Halloween Costumes Part 2: Adventure Time

So it's another quick post this week. We haven't had time to get some new stuff up. So we're showing off more Halloween costumes. This time it's my sisters' costumes. They were Finn and Jake from Adventure Time! 

It's Adventure Time!!! The only thing I did for the Finn costume was make the hat and the sword. If I get the time later I think I'll make and share the pattern for the Finn hat.
This Jake costume was one giant onesie like the ones that little babies wear. I had to make my own pattern for this and let's just say it wasn't the easiest thing I've ever made. But the end results was definitely worth it.

Sorry it isn't much of a post this week. As we've been promising we'll have fun holiday stuff up soon! ♥

Hello Kitty Nail Art

Ai did our nails for Halloween and we wanted to make a separate post to show all the work she put into them! She is so amazing at doing nails! I just love all the designs she comes up with. ^_^ 

Ai did the Hello Kitty nerd themed nails for herself. The red bows are made from polymer clay. We're actually gonna try to make clay canes sometime in the future! 

These were the nails Ai did for me! Hello Kitty, rainbows, and some fruits!

So it was just a quick post this week. We've got a busy holiday season ahead of us and have a long list of projects and gift ideas to get through! We hope everyone has a fun time crafting during the holidays! ♥

Halloween Costumes 2011: Hello Kitty!

So I know that this is a few days late but here are our Halloween costumes from this year! 

You finally get to see what we look like! We were Hello Kitty and her twin sister Mimmy! We made all the accessories for this costume (the furry boot covers, gloves, headbands and glasses). Everything else was either stuff we had or bought. 

We bought some plain thick black headbands from Wal-Mart and I attached furry white ears to them. I made the ears from some really plush white fabric and stuffed them with poly fill. Then I made giant bows out of red and yellow plush fabric and also stuffed them with poly fill. 

This is the front side of our gloves. They're made from the same material as the bows and ears. They are finger less because gloves with fingers are really hard to make.

Here's the back of the gloves. 

Here's one furry boot cover. 

These were a really lucky find! We found these randomly while walking around ROSS! They're super cute, comfy, and something we can use again and again. 

And these were the glasses we made and showed you two week's ago here

Here have one more random photo of us. (I cut the other people out to protect their identities!) 

So that's all for now folks! We hope that everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Next week I'll post my sisters' costumes! They were Finn and Jake from Adventure Time. We're looking forward to next year since we already have an idea for our costumes! ♥
