If you’re needing a beard for a costume, it’s super easy to make one out of yarn! Best of all, this beard is made so it’s a complete custom fit. 😀 All you need are two skeins of yarn and a couple hours.
This is a really old project, but one of my most well received! When I originally posted it on Instructables in 2009 I was making it to wear to the Where the Wild Things Are movie opening night. Since then, loads of people have made it and shared photos – it’s definitely well tested!
Look at all those awesome folks! And that’s just a few of the ones that have shared photos. I hope I’ll see more of them after this Halloween! 😀
A couple of Halloweens ago I decided I want to be a khajiit and set about trying to figure out how to make a set of ears and a nice tail. The costume still hasn’t come together fully (I’ve got a set of armor I need to finish!) but I am really proud of these pieces, especially the ears! I also documented the process of making them, so I hope it’s helpful for other costumes as well!
Seeing TMNT on the big screen again got me inspired to make some nice superhero masks. But I didn’t stop there – I also decided to post a superhero mask pattern and a tutorial so you guys can have one too. 😀
Can you guess which of the TMNT is my favorite? ^^^ *cough* ^^^
Here’s a super easy last minute costume: the voodoo doll! And you can probably do it with things you’ve got around your house. 😀
