  2. My favorite costume was when my mom sewed me a green m&m costume in 2nd grade. I felt pretty special that my costume was homemade and not bought from the store! :)

  5. My favorite was when I made my whole family matching "Incredibles" T-shirts. We had the perfect number of people in our family to pull it off that year. :o) Good memory.

  6. My favorite was when I dressed my 10 year old daughter in a throw-away (disposable) yellow hospital gown, threw a surgical cap on her, and faded her freckles with foundation and drew big circles under her eyes. She wore a surgical mask (the kids that you see folks wearing during flu scares). What was she? She was "Contagious"! (When folks asked what she was, she would moan, and stagger and say "I'm contagious!" LoL - this was swine flu scare last year. Hehe) It was free, because I use these materials at the place I worked at the time, and they said I could take them. If I had paid, it might have cost me $5 total. Awesome costume, so much fun! Everyone loved it! Hehe! - Jody Edwards

  8. My son had a fabulous pumpkin costume when he was around 8 (ten years ago so it doesn't fit him now!)
    It looked really great with his red hair

  11. My favorite costume was the bunny costume I made for my oldest son--so totally adorable. He wore it for two years, and my other two sons wore it as well, so well worth the time making it! They still remember that outfit and they're 32, 30 and 26 now!!

  16. my favorite costume was one of Frodo (Lord of the Rings) I made for my son when he was 4. Complete with the one ring, Elvish cape and hobbit feat (which I sewed fake hair into). I LOVE that costume!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favorite costume was a robot costume that I put together my self in junior high. I had a set of flashing lights that ran in a circle when I hit the switch. It was a science project kit from Radio Shack. This was a few years ago when something like that was not readily available.

    I loved pushing the button in my pocket and making the lights go -I had placed them in the head of the costume so they were above my forehead.

  18. I found a beautiful vintage prom dress (pale blue with sparkles and beading) for $10 at the thrift store. Then I hit the grocery store, bought myself a bag of green peas. TA-DAH! The princess and the pea!! I love dumb puns. Yes, I handed out peas all night along with the candy.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

We work with a company that helps other companies get incorporated in our state, helps smaller companies get started, and does other company service operations. We decided to all dress up as monsters and say "we heard about this monster´s inc and we´d like to get in on that deal" :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. My favorite costume was Raggedy Ann that a lady in our church made for me about 18 yrs ago. I still have it today. As a matter of fact, I'm trying to get my daughter to wear it this year for Halloween. It still looks brand new. But, of course, she won't have anything to do with it. That's life. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. My favorite was the monkey (daughter) and organ grinder (son)costumes I made for my daughters first Halloween (by the way she will be 25 next month!).

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm just not into Halloween. BUT, once when I was required to dress up, I went as Martha Stewart=made a huge double-sided recipe card (it was poster boards, hinged at the shoulders and draped down over my clothes) and I told everyone that I was a "good thing".

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like cute costumes, things that are not scary for other children. I think my favorite was a pumpkin - since I love them, you can't go wrong there...mind you they do nothing for your figure, but they's so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  28. When my twins were 18 mos old, one of them came across a duck costume in a local drugstore and went crazy over it. He was absolutely thrilled every time he got to wear it. He took his role seriously and quacked and flapped his wings whenever anyone commented on his costume. The padded butt make him look like he really waddled when he walked. Too cute... such fun memories!

    ReplyDelete
  29. What a perfectly scary vampire! My favorite Halloween costume would have to be the aquarium I made for my son when he was ten. I covered a cardboard box in felt, added silver lame piping to the edges, glued fish and plants all over it and then, to top it all off, I made a 3D shark coming out of the tank (complete with broken "glass") with a hole in its mouth. That is where my son's hand came out to get candy. Everyone loved it, especially my son. :) That was the same year that my other son was a scarecrow and my daughter was an acorn. I loved all of their costumes. Now I have a new granddaughter to sew costumes for. Good thing because I miss making them!

    ReplyDelete
  30. One year I was a hershey's kiss--silver lame, complete with the "hersheys kiss" tear strip atop the head and a triangular bodice so big I could barely get my arms out of it. Oh man, what was I thinking? And I wore it in public!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think the best Halloween costume would have to be my son's that his daddy made for him this year!!! NO, I am not bias or anything because he is my hubby and all--but hey this costume is cute!!! You should go see it...http://joyineverythingthruhim.blogspot.com/2010/10/thank-yous.html:)

  32. My favorite costume was the year I sewed the Flinstones for my son and his friends across the street. DS was Fred. Sarah was Wilma. John was Barney. It was so much fun! DS actually wore out his first costume before Halloween. I had to make him a second. Happy Halloween!

