A little sneak peek…..and some fun costume ideas!

Hey guys! I have been in a costume tornado this month and I kinda love it! However, this week turned into a crazy one and the “How To Train Your Dragon” costume I’ve been working on (and was planning on posting this week) isn’t quite ready. But let me tell you, it’s turning out SO fun! I have pictures pulled up on my computer of different views of the actual character I’m making and each time I add any of the components, I freak out a little! Yes…… I get a little nerdy when it comes to costumes but my gosh, I love it when things actually WORK! And Connor?…..well, let’s just say he is one excited kid!

And because I can’t help it, here’s a little peek of the character I’m making…..any ideas? (Haha… if it’s not obvious! ;) )


This costume has a lot of metal and leather (well, fake leather in my case)…..and is way out of my norm. But I love it! So, next week for sure!


In the meantime—–

maybe How To Train Your Dragon isn’t your thing…..maybe there’s another Disney character you’re dying to make. Here’s a whole collection of Disney Costume Tutorials……HERE.



Or maybe you’re not into Disney and would prefer making something for you or your kids (or kids you know) that is a little more unique. And slightly hilarious! Check out these Clever And Unique Costume Ideas HERE.



So many fun ideas. Hope your costume making is going well!

We’ll talk next week!
