Gnomeo & Juliet Costume from Halloween 2011

A friend of mine commissioned this gorgeous set of matching Halloween costumes. 

Gnomeo & Juliet was a big hit at her house and with a 6 year old boy and a 3 year old girl, she had just the right set up. But they costumes were not available for purchase in stores, so she asked me to try my hand at it. 

Juliet's dress was one piece. The wearer's previous Halloween costume had too many bits and pieces, making it a pain for Mom every time she wanted in and out. So I tried my very best to make it all connected. It has a zipper back, a small velcro closure for the vest and a sash tie for the apron. But all those pieces were connected. Nothing gets lost ;). Gnomeo's costume included a vest with an attached belt, pants, and boot covers.

They had a lovely time in them and I really loved coming up with something no one else had made! Custom order costumes are one of my favorite things to make.

  1. These kids Halloween costumes are simply adorable on these kids. An additional cuteness factor is that their facial expressions also match the original.
