Although Ichabod Crane is still in the sewing stages, I did get my http://www.fox.com/sleepy-hollow costume done. However, I cheated. Instead of making a 1770s set of stays, I used my Victorian era purchased corset. Instead of pleats in the skirt I gathered the skirts onto separate drawstrings. Instead of a square belt buckle, I used a belt I already owned.
I think I was fairly successful.
I answered the door to give out candy and a little girl thought I was a princess. Aww, naïve little girl. Katrina Crane is a witch! But it was flattering.
Athena can't stay away from the camera!
Hanging out with the Hitchhiking Ghost.
We had a great evening hanging with our kids.
I had a fun time recreating these costumes. It took a lot for me to let go of the lack of time to make a more faithful recreation of the TV show costumes. This was a learning experience in that area.
Hope you enjoyed these costume posts.
