homemade halloween costumes: Homemade Halloween Costume - How To Make A Dinosaur Costume - 10/21/12 05:01 AM
Homemade Halloween Costume - How To Make A Dinosaur Costume My three year old grandson, Jack, wants to be a dinosaur for Halloween...not just any dinosaur, Jack wants to be a Spinosaurus. I looked online for ideas, but all I could find were cutesy dinosaurs... sew some triangles down the back of a hoodie and add a tail to the bottom. Jack doesn't want to be "cute"...

A couple of people online suggested using foam to create a dinosaur head...so I bought a 46 x 70 piece of (57 comments)

In my recent post on homemade Halloween costumes, I promised an update when my grandson Zack's costume was done. Thomas The Train was completed just in time for Zack's train-themed birthday party.
If you want to make your own Thomas The Train costume...I found my inspiration online from a blog called Mother Maker which has great step-by-step instructions. I made a few small changes, but for the most part followed their directions. (19 comments)
homemade halloween costumes: Halloween Coffins To DIE For - More Homemade Costumes - 10/21/11 11:44 AM

They were not that hard to make and lots of fun to wear! They got ruined spending a winter in a storage unit, otherwise I would still have them. I'm sure I will make more some day.
My daughter Jaime, my aunt, and I were the three "Stages of Death" Jaime was the recently deceased, my aunt the decaying corpse, and I was the skeletal remains.
Animal Costumes Whether for a child or an adult, animal costumes are really simple if you start with footy pj's or sweats and add the details....tail, ears, face makeup. The lion costume was made using footy pjs and adding a snap on belly, snap on tail, and paws made from felt. The mane is yarn sewn in rows on a knit cap. (the (24 comments)
