The photos above are from the Vintage Halloween Flickr pool and can be found here. Now the kid in the pumpkin suit isn't me but I wore something very similiar for years that my mom had made out of a pillowcase. Being the crafty mom that she was she dyed it orange, used one of her permamarkers for the face, made me a green stem felt hat and even got me green tights.
At some point I rebelled and she stayed up all night making me a clown costume, without a pattern! She made me a one piece clownsuit and a hat, and the thing is though, is that she had to cut up a sheet and hand draw the polka dots on it because she didn't have any fabric to use! Is that not awesome! What a mom!
Halloween is on the rise here, too, and so I thought I would post a list of Halloween tutorials I have found online. There are costume ideas, masks to download, decorations and all kinds of other goodies here. Have a scary, creepy happy halloween!
