Tangled

Tangled

This was a fun and challenging project! My daughter is Rapunzel, my husband is the infamous Flynn Rider, and I am the evil Mother Gothel. Our two oldest sons are the thugs, the Stabberton Brothers.


My youngest is the chameleon, Pascal. The hardest and most time consuming costume to create was Rapunzel's dress, I used at least three different patterns. Flynn Rider's vest was a close second with all of the detail.

All the costumes are handmade using various fabrics and patterns. The dresses are made from satin and organza, the vests and boot covers are made from fake leather and denim. Pascal was made from velvet and fleece.

The wigs and sideburns were purchased from an online wig company. We braided Rapunzel's and adorned it with fake flowers. The belts and satchel were purchased at a thrift store. Sword and dagger were purchased online.

Wonderland Red Queen (Star) and Mad Hatter (JR)

by Maribel Barrueta
(McAllen, TX)



I made the Red Queen dress and then added the details using dollar jewelry. Her scepter was my sister in law's wand from prom. I added a red heart in the center. Her crown was made from poster board and then spray painted gold.

I left it on top of the car's dashboard pressed against the window so the top could curve. Then added chains from fake jewelry and red jewels. Her hair I parted in two pony tails. I teased it and fixed it to form two balls. Then I spray painted red and placed the crown in the center using bobby pins.

Her makeup was lightest foundation and powder. I covered her whole face including her eyebrows which I then painted a bit higher. She had blue eyeshadow and formed a heart on her lips.

Also made her a mole by cheek. The Mad Hatter hat was also made from poster board. I found a dress at the thrift store which I used to cover the hat. Then added the different color patch from another cloth. I used the wire from a witch's hat to make the rim from hat and sewed it. I added the peacock feather and needles inside the ribbon.

The ribbon I made from a cloth as a scarf and then tied it around hat. The 10/6 card I made from poster board and burned from the edges. His coat was bought at a thrift store and I added the lace and buttons. I also added two buttons on the outside to hand the thread belt.

The vest,pants,pink shirt,shoes and socks were also bought at a thrift. The pants were made pin striped by gluing tape and using cloth spray to pain them purple. I bought them a smaller size so they could be capri and made them a bit bell bottom. His gloves were made by outlining his hand on a cloth and then just sewed them.

His belt was made by threading the spools and tying at the end. Then made a loop to hang from button previously sewed. His bow was made from cardboard and covered with cloth. I bought different colored ribbons and used a safety pin to put them from coat.

He also had different thimbles on and I made him a ring cushion. The pocket watch was bought as well as his eyebrows. For the hair I bought scrunchies that are made from hair at dollar store. I cut them open, teased the hair, and spray painted them orange.

I placed them on his hair with bobby pins. His face was painted using the same foundation and powder as Star and then made one eye pink and one purple. Also put pink under both eyes and pink lipstick.

Chucky's Facebook page

Zachary suffers from sensory disorder so wearing costumes is very hard for him. He wanted to be Chucky so bad but wanted to do something no one else has done. He wanted to create Chucky's facebook page.

We created the page based on if Chucky were to have his own page. He has his friends Jason and Freddie and even included some evil people he may know. We even had his wife and child involved. This picture is Zachary winning a trophy for a local parade where he won 1st place. It was the highlight of his year.

Vampiress in her coffin

by Georgia Dougherty
(Villas NJ)


Riley is 6 years old and is in the first grade. She wanted to be a scary vampire this year so we took it a step further and made her a walking coffin. She looked so great and she loved it but the Thursday before Halloween she fractured her wrist and the coffin was hard for her to hold up so with a few adjustments we made it work.

You will see a number on her coffin because she was in a parade and actually won second place. She was so thrilled especially since she had to walk in the parade with the broken arm.

"Mother Nature"

by Dawn
(Florida, USA)

a closer look at the makeup

Tatiana 6 yrs old.

My daughter requested a "Mother Nature" costume for Halloween this year. I went to work brainstorming how to execute something magical and fantastical.
I wanted it to really capture the presence of beauty and the spirit of nature.
I made my first shopping trip to the thrift store. I purchased some adult nightgowns (which were cut and sewn, and bordered with ribbon) to make the base of the cloak. I also purchased a used prom/evening gown. This was an adult size so it required so tailoring to fit.
Next I headed to the local craft store. Here I purchased many embellishments. I got some butterflies in different sizes and colors. Some of the more authentic looking flowers and vines. I got a bird and a nest. (She insisted she must have a bird) I also purchased little jewels from the scrap-booking section to add some color and dazzle to her face and make-up.
After cutting apart, placing, arranging, stitching on, hot gluing some, and bending and twisting, I created the head piece and then adorned her cloak.
In the end I did her make-up to look extra magical. Using false eyelash glue I fixed one fake leaf to her forehead, and outlined her eyes with the scrap-book jewels.
In the end, we were both very happy with all the hard work.
The costume took me about 12-15 hours of construction (after collecting all materials) which probably would have been a little shorter had I had more experience with the sewing machine.
To get a nice scenic photo worthy of Mother Nature herself, I simply sought out a green path of grass and sat her down, draping her cloak around her.

