Halloween buttons

I made my daughter Pearl a Yoda costume for Halloween — starting with a hat from Heather Mann’s fantastic and easy tutorial, and dipped into my stash to pick out a set of brown buttons for his eyes.

I actually made three versions of the hat, in baby, small toddler and big toddler sizes. So cute.

I also made my Yoda a companion snake, and got to use some favorite vintage white moonglows for that too!

The entire Yoda costume tutorial is here on the CRAFT: blog if you want to check it out.

Meanwhile, Craftster member thestamppit made this incredible Coraline “Other Mother” costume for Dragon*Con, covering her eyes with buttons. I wrote a bit more about it over at Geek Crafts, and the Craftster thread on ideas for the costume is over here.


If you used buttons on your Halloween costume, or spotted a good one someone else made, I’d love to hear about it!
