I kept breaking needles, and I may go get some fusing tape to secure it, but here is the cape for the Universe costume. Declan picked the fabric, which I roughly sewed to a cheapo vampire cape, then added spacey sponge stamps to the collar.
We also have some shimmery purple-green stuff that he keeps throwing over his head and calling the “fabric of space-time,” but I’m not sure what we’re going to do with it.
Phase one has since been embellished with boy-directed-mom-painted planets and pinwheels on the back, as well as stamps up and down each arm. Giga has located sparkly hair and makeup stuff, and I may make a string of glow in the dark stars for a necklace.
We’re closing in on the complete look…!

Very nice! I wish I was that creative and able to sew. Maybe one day…
Lovely costume. You are much better organised than I am – our Halloween prep has not started yet. To be honest, I’m putting it off – all that sewing, dangerous pumpkin carving and witch impersonations (actually, I find that bit the easiest!) don’t half take it out of you.
I arrived here via Planet cre8buzz – tried leaving a comment there too – but to no avail.
