I realize it’s already November, but I’d still like to share the Halloween costumes that I helped some of my friends with!
Here you can see a picture of Genny dressed as Dirk Strider. As you probably remember, I made the skirt that she’s wearing out of a stretch knit, although the applique isn’t visible in this picture. I’m dressed as Jake English, another character from the webcomic Homestuck.
This is my friend Noah, who also dressed as Jake English this Halloween. I screenprinted both of our shirts in two colors, copying the design directly from the character’s t-shirt.
My friend Laurel wanted to be a Pokemon trainer from x and y, so she asked me to make her this hat. I made the hat based off of a pattern by Pinar Vardar on Ravelry. I had to change the entire base of the hat because I used a very different weight of yarn.
Thank you for reading!
Here we see my sister modeling a skirt I made for my friend Genny’s birthday. It’s a reversible knit skirt with an elastic waistband. It’s based off of the character Dirk Strider from the webcomic Homestuck. I put an applique of Dirk’s glasses on the orange side and and one of his hat on the black side. Genny is planning to cosplay as Dirk later on in the year, and hopefully she’ll allow me to post a picture of her complete costume on my site!
The applique on this skirt was difficult to attach because the threads wouldn’t catch during the stitching, and I’d take the skirt off the machine to find terrible seams. The issue might have been that I was trying to applique a knit to another knit. However, I was able to fix the applique in time for my friend’s birthday, and I am very pleased with the result!
