Halloween is basically just an excuse to do the following awesome things:
1) Actually buy candy for once and pretend it's ok to eat tons of it.
2) Get crafty and play dress up for a day.
And, in the advent that you're pregnant and too lazy to figure out something that you can dress up as (a pregnant Rose Tyler from Dr. Who? Yeah, still strange, even if your husband dresses up as the Doctor, and even if you're stuck-in-another-dimension-Rose who gets to end up with the human Doctor...) then it's an excuse to
3) Get crafty and make really sweet costumes for other people!
Aaron wanted to dress up as Kuzon-Aang (Aang from Avatar: The last Airbender when he's hiding out in the fire nation, dressed up in fire nation garb) for Halloween--here's a reference of what he looks like:
And this is what I came up with!
For the record, we bought the red long sleeve shirt at DI (and I cut the brown sleeves off another shirt from DI and then sewed them inside the vest--I'm really terrible at making sleeves) but the rest I sewed myself, without a pattern (yeah I'm hard-core...or just too lazy to find one...)
I must say, I'm pretty impressed with how it turned out! It's pretty much the coolest thing I've ever made :D
And Aaron pulls it off splendidly!
Thanks for having faith in me, buddy! This was fun :D