I had a lot of fun making it with my fiance's help, but even more fun seeing his face when he saw it for the first time. You should have seen him walking lol.. too cute. We will be making costumes every year from now on out : )

Coolest Ninjago Lego Minifigure Costume

by Janae
(Kansas City)

Ninjago Complete

Ninjago Complete

This is a hand made minifigure of my son's favorite Lego character. It is made mostly out of styrofoam. It took approx. 30 hours to make once I knew what I was doing.

Cutting, sizing and carving the styrofoam took quite some time. After several trial and errors, I ended up stacking then gluing the pieces into a 2 foot block then began carving the head out. This took the most time and was the messiest part.

The yellow part of the Lego head is made out of poster board and backed with a flexible screen (eyes) so he could see. The hands were also stacked pieces of styrofoam that I carved out. Because spray paint and styrofoam don't work well with each other, the pieces were covered with poster board (except the head and hands) attached with Craft Bond glossy side up then spray painted.

The head and hands were covered with several coats of Acrylic Gesso (kind of like Elmer's glue) then spray painted. The glossy side of the poster board and the Gesso give it the plastic look when spray painted.

My little cowboy!

by Kristina Smith
(Spartanburg, SC)


This is Jackson Smith. Jackson is 3 years old and when we went shopping for his costume, we could not find anything to fit him. Jacks is in between sizes. We told him that we would go somewhere else another day to see if we could find something that fit. He sadly sat down in the store and said that no costume would fit him so he guessed he would not be able to have Halloween this year. Well, this broke his daddy's heart, and he would not leave the store without something... So, we ended up with this Woody costume that is too short for him. He loves it! He posed for the camera very easily as Woody.

Thing 1 & 2

(DeRidder, LA, USA)

Thing 1(Natalee) and Thing 2 (Juliette), ages 3 and 15 months

Thing 1(Natalee) and Thing 2 (Juliette), ages 3 and 15 months

From about November 1st of last year, I knew I wanted my girls to be Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat In The Hat. So I had plenty of time to think about how to make the costumes!

The blue hair was the most painstaking of it all, I used blue crocheted caps and threaded tulle through just about every tiny hole in them. Each one probably took about 6 hours of straight work. Oh yea, and just in case the tutus weren’t a dead giveaway for the fact that these were girls, I made them each a blue & red flower clip to put in their “hair.”

Natalee wore her “hair” all night, although Juliette got tired of it at the end. All in all, I think I will make their costumes every year!!

Kids Backhoe Loader Digger costume

by Erica Martell
(West Hartford, CT)



My three year old son is obsessed with backhoe loaders, or diggers, and that's all he wanted to be for Halloween. With the help of his Aunt, an art teacher, we used a diaper box for the body, another box cut in two for a front loader and back loader, lots of black duck tape and hot glue, two cardboard tubes from dry cleaning hangers, yellow spray paint and black Sharpees.

For additional support for the back arm, I used a Swiffer duster handle stuck in to the back top of the box and duck taped to the top of the arm. This took many hours, a lot of materials and a lot of designing involved, but it paid off!

Peanut Butter and Jelly

These are my 4 year old triplets. This year, they are Peanut Butter & Jelly. Their favorite food? You guessed it, peanut butter & jelly. So I thought "Why not?". I thought of the idea, created it in my mind, bought all the stuff and brought it home for their Dad to create. :)

My 7 year old son, Adonis wanted to be Garfield for Halloween and he convinced his sister to be Nermal. So, my partner and I decided to join in with Odie and Arlene. It was a blast! Since Adonis is autistic, Halloween has always been problematic.

While he loves dress-up play with his sister and will gladly be a superhero, airline pilot or monster at home, he has always panicked when he needed to go out. But, he loved being Garfield. When we went out to a local mall to trick or treat we were asked to stand for photos many times.

He did it graciously, even though he was overheated. He even acknowledged people who called to him with a wave! It was our best Halloween ever! He was even calm about not winning the costume contest.

PJ the Wrecker

by Kimberly
(Brick NJ)


My son PJ (Peter) is wearing a homemade wrecking ball costume. He had asked to be a tractor & with a little tweaking we came up with this instead. It was made using cardboard boxes, hot glue, paint, a styrofoam ball & printed accents.

It was lightweight and easy for him to hold up, espescially with the handles added to the front. He had as much fun wearing the costume as it was helping me make it!

5 1/2 year old Alexander saw this costume in a book and decided that this was IT. We worked together to create the best costume ever!

Popeye the Sailor Man, Olive Oyl, and a Sailor Girl

Popeye, Olive Oyl, and a Sailor Girl

I pick out our Halloween costumes every year and this year I found Olive Oyl and a Sailor Girl for $5.00 each, so I thought it would be perfect. The costumes were practical for school, work, church, and trick or treating. My husband is Popeye the Sailor Man, I am Olive Oyl, and our four year old daughter is a Sailor Girl.
