past.

 

The Little Red Riding Hood crew from 2012.

1 red riding hood

 

 

 

The Mary Poppins group from 2011.

2 mary poppins costumes

 

 

Cinderella and Prince Charming from 2010.

3prince charming 

4 cinderella

 

 

And Peter Pan and Tinker Bell from 2009.

6 peter pan  5 tinker bell

 

 

(Is picking a favorite costume the same as picking a favorite child?  Totally different, right??  Well, then, I’ll go ahead and tell you my favorite……the MARY POPPINS year!!  Ahhhhhh!  I absolutely LOVED figuring out, making, and then dressing my kiddos in those costumes!!!)

. . . . .

 

 

Anyway, I wanted to do something a little different and FUN this year.  Every year, I just make things for my own kids.  And the costumes are only helpful if they are what you’re dressing up your kids/grandkids/neighbors (or yourself) that particular year.  I guess they can always be saved for future years too…..but still, it’s hard to use for the current year.

 

SOOOOOOO……how about we turn October into COSTUME MONTH??!  And I’ll make several really simple costume ideas, all throughout the month.  (I’ll do a few other posts too…..but mostly costumes/dress-up’s).  The costumes will have to be pretty simple ideas or an idea that I can simplify, because, well, I only have so many hours in my day.  Ha!!  But, if there’s a particular costume that a whole bunch of you would like to make and it’s definitely more time consuming……….I’ll show you some tips, offer some ideas, and talk about supplies and such to tackle the project on your own.  You know….to help give you a good starting point. I’m completely excited just typing this out!  Because we’re going to have costumes coming out our ears over here.  And I’m thrilled!

Oh, and yeah, I’m going to still make my kids’ costumes too…..but I’m not sharing that yet.  (Mostly because we haven’t narrowed it down.  And maybe the list will change after I read some of your ideas.  HA!)

 

 

Okay, so here’s the deal.  Tell me all of your ideas.  ALL OF THEM!  Oh, and especially the simpler ones that you’d really like featured here during the month of October.  But don’t leave out the more complicated ones…..because I’ll pick a few of those to highlight, and talk you through making it on your own.  Or maybe simplifying it.  Sound fun??

 

Okay……leave a comment and share your ideas.  And then, later, when you’re doing the dishes or taking a shower (that’s when ideas come to me!) and you think of another idea, leave me another comment.  I don’t mind lots!

 

And, you know, maybe in a few days we’ll have a vote…..and then I’ll know which ones should be made first.  Yeah, let’s do that! :)

 

Talk to you soon! :)

    My daughter wants to be “Candy Land” this year. There is a candyland costume out there.. but it’s lacking in the cuteness department.. She loves frills and tutus so I really wanna girl something up for her.. I’d looooove for you to take the idea and run with it!!

    Maybe you have already done one of these and I missed it but I actually have been wanting to ask if you could make a post about 10 ideas for using scraps of fabric or something like that. :) I hate throwing away fabric because not only does it cost a ton but it’s still cute. But on the other hand I think sometimes my husband would prefer if I had about half the material I store. It would be fun to have some ideas on how to use it up.
    Totally not a halloween costume comment. Sorry.

    I would love to make my toddler a Raggedy Ann costume that includes a tutu…I have found tutorials on how to turn a beanie into a wig but I’m completely stuck on how to do the dress.

      Anonymous says:

      I actually did Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy for my first two kids one year. They were ADORABLE! I actually found an old commercial pattern and it had directions for cutting the yarn and making the wigs by sewing them to a tricot cap. It was lightweight and fit tight enough to not shift around on the head. My daughter was only 18 months at the time and she managed to keep the wig on despite hating hats. I added to the pattern by drafting some red and white leggings and black shoe covers.

