This Mom Hand-Crocheted Unique Halloween Costumes Of Slimer, E.T. And Predator

I think we can all agree that this past month has been about Halloween only. Not only October but September too. Halloween fans made sure that they are fully prepared for the eerie holiday. We have seen almost everything, and in most cases, we have seen people going great lengths to be as spooky as possible. I never even thought that things such as E.T. could look adorable and fluffy and cuddly?

Man, this one mom was quite determined to make her sons’ Halloween costumes really stand out. She even hand-crocheted the pieces, stitch by stitch.

Mom spoke for, saying:

My goal is to almost make it look like I’m transforming my child into the character completely. As opposed to him just putting on a costume, my goal is to make it almost like he is one with it.

She dressed up her three-year-old Jack as Slimer from “Ghost Busters,” while putting her other kids in E.T., Papa Smurf, garden gnome, Predator, caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland and Harry Potter costumes.

Pokorny, the creative mom, explained her love and dedication for the things she does, saying that it comes from “a love of nurturing imagination and a fun approach to life and having that with my children and allowing them to know that they can have fun.”

The best part about all this? She doesn’t even follow any instructions or patterns. She works freehand, explaining:

I start with whatever my children request and then I take to yarn and hook and I build from the floor up. I do the body first and then I always save the face for last because I feel like that’s when the piece really comes to life, especially the eyes.

Each costume is made up of around 2,000 yards of yarn and they took around 25 to 40 hours to make. The mother explained:

My inspiration probably started out when I was a little kid and my mom made costumes for me. When I was very young, she made me a Rapunzel [costume] with a real long braid made out of yarn. That was probably about the second grade, and I still remember that.

This is an obvious sign that making costumes for her children awakens the nostalgia in her, making her reminisce the old days when she used to do just that with her mother. We all keep our inner child alive.
