To get you into the swing of things, here are some previously made costumes that my grandsons loved.
This is Seth and Jack in 2010. Jack wanted to be Anakin Skywalker so I had to do an Internet search to know who it was and what he looked like. Turned out he was from Star Wars (Jack's favorite movie by far). Of course there was no pattern for Anakin Skywalker so I had to use bits and pieces from about 4 different patterns to come up with it. He loved it. I also made him a galaxy-themed trick or treat bag too. Seth was the cutest little Batman ever.

Jack and Seth love to play dress-up so the Halloween costumes were pretty much used year round.
Seth loved his Batman costume and wore it until he couldn't get into anymore. So last fall I made him a bigger one.
Same big smile! He loved it.
Okay time to get cracking on the costume making people! What will it be this year?