  35. My favorite Halloween costume was the year I dressed up as a laundry basket. Simple, yet innovative. I took one of my mother's square laundry baskets, but a whole in the middle large enough for my midsection. Slipped it over my mead resting on my hips and filled it with clothes. Perfection, everywhere I went people commented on the originality!

    ReplyDelete

  37. When I was young I dressed up like a bag lady and I scared our dog. I thought I was a goner.

  38. My favorite costume ever - and it would be especially appropriate this year - was made by a friend of mine. He took large trash bags, the black-green ones, and cut them into long strips, attached them to another bag which he put over himself, and went as an oil slick! He even managed to put a funnel on his head with strips oozing down over it. It was fabulous!

  46. My favorite costume was wearing my dad's hunting overalls and being a deer hunter. Not because it was a cool costume, but because it is the first year I remember being warm while trick or treating :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. My favorite costumes for Halloween were Vampire costumes! We dressed my son in a white shirt & black pants, made a cape out of some black fabric I had, and did his makeup. What makes it my favorite is that we also dressed up my son's stuffed mouse as a Vampire, with teeth & a cape & everything.

  50. I love dressing up! One year I made a cat suit with the thick heavy "fur" material. It turned out great! Back then I was waiting tables at a restaurant and they allowed us to dress up. It was fun for a while, but got hot quickly!! Luckily I wore black leotards underneath and was able to change to a black cat instead. Ha!

  55. The costume is about 20 years old now. For my daughter's 2nd Halloween, I made her a costume. She was an ear of corn. It turned out great and we got so many compliments. About 10 years ago my brother's friend's little girl wore it in a costume contest. I think she even won a prize.

  97. My favorite Halloween costume is my oldest son's first one. We swaddled him in a thick receiving blanket, pinned some wings on his back and put a round of elastic on his head, with purple painted styrofoam balls. He was the cutest dragonfly ever!

    Although, a couple years ago, he was a bat, and we made the wings out of a cheap black umbrella. That was pretty awesome too!

  130. Hmmm my favorite Halloween costume was last year when my husband and I dressed up as punks. I had pink hair and since he had grown his hair out for a long time, we cut it into a mohawk. It was awesome!

  131. My favorite Halloween costume was when I was in 1st grade and my brother was in 2nd grade, and my mother made us Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy outfits. We were so cute!

  134. This year I must go with...Star Trek costume... because that is what my daughter is wearing! We have yet to decide...original or Next Generation. I will probably choose, as I am the one who is doing the sewing!

  135. I had a dog costume. I was about 4 or 5. I cried when I couldn't wear it anymore. I didn't even want my little sister to wear it. It was mine!

  138. My favorite costume was a dinosaur outfit my mom made for me when I was 3... I still remember hating the grease paint she put on may face, but loving the costume so much I wore it again the next year! She was disappointed that she didn't get to make a new one, but i was a happy roaring dino girl two years in a row.

  140. Very scarry! My favorite outfit was in 3rd grade - I was a gypsy. And looking back at the pictures, I still think it was my bast costume! We raided my crazy great aunt's closet and it turned out great!

  141. My favorite costume has got to be the one I wore the night I met my husband: girls gone wild caught on video girl. I wore a nude colored top with a cardboard censor sign over my chest, a pulled up top over that and Mardi Gras beads with a skirt and heals. I landed a great man that night too. Happy Halloween!

  142. My favorite Halloween was when our family dressed up. My husband was the big bad wolf and my two sons and I dressed as the three little pigs. It was very fun and costumes were easy! Thanks for the giveaway chance.

  143. Of all the costumes I made for my kids (3 of them) my favorite was the Kermit the frog I made for my youngest when he was five. He was so cute, and won a prize in the Halloween Parade for his Kermit performance. But the best thing was last year when he donned green pants and t-shirt, and wore the slip on feet, gloves and headpiece from his original costume for a party... he's 26 years old!!!

  144. I got to make a white Power Ranger costume. It was the closest I got to making a Cinderella dress. It was white jersey with gold lame.

  147. When I was almost a teen, I dressed as a decrepit old woman. The fortune teller at the party told me that I would "get old before your time." It's unfortunate but that phrase stuck with me for years and years.

  152. That's a pretty cute looking Edward Cullen!
    One year I dressed up as Pippi Longstocking. I used a wire hanger to make my hair stick straight out of the sides of my head.

  153. I had a "I Dream of Jeannie" kick when I was little and so my mom made me a genie costume. It was pretty flashy and had way more belly showing than I would ever dare to show now!
