Does anyone have any plans for Halloween crafts? What about COSTUMES?! Does anyone here actually MAKE their OWN costume?! I'd be mega impressed. Do tell!

I'm going to be Luna Lovegood, and I'm making part of the costume! I have already made her Quibbler, it was really fun to make and even has pages full of cool theories, articles, and games from the Wizarding World! I am going to make her cork necklace soon to ward off Nargles, as well as her radish/dirigible plum earrings! laugh The cork necklace will probably be really easy.

The cloak is an edited simplicity cloak pattern. You start with pattern 5840 and use a tutorial to mak it accurate. It's actually incredibly movie accurate. You widen the sleeves, add a lining, shorten the robe length, lengthen the hood length, and remove the seam between the yoke and main robe length.  In all, the cloak is pretty heavy. I did most of the whipstitching. Im not sure exactly what kind of material it is made of. I think it may be twill.......... It is a really luxurious cloak. It looks exactly like the ones in the prisoner of azkaban movie. I love it so much.
