Handsome Devil

William chooses his Halloween costumes by how cool the weapon is.......

so this year he decided he liked the pitchfork (which already got broken)the best.

We're still trying to decide if we like the fire pants (which are p.j bottoms) or the black slacks (from Megan's wedding)


I used Simplicity 2571 for the cape and I just wish I would have taken the time to change my serger thread to red. Oh well. Instead of interfacing, I sewed some craft foam in the collar to make it stand up really good! I love that.
We used the free vest pattern from YCMT for the vest. The buttons on the vest are vintage from the 80's and came out of Mom's big bucket of buttons she gave us.














So what do you think? Fire or Black pants???

Very cool!!! I thought I like all fire the best but now I am leaning toward black. It makes the fact that the top is a vest pop out more and he looks more sophisticated and sinister!

I like both, but the plain black pants makes the vest colors stand out more....Too cute! I don't have any nieces or nephews close enough that I can do costumes for.....
