I had finally finished my younger son's Halloween costume Friday morning. His school was having their Halloween party on Friday, October 28, and I hated to know that he wouldn't be in costume because I didn't get it finished. So I stayed up ALL NIGHT, imaging myself in an episode of Project Runway, to make sure he would have it.
And here he is...
Goku from Dragon Ball Z Kai!
Although Dragon Ball is a favorite with my two boys, I'm not that familiar with the cartoon series. But Goku (a main hero) was who my son wanted to be. This was the illustration that I used for the costume. There was no pattern so I had to use an old pattern that I had used two years ago. By altering the size a little larger, I was able to make a costume that he was happy with.
I used my applique skills to place a symbol on the back and a smaller version on the front. Just to prove to you that I'm not familiar with Goku, I had sewn the symbol on the wrong side. Both neither son noticed until I had shown them.
So now, I have some relief that the all the costumes are done and promise myself that I will start earlier next year. They are already thinking of new costumes for 2012. Until then, I can dive back into my quilting!
