Halloween Costume Fun


As a little precursor to my next story, I made a few halloween costumes using the patterns from a CC Magazine. I decided to throw together some instructions as the ones in the magazine are poor and, though, fairly obvious I thought I'd shed some light on my costume making adventure. I also thought my instagram followers might like the tutorial.

Your costumes are adorable! You gave me the idea to try and make a sylvanian santa outfit. If the result is good enough, l'll post a christmas picture of it!

Thank you for the tutorial! You make everything look so simple! I can't figure out just by looking at the final photo so this is really helpful!

Re: Halloween Costume Fun


These are so adorable, you are truly talented in many areas. emoticon

For some reason your blog font has gone all funny though, hopefully that's just my browser being silly?

Re: Halloween Costume Fun


Thank you everyone for the lovely words, they honestly took about 45 minutes to make them all - the joys of fabric glue! The pumpkin is my favourite even though it's the most shabby looking of the 3 outfits emoticon

I'm glad these can help others out, when I started I thought... as I do with most tutorials in the Collectors Club magazines, that the instructions were rather lacking! Aha.

Mel: It looks fine to me but I do know on some browsers it can change the font (which is obviously not recognised by some browsers,) also sometimes if it doesn't load up properly the font goes weird, go figure with Google! Let me know if it remains this way, I have been thinking about changing my fonts to more universally recognised ones for sake of ease.

Re: Halloween Costume Fun


I was wondering which programme you use for your pictures? I love the way you did the overlays, and the pink tags are very nice. emoticon
