These Crocheted Halloween Costumes Are So Goddamn Cool!

Halloween isn’t an international holiday, but in the places around the world where it is celebrated, most of us have had pretty similar experiences — the most common shared experience that truly binds us all together is, of course, homemade costumes.

IT'S COSTUME TIME!! 💀 Introducing SKELETOR!! Jack's pick this year and I am so excited my stomach hurts! He is fully freehanded, no pattern. Those eyes? They light up for an extra evil touch! Muahahaha! Want to see a video? Come to my page & see, it's so cool! What do you think? Happy 1st day of Halloween! 😘🎃 About 45 hours of freehand work for him ♡ All the facial details are top of head/forehead so chin down he is fulllll body scary; head up vision is clear! We live in Ohio so that coziness of crochet is always so welcome on brisk (sometimes snowy!) Halloweens! I adore doing this for my babies, thanks #skeletor #heman #costume #crochetcostume #instacrochet #crochetaddict #yarn #freehand #80skid #80smovies #halloween #halloween2018 #crochetverse #maker #diy #handmade #handmadeisbest #oneofakind #cosplay

We all grew up walking by Halloween storefronts or seeing advertisements that showcased the latest and greatest costumes of our favorite superheroes, villains, TV characters and movie characters, animals, or professions, and every single year most of our parents told us the same thing: “We can just make that costume!”


Not to discount all the hard work that parents put into their kids costumes, if I ever have kids I am absolutely doing the same thing because paying $70 for goddamn Harry Potter robes and a wand is insane, but as the kid it can feel like the biggest bummer of all time.

Check out this version of my crochet Serged Dream Coat Pattern as done by @s.crochet.designs ! Holy moly kamoli macaroni! She opted to work her top section and sleeves in one piece using the same number of rows. She HAND DREW those buttons! 🤯 The hood? She incorporated a pattern by @poiseandenvy for that. My fave part? Those green Squiggly worm bugs! Link to my Ravelry in bio for the coat pattern!! Head to @poiseandenvy for her oogie hoodie! . . . #oogieboogie #nightmarebeforechristmas #oogie #oogieboogiecostume #fairycoat #crochetcoat #jackskellington #handmade #yarnporn #crochetverse #crochetersofinstagram #instacrochet #crochetofinstagram #yarnaddict #crochetaddict #crochetoogieboogie #crochetcostume #halloween #halloweencostume #makersgonnamake

Some homemade costumes actually kick major ass though, way more than any store bought one. Like these costumes, which were entirely crocheted and are mind blowingly detailed.

They were crocheted by a RIDICULOUSLY talented woman named Stephanie Pokorny (previously).
