This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kelly, the 'Goodnight Moon' costume creator:
Because of my toddler's emerging love of books, my family decided to dress up as classic Children's books this year. The book I chose to embody was "Goodnight Moon" as I have enjoyed reading it to all my little ones. The design was a challenge, but the result is incredible!
We ended up attaching a felt Cow-Jumping-Over-the-Moon picture crafted by my daughter to a green T-shirt. I designed the frame by placing some 1/2 inch foam under some yellow fabric (yes, I love hot glue!). Then my husband created the authentic window extending out along my arm our of fabric and ribbon. I took an old black skirt I owned, shortened it, and sewed on felt logs with tulle flames. Then I covered 1 inch foam shaped like a fireplace with stone-colored fabric. I similarly covered the foam clock in blue fabric. We added a thin ribbon hanging from the mantle to hang socks and mittens from. We also attached little felt kittens. This mantle configuration was worn along a belt, after attaching a few loops to slide the belt through. My few finishing touches were a felt star bobby-pinned in my hair, star sequins stuck on my temples, and a red helium-filled balloon tied to my wrist. So....
Goodnight room, goodnight moon
Goodnight cow jumping over the moon, goodnight light and the red balloon
Goodnight kittens and goodnight mittens
Goodnight clocks and goodnight socks
Goodnight noises everywhere.
