This is a guest post I did for Crafting Con. Bringing it home for Halloween!
Hello! I am Stacy and I blog at Stylin’ Stacy. The costumes I tend to make these days are centered around cosplay characters. They serve dual purposes as my kids wear them to a convention in the spring and then Halloween in the fall. I usually have to add cloaks or some such to their fall wearing as Halloween here is rather chilly.
Here are a few of the costumes I have made and some links to more details on them.
Connor – Assassin’s Creed III
Wizard – Clash of Clans
Ciri and Geralt – The Witcher III
Then, here are some random Renaissance costumes I made for them:
These costumes take a lot of time, are expensive, but the kids feel absolutely awesome in them. I spend months working on these costumes, and just trying to figure out how to make the different pieces. There is nothing purchased on them, except their shoes. I make everything, even their weapons. There is nothing like going to a convention and having people stop them, compliment them and ask to take pictures of how awesome they are. I get a thrill, too, as their creator!
