The time has come for us to start planning for the big Halloween Cosplay that I make each year. You can see my past years costumes here:

2015 Costumes

2016 Costumes

2017 Costumes

Each year I try to create costumes more epic than the one’s before. This year will be AWESOME!
As I create a series of patterns, each one released leading up to Halloween, they reveal clues to what Nate and I plan to wear!
Here is the Vertical Stripe Leg Warmers. The colors and design of this first piece are the clues to what the costume will be. Any guesses?

 

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make these leg warmers:

Tribal Barefoot Sandals

Tribal Barefoot Sandals

Walks on the beach, summer concerts in the park, or weddings on the sandy coast, are all the perfect occasions for barefoot sandals. I show how to use beads and feathers to adorn this pair of lace up tribal footwear that is all the rage! Spend your summer in style with this fun accessory!

Tribal Sandals

Although simple to create, these make an impressive fashion statement and give a great free-spirited vibe when you are looking for alternative footwear.

Tribal Sandals

These can be worn bare, or you can dress up a pair of sandals/shoes.

Tribal Sandals

You can chain an amount that you are comfortable with, but the more you chain, the higher you can wrap these up your leg!! You can make them simple and eliminate the beads and feather look. OR, you can add more embellishments like a crocheted flower!! The possibilities are endless.
