Halloween Giveaway: Win Non-Toxic Face Paint Pencils

These top quality wood-encased pencils require no water, have undergone rigorous safety testing and are both lead-free and paraben-free.

My favorite costume was from a group theme friends and I did several years ago - the Smurfs! We had papa smurf, Gargamel, Smurfette (Me!) and various others!

The shower scene from The Birds. My friend used a rolling metal frame with a curtain that she stood inside of. She dressed in a towel and shower cap, and had a black cutout of a knife attached to the curtain.

My favorite homemade halloween costume of all time was the beast from Beauty and the Beast. I was in my late teens and my mom was looking for ideas for Disney couples' costumes for friends. I suggested Beauty and the Beast and when she said it couldn't be done I took that as a challenge. I ended up going to a Halloween party dressed as the Beast complete with furry feet and giant paper-mache head and was the only one in costume :) I still have my beast head.

What is your favourite homemade costume of all time?

My favorite homemade costume was one I made last year for my then 1 year old. I made him a star trek costume from scratch including a lovingly and painstakingly cut star trek badge made from paper and bike reflector stickers. I was really proud of the results and it was sun to have people recognize who he was!

My favourite costume is one that all 4 of my kids have worn for their first costume. They wear back pants and turtle neck. We have a spider eyes hat and I made 4 "extra" legs so that they have 8 "legs" in total. the extra legs are long pipe cleaners with pompom ends and fit on with black elastic like a little backpack. It works so well for crawling babies.

My daughter LOVES pigs, has since she was a toddler so when she was three I made her a pig suit - now you can not just go and get a pig pattern so I found a nice fat pumpkin pattern and got pink matterial, made a tail nice and curly of course and then with the hat I made ears instead of the top it had - it was perfect .She is almost 7 (and is tiny) and still wears it every halloween - and the best part, she also wears it at our Unitarian Christmas pagent each Christmas as well -not to mention at all other times of the year! This is the best worn costum ever LOL. Good thing I double sticked those seems!!

My favourtie costume was one I made for my daughter when she was 4. She went to school as Wall-E. Pretty simple really, spray painted a box yellow and cut holes for her arms and head. Glued together some recycled cereal boxes for the eyes, and hand/arms and tacked them to a pair of gloves and hat. She loved it! I think my son will use it again this year!

michelle said...

My favourite costume was when I went as Arwin from lord of the rings. Ears and all... my husband was a ring wraith and when we saw pictures of us dancing together we looked hilarious!

Eva Y said...

I saw someone in an Optimus Prime costume!

One of the favourites was the Vampire for my oldest son Steven. He was in grade 3, I made the vest tie pants and the huge black cape with the red lining. That cape was played with for years and is still here. Steven is now 27 and the kids still talk about playing with it and the other that I made over the years.

My favourite costume is a tie between when I was a vegetarian vampire, all in tie-dye, who sucked the juice from fruit and vegetables and a poeTree with a corrugated cardboard trunk and my arms stuck out through holes like branches and covered in poetry terms written on leaves.

My favourite costume of all time was from my husband's childhood pictures. His dad helped him make a robot costume from an old computer, box, duct tape and dryer host and of course tinfoil.

Those are impressive. The best ones are the ones where the shape of the hand or the skin texture works for the animal (like the elephant and giraffe). The painting of a cat on the hand seems a bit pointless.
