Daphne (Scooby Doo) little girls costume

Daphne (Scooby Doo) little girls costume

This was actually supposed to go up last year (!) but you know how the time around halloween gets around here!

My friend Cecily made this costume for her daughter…  She writes:

For my daughter, I didn’t like the Daphne costumes available for sale from the costume stores.  They are kind of skanky and not the cool retro Daphne from 1970!  She wanted to be the original Daphne for sure.

I used Simplicity: It’s So Easy, pattern #2825 (Dress and Backpack (didn’t make the backpack). … [ KEEP READING ]

BRAAAAINS! Conehead Zombie… PvZ costume

BRAAAAINS! Conehead Zombie... PvZ costume

The Cutest Little Conehead Zombie:

I promised you guys a second costume for The Boy’s halloween (you’ll remember he’s also doing Draco Malfoy, Death Eater), and here it is!

He’s a big fan of the Plants Vs. Zombies video game, and insisted on being a Conehead Zombie. We also considered buckethead, but we had the cone, so that sealed the deal.

This is easy to put together, and tons of fun.… [ KEEP READING ]

How to Make a kids Harry Potter robe out of Tshirts

How to Make a kids Harry Potter robe out of Tshirts

For The Boy’s Draco Malfoy costume, I had a brainstorm one night when he was using a XL men’s tshirt as a sleep shirt.  It was the perfect size for a wizard robe for a 6 year old.

This version is meant to be a Death Eater robe (I took the liberty of having it double as Draco’s school robe as well).  This could of course work for a wide variety of hooded robes, including Jedi robes!… [ KEEP READING ]

Halloween Costume: Draco Malfoy, The Littlest Death Eater!

Halloween Costume: Draco Malfoy, The Littlest Death Eater!

So, The Boy is somehow getting 2 halloween costumes this year.  He’s a big Harry Potter fan, so his first costume is Draco Malfoy, Death Eater. He’s only on book 6, but he has some Legos that have Draco Malfoy in Death Eater garb, so he’s latched on to this idea.

So, for his totally homemade/upcycled costume, we have:

  • A robe, made from several old t-shirts.
  • A Slytherin scarf, made from old sweatshirts.