    My friends and i wanted to perform “Peter Pan” earlier this year and i was so grateful when i found your tutorials for the Peter Pan costume and the Tinkerbell costume. Maybe you could teach us how to make Captain Hook’s hat and coat? I’m usually the one in charge of costumes (Cause I’m the only one who can sew) and i really am at my wit’s end.
    Oh, and I Googled “Tigerlily” costumes but i couldn’t find any tutorials either? Can you help? Thanks SOOO much in advance. Even a few small tips would be useful.

      Debra says:

      I made a Tiger Lily costume for my daughter last year and the most helpful thing was finding the suede cloth costume fabric at JoAnns. It already had pre-made fringe and decorative cut outs, and it was polyester and wouldn’t frat at the ends, so it didn’t need any hemming. It made the project so much quicker and looked great! Check out their costume fabrics and you’ll find it. :)

      Nicki says:

      My husband was Captain Hook last year! I used the Simplicity pattern for the coat from the Jack Sparrow-looking pirate – it’s number 4923. I just did it in a lightweight red fabric, and added gold trim, and it looked just like captain hook! Since it’s a costume pattern, it’s not lined at all, which means it comes together pretty quickly. We bought his hat at a party store (Boswell’s… don’t know if you have any near you. It’s the BEST place for great costume accessories).

    My daughter decided Rapunzel was a good idea. Turns out the bodice isn’t so bad, but tht princess cut on the skirt had me stumped! My son really wants to be the red angry bird. I need a great idea for a two year old boy, though! I wish I could get my kids to go for themes. That ended when my daughter turned four. Apparently we were already embarrassing!

        We did a minion last year. We did yellow tee, overalls, I made a Gru logo for the front of the overalls, and I found some steampunk goggles at target. I parted his hair in the middle like that one minion. It was hilarious. And it was totally comfortable too. The goggles made it though.

And just today she added Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Any of these would be fun costumes so maybe one will make your October list! Thanks for being such a great encouragement to a newbie seamstress!

    I love themed family costumes (at least while my kids are still young enough to think it’s cool!) and I LOVE LOVE LOVED your mary poppins!! this year we are either doing the roaring 20′s -flappers and gangstas or we might just all go as a different insects (butterfly, bee, ladybug, etc) totally random right?! :) would love to make a caterpillar costume for a toddler or a cute easy flapper dress. can’t wait to see what you do this year.

    British American says:

    I haven’t dared asked my kids if they have any ideas / requests yet. My daughter found her old super woman/girl costume from the thrift store and it still fits, so she will probably wear that. I picked up some really good Target clearance costumes last year, so that will probably work too.

    One thing I am interested in is a robot costume for my 2 year old. They have some cute ideas on pinterest. But I might just make him wear last year’s clearance!

    Last year I made cowgirl chaps for my daughter, thanks to pinterest. :)

    • 36.1

      my husband and son were robots a few years ago, I went to the $ store and got a lot of cheap metal/foil baking wear and electrical cords and used them to make costumes, think I spent $10 on the two costumes total…

    I’m so excited! I always do family costumes (including my husband and I!) and this year we’re doing the Wizard of Oz. Dorothy, scarecrow, wicked witch, Glinda, and my 1-year old as a Munchkin. :) I think I’ve got most of us figured out except for a scarecrow hat, I would love a tutorial for that! Another request would be for dragon and knight costumes. That’s what we almost did this year: knights, princesses and a little 1-year old dragon. It seemed more difficult to do though so I would love some ideas to do it next year!

      Anika says:

      I love to do family costumes too! We did the Wizard of Oz a couple years ago and I used a fisherman’s hat from a thrift store for my little scarecrow. I stitched fringed fabric around the inside of the brim to be the “straw” and I added a plaid fabric band and a fake leaf to the outside.

    Your costumes are always amazing! I have made my twin bus their costumes each year as well…but they haven’t been as cool as yours! This year I thought I was set on doing Super Heroes, but they have been loving playing the the kitchen set at daycare so now I am toying around with the idea of making them Chef or Baker costumes. I was kind of thinking aprons rather than the white buttoned up shirt.

