Handmade Pokemon Costumes

Halloween Costumes are not my favorite things to make.  But I made my kids some Pokemon Costumes and they are happy and excited to be able to wear them after Halloween too!  I tried to take some pictures yesterday before trick or treating and it was a bit crazy. So not super great pictures…

Here we have Fennekin, complete with a giant tail.

And here is Teddiursa, with a cute little tail and floppy ears.

I used the Summit Peak Hoodie from New Horizons Designs to make the shirts for both Pokemon costumes.  I color blocked the hood to mimic the Pokemon faces.  They were fantastic for layering over regular shirts for extra warmth.  I used some 92/8 Cotton Lycra from Nick of Time Textiles.  The fabric is a very stable knit with really strong recovery.  It’s thick and easy to sew with.  And I had it in my stash.

The pants for both Pokemon costumes are the Moto Maxx pants from Love Notions Patterns.  I like using this pattern for costumes and pajama bottoms because the pants are slim, but still loose.  Leggings just wouldn’t work for this, especially for my son!  And although I like using this pattern, I still don’t love the fit on Nut#2.  The pants look just fine on Nut#3 and Nut-Nut…not sure what about my daughter makes these pants problematic.

And that’s a Halloween wrap!  My oldest son had Dad make his knight costume and I didn’t get a picture.  But here’s another picture of the three costumes I make this year! Click here to see more about the Tooth Fairy in the picture!
