Halloween 2015

This costume may always be my favorite. (Although, this year’s is becoming a very close second.)

Amelia Earhart costume, plane and all!!

I had so much fun designing this entire costume.

The jacket was a thrift store find. I took the patch on the right off and sewed on a solid color knit around the bands.

I made the aviator cap, the goggles, pants, a scarf, and boots. (The fabulous boots pattern is from here.)

I was especially particular how I wanted to design the plane. I really wanted to model it after Earhart’s red Lockheed Vega plane.

Boxes, red duct tape, a wagon, red paint, and my little helper.

I used my Cricut Explorer to cut the letters and decals. (I LOVE this  machine. I have many Cricut projects I need to share.)

The propeller was a bit of a challenge. I didn’t take in consideration the need to navigate the wagon with the handle. I had to make several adjustments and ended up making it so the propeller could be taken off if needed.

Deciding on a costume for this year was tough after this costume. So, I went through our favorite books……
