**For last year's post on previous costumes I have made, go (HERE)**
This year, only one of my boys wanted me to make his costume. Which is nice in that I don't get totally burned out on costumes by the time Halloween rolls around and it is actually time to wear them!
My son decided to go classic this year and be a ghost. I paid .99 for a basic Simplicity kids costume pattern for the robe and hood, but as usual, didn't bother to follow the instructions for assembly at all. Haha!
I made it out of bleached muslin and some Halloween "fabric" cheesecloth that I got dirt cheap during a big sale at Joann's. So, all in all, it was a fast, cheap and easy job...and I LOVE it! I think it turned out great.
My son loved it too, and literally looked like a spooky white spectre floating through the parking lot of our church's Trunk-or-Treat. He rocked that ghost costume! Which, of course, makes every effort of making homemade Halloween costumes worth every stitch.
