  4. My all time favorite quilt costume as a kid was a princess because I got to wear make-up! As an adult looking back at my costumes, my favorite is when I was three years old and my parents dressed me up as my Daddy in one of his shirts and ties. You can tell from the pictures I was thrilled to be my Daddy and as an adult, I can't think of a better man to want to be like!

  29. I use to make pjs, nightgowns, or clothing to use as the base of the costumes. One of my favorite was a black velour pair of pants and hooded jacket. After our daughter put them on, she laid on the floor, and my husband and an International student applied tape to look like a skeleton. The fun part was the giggles as they put on the tape. One year I made velour nightgowns and drew out butterfly wings on cardboard. The girls chose their own colors for the gowns and painted their own wings. We stapled elastic to the cardboard so they could wear the wings. They were huge, and the girls kept running into mailboxes with them as the trick-or-treated. All bring back such good memories, and after halloween they had wearable clothing. Nancy A: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

  81. My all time favorite costume was the year I dressed up as a witch. First off, there was no black fabric to be found, so my mom dyed an old sheet with Black Rit Dye. It was a mess but wowie, it was black. Then we made a black witch gown and I made my hair all scraggly, and made some of my teeth black with wax or something.... Thinking about this. I do not recall the entire costume anymore Gosh, There were some funny costumes back in the day....

    ReplyDelete
  82. My favorite was a couples' costume, with me as a Christmas tree and my husband as a present. It was created out of necessity, when we went to KMart on Halloween and there were few costumes left, but the Christmas stuff was already in stock right next to the Halloween section.

    ReplyDelete
  83. My favorite halloween costume is one my best friend from grade school created. She and her Mom inflated a bunch of purple balloons and glued them to a purple sweatshirt. Then, they took a clear plastic garbage bag and cut holes for her arms & head. She went as a bunch of grapes! It was the cutest thing, and she won top prize in our elementary school's costume contest.