    I’m making a penguin costume for my 6mo, and found your tutorial while looking for ideas, so thank you very much! I considered a Kirby costume (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirby_(character)) this year for my ever-hungry and non-discriminatory baby but couldn’t think of a way to make it safe and not look awful. I I think headgear can really make or break a Halloween costume, so I personally would love some tips there. I’m making a Milli costume, of Team Umizoomi, and am struggling with trying to make a hood – gathered, elastic, or using darts. I’ve seen some pictures of Pac-man costumes which make me chuckle and look like they could be really simple. One of my favorites has always been the family who chose “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” as their theme, and dressed up as caterpillar, leaves, and butterfly. That’s all I’ve got in terms of simple costumes – looking forward to this series!

    I am about halfway through making a Rapunzel dress for my daughter which has been tricky but is turning out pretty cute if you don’t look to closely at my wonky zipper seams. The bodice is almost done, but I was thinking about doing a panel skirt (is that what you call it?) since that is what it is in the movie and it would make it a bit easier to do the detail on the front. Also, I struggle with gathering large amounts of fabric so I like the idea of getting a full skirt without having to gather. Any tips on making a panel skirt would be appreciated. i think I can handle making Flynn/Eugene for my older son although I am not sure how to go about making convincing boots/shoe covers. I would love some ideas and instruction to make a Pascal chameleon costume for my youngest. I have some ideas of what I might try, but after the trial and error difficulty I have had with the dress so far, I would love some help from a more experienced and creative seamstress.

    My daughter is going to be the Dormouse in her school play this year, how about some Alice in Wonderland costumes? If I get very elaborate in her costume I’ll use it for Halloween, too. Alice always looks beautiful in a simple blue dress and ribbon in her hair, and then there are so many other characters to choose from: the caterpillar sitting on a mushroom, the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit, the Card soldiers, or the Queen of Hearts could be fun! And I LOVE your Mary Poppins costumes, completely wonderful! Last year she wanted to be Maximus from Rapunzel. Seriously???

    We need something that is really warm! It really ruins a super cute frilly princess dress to have 3 layers of sweats underneath because its only 40 degrees! All the Halloween costumes seem to be made for Florida or somewhere really warm. We live in Minnesota and I haven’t seen a Halloween in the past 4 years that hasn’t been freezing! I have 1 boy and 1 girl. To pack warm layers underneath nothing fits, and it ruins it to cover it up.

    I did a Hungry Catepillar for my crawling baby 2 years ago- i used a large t-shirt to make a one piece suit and colored yarn- I will send you the picture! It has lots of potential for the little crowd with fruit etc.. it was SO cute! but, I am sure you could fancy it up a bit =)

    My daughter will be a peacock, i have ordered the feathers from ebay. Making a silk dress with old left over fabric, its going to be a long dress more like a princess one with dark blueish green in bottom and light green in top. Then planning to attach the peacock feathers 50 of them to a tulle that i bought and attach that to a ribbon so it will wrap around her waist. Once halloween is over i will add some rhinestones to the top and belt area so she can use the dress for christmas or any other party.

    My 5 yr old twin girls want to be a skunk and a raccoon! And not the cute ones like the costumes we have looked at, but real looking ones! They have asked for a hat with animal ears on top and that is long on the sides like a scarf and has pockets on the ends (we have seen these around) and then furry cuffs and leg warmers. They want real looking tails. The best part, the skunk wants to be able to lift her tail and spray water (she doesn’t want to make her friends stinky *thank goodness*) and the raccoon wants her eyes to glow yellow (because you trick or treat at night and raccoons eyes glow yellow in the light at night). We live in Texas and it is usually warm on Halloween so I did convince them to wear pants and a t-shirt instead of a full fur costume, which was a huge concession for them. All fur would be more realistic but it would just be way too hot! Now I need to figure out how to engineer a lifting tail and spray as well as glowing eyes! Oy, these creative kids : )

    Despicable Me (Minions with one minion in a skirt)
    Avatar: The Last Airbender (Ang, Sokka and Katara)

Instead of starting a project from scratch though, my goal is to modify her existing flower girl dress by adding some colored fabric and embellishments (the dress is currently all white and plain with no embellishments).

