Halloween Happenings 2012

Halloween Happenings 2012!

It’s not just Garden Gnomes & Game of Thrones…

Can you believe Halloween is right around the corner?! I’m already scared ;) 

Craftzies Halloween Costumes-Quick Guide & Updates (details and more photos below)

Halloween Shipping: *All costumes in the states are being shipped out USPS Priority 2-3 day delivery. International shipping for Halloween orders is finished. You are free to order however I cannot guarantee that your packages will arrive in time for the holiday.

Pebbles & Bam Bam- custom orders are finished. I have a few left over as non-custom orders in the shop and may have a few more but what you see is what you get on those. I have a few custom orders still to be listed but other than a 0-3 month Bam Bam and a few extra Pebbles tunics kicking around the shop, they are sold out. Photos here though :)-

Mr & Mrs Potato Head-one of each were custom orders and I still have to list a custom Mrs. Potato Head as a custom order but other than that, these are no longer available for this Halloween.

Garden Gnome costumes-I still have about 8 adult male gnome costumes in the standard red hat/ black belt colors. Not all have been listed in the shop but they will soon. I also have about 8-9 female gnome costumes in the red/ polka dot apron style, some but not all are listed in the shop. Details and more photos here-http://www.craftzies.blogspot.com/2012/09/garden-gnome-halloween-costumes.html

*I do have larger sizes for the male & female gnome costumes as well so if you need a larger size you do not see in the shop, let me know, it is most likely finished and ready to ship I just need to add the listing to etsy for you.

Bride of Frankenstein Mummy Wrap Dresses-I have made two of these this year and I have at least two more that will be listed this week, neither of which are custom orders so if you want one, feel free to send along your size and I can whip one up for you :) Here are more photos and details to get wrapped up in... http://www.craftzies.blogspot.com/2011/09/diy-halloweencostumes-bride-of.html

Game of Thrones - I have one more blue and gold Princess Danni Dress coming up as a custom order, and I am hoping to make two more as non-custom orders so if you are interested, let me know :) I also have a few more costumes coming up so stay tuned, they will hopefully be spectacular!!! (yes, I am forever hopeful ;)  here are some photos and additioanl details while you wait... http://www.craftzies.blogspot.com/2012/10/game-of-thrones-costume-remake-making.html

A little over a month ago FAB Publishing printed the craft book Garden Gnomes and I am excited to have been a part of that project. If you have or are thinking of picking up that crafting book you will find the Craftzies instructions and pattern for the male and female Garden Gnome Costumes for both adults and children listed there ( http://www.craftypod.com/2012/06/06/introducing-indie-craft-books-from-fabulous-publishing/ / my blog post here: http://craftzies.blogspot.com/2012/07/woot-crafting-book-has-arrived-go-fab.html ).

Costumes in the shop this year:

Garden Gnome Costumes: I created these costumes a few years back when searching online for funny Halloween costumes and they have been a hit ever since. These are hilarious and my favorite Halloween costume so if you are looking for a funny costume this might be the one for you and yours. The hats and men's belt are made with felt, and the women's apron is made with a cotton polka dot fabric.  the standard colors being a red hat and a red and white polka dot apron for the girls and a red hat with white silky beard and black belt with yellow buckle for the guys. You can check out all of the details in this blog post: http://www.craftzies.blogspot.com/2012/09/garden-gnome-halloween-costumes.html

Here are a few images of the Garden Gnome Costumes
(Can you tell we were having fun being weirdos in our backyard? It was rather difficult to find images where we weren't laughing too hard. Our neighbors must think we're the strangest...)

Mummy Wrap Dress: This is another favorite costume of mine and one I made 2 years ago for a customer requesting a custom Bride of Frankenstein Dress. Details and additional photos here- (http://craftzies.blogspot.com/2011/09/diy-halloweencostumes-bride-of.html

Below are a few images of the Mummy Wrap Dress
(more can be seen in the link provided above)

Pebbles & Bam Bam: These were quite a hit last year and I just had to make a few more this year as well. Last year I listed the Pebbles costumes as sets, this year since I have a variety of different bottom colors/ styles I am going with the Pebbles Mix & Match and you can find the tops and bottoms listed separately in the shop and additional images and details here: http://www.craftzies.blogspot.com/2012/09/pebbles-mix-match.html
The prices is $17 for the green tunics and $8 for the bottoms, which equals $25 per set and each green tunic includes a bone hair clip accessory.

Here are a few images of the Pebbles & Bam Bam Costumes

The Bam Bam costumes are $25 for the baby/ toddler size sets and include a small round hair piece and a stuffed bat for play. The larger sizes are in some cases slightly higher in price but also include the accessories.

Holly GoLightly Sleeping Mask & Ear Plugs: Inspired by the sleeping costume Audrey Hepburn wears in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, this sleeping mask features a sleeping mask, ear plugs, and is an easy and fun costume that works for the holiday and also makes all your holidays to come dreamier…

Price for the mask is $25, price for the set is $32 including the ear plugs. Here is the listing to order your own mask: https://www.etsy.com/listing/102347897/breakfast-at-tiffanys-inspired-sleeping/Here is a link to order the set: https://www.etsy.com/listing/108012226/breakfast-at-tiffanys-inspired-sleeping/ Here is a link to the blog post, including more images: http://craftzies.blogspot.com/2012/06/inspired-by-holly-golightlys-sleeping.html )

Here are images of both the mask and ear plugs.

Renaissance/ Game of Thrones inspired costumes: I love the renaissance costumes and along with a variety of other costumes mentioned above, you will see plenty of designs for the Game of Thrones / Renaissance fans out there so keep your eyes peeled, crafting mischief is a’foot ;) Prices will vary as will the costume pieces for this grouping. You will however see a lot of dresses, capes & armor-plenty of outfits for boys, girls, women and men, as well as a bounty’s worth of accessories to help make your Game of Thrones costumes rule!

You are going to L-O-V-E the costumes for this section! (so excited!)

 Here are a few images of a cape I made a while back to give you an idea of some of the lovely items you will find in the shop ever so soon! I'm not planning on making white capes per say, but you never know...

the first dress from the Game of Thrones series this year...

I have one more of this dress planned as a custom order, and up to two more that I will have finished in time that are non-custom orders at this time. So if you want one, it's a possibility ;) More photos to come!

*Other fun Halloween spookiness...
(yeah, that’s right folks. Flying monkeys scare the living daylights out of me!!! Happy now?! lol…(cries)…

And then something new-

Isn't this to die for?! (and then live forever...)
