DIY Halloween - Comic Con 2015


 If my husband was in this, it would be a great Christmas card don't you think?


Life isn't all fashion for me. I am a mom of 2 boys…soon to be 3 hence the baby bump and my sewing life can get pretty interesting. This year the boys wanted to be Friday Night at Freddy's characters, a "horror video game where the player must act as a night security guard, defending themselves from the malfunctioning animatronic animal characters by tracking their movement through the facility using security cameras." The game is pretty popular amongst the school students here, but such costumes don't exist. Therefore, I did what most normal moms would do and made them… ;)

Now as much as I'd love to wear my Carrie Bradshaw costume every year, being 7 months pregnant and a mom of boys this doesn't work well. You learn that once your kids are school aged it's about dressing up for them and not the "sexy animal costumes" anymore. With the baby bump  large at this point I decided a pokeball would be the perfect costume, adding a pocket for stuffed Pikachu to poke in and out. Pokemon is still a hit amongst the kids even though I remember it when I was young. 

 Pokeball baby bump. I used felt and added an interior pocket for stuffed pikachu to come in and out.
I even DIYed the pikachu stuffed toy. 
 Foxy and Bonnie from Five Nights at Freddy's. We made the costumes head to toe using wire hangers for the ears.  Even pulled off the masks which were felt and new shoe inserts…
The scariest costumes I've ever seen…or made.

  1. What a cute idea! If the boys were pokemons that you had to catch it would be perfect! :D

  2. I love that idea…Too bad they're all "grown up" now and want to be the "scariest" costumes around. I think they succeeded...
