This is our 9th year of dressing up in a family "theme" for our Halloween costumes. This year's theme is Outer Space.
Once again, Felicia deserves all the credit for sewing some difficult costumes. My astronaut jumpsuit was a faux white "pleather" and the girls had sequin material that required Felicia to go really slowly when sewing. Numerous times she had to deal with broken thread and needles. As always, I am proud of the final results. Take a look at our costumes for this year and years past
Where did you find the huge cylinder for the rocket? Because I have a Church camp that is outer space themed and I wanted to make that. It is such a great idea. And did it cost a lot to make that? because I kind of am on a low budget.ReplyDelete
The tube was completely constructed. I started with wooden embrodery hoops and connected them with a few vertical slats. The outside was covered in white posterboard and painted. The nose cone was made from various size funnels and the tail fins are just cardboard. I constructed the rocket in two parts so it is easier to get in and out of the costume. If you click through the links you'll see a picture with the rocket in two parts. The cost wasn't exhorbitant, but it does take time to create.ReplyDelete
Wow-you guys are really cool! We did the Wizard of Oz theme last year, but lacked enough family members to have the Wicked Witch. I'm thinking that a space theme is in the cards for this year's Halloween extravaganza. We already have an astronaut costume on hand.ReplyDelete