    First time commenter, LOOOOOOOONG time follower! Love your stuff and love you, Ashley! My 5 year old is super into Magic Treehouse books and wants to be Morgan La Fey for Halloween. This means a robe, and white flowing hair, that’s all I know. You should see the cute pictures she draws to design it and I have NO IDEA how to make this one happen. We are thinking of doing a whole Camelot theme for all 5 of us, then the 3 year old can still be a princess.
    Other helpful and versatile tutorials would be: a hooded cape/cloak. It’s sort of a basic piece of a TON of great costumes. I about when cross-eyed trying to make two for my goldilocks girls last year (they both wanted to be Goldilocks, my husband, me and and the baby where the three bears).

There really arent a lot of great costumes out there for tiny babies, and since they’ll most likely be sleeping the whole costume is lost on them anyway.

    I don’t know if it’ll help, but here are a few I’ve made in the past few years:

    A (child) bride because my girl attended a wedding in the summer and wanted to be a “getting married person” for Halloween:

    https://gmsirmans365.shutterfly.com/lolmoments/57

    and the year before, she was a garden gnome (and, at her request, I was, too, though she looked much cuter as one) because she was in love with “Gnomeo and Juliet”:

    https://gmsirmans365.shutterfly.com/lolmoments/25

    She wants to be a cat this year, no Minnie Mouse, no, a cat! Ah, the indecisiveness of childhood. I’d love to see your take on any of those. A cat, Minnie Mouse, or the gnome would be pretty quick to whip up, I think. The bride was pretty detailed, but I’m sure it could be simplified into a couple of naptimes.

Long pants (no shortshort skirt here) made of blue sparkly material w/ gold buttons and trim. A sort of white spartkly tank top w/ a big blue collar and a large red bow, more gold buttons and trim. With a little blue and white cap of the same material. We have not figured out what the 3 yo brother is going to dress up as.

In fact, making my kids their own costumes was the reason I purchased a sewing machine.

This year my son wants to be the man with the yellow hat (from curious george) I’m all set on the shirt/pants/tie because those are really basic, but I’ve got to figure out a way to make an ACCURATE yellow hat. All the ones I’ve seen are very floppy, or the wrong shape etc. So maybe a post on wigs, hats, etc.

    I am cheap and am going to use my son’s fireman raincoat and rain boots to make him into a fireman this year. But I still need a fireman hat! :) And any other miscellaneous fireman equipment.

    My daughter wants to be a bat. I bought some fabric and a black hoodie to attach the wings and ears to. I’d love to see your spin on it!

    My daughter REALLY wants to be a ghost! After hours of scouring the internet and blog world I cannot find any cute ideas for how to execute a ghost costume. I don’t want to just do a sheet over the head because I know she won’t wear it for more than 5 minutes and, let’s be honest, it doesn’t allow for any creative fun! If you have any good ideas for a cute ghost costume, I would LOVE to hear them! Thanks

    My son is going to be a knight. I found a great costume, sword and shield, but he desperately wants a sheeth for his sword. I’d love to get an idea from you on how to make a sword sheeth. You are amazing, by the way. You are super human, really! :) I am amazed at your talent and grateful you so willingly share it with all of us. Thank you!!

    I’m desperate for a “pretty witch” dress!!! My 3 year old granddaughter is counting on me! I’m hoping for a black dress with purple, orange and bright green accents. I would love to find striped long socks or tights too! I am imagining a cross between Rapunzel and maybe Cinderella with more JAZZ added to it. Or an upbeat rendition of the Wicked a Witch of the West? Tulle or Organza or Netting at the hips and perhaps trailing under the arms/sleeves/wrists? Sparkle, satin, twirl, ribbons…. Gosh, am I asking too much?!? Lol!
