Sometimes, when kids ring my doorbell trick-or-treating, I pretend I’m not home. Yes, yes, I know, I’m a horrible person. However, if it were Stephanie Pokorny’s sons, I’d definitely open my door and spoil them with candy. Stephanie creates costumes that are really amazing as their family is “absolutely obsessed” with Halloween. 

She wrote on Bored Panda, “Each year, I freehand crochet full-body Halloween costumes with no actual crochet patterns for my children. Sometimes these unique costumes are from classic ’80s movies, other times from whatever movie or toy is popular at the time.”

“Once they choose their Halloween costume ideas, I begin on bringing them to life. They love to follow along with my progress, and each day they ask, ‘Is it done yet?’”

The warmth from the crochet is always a plus for their family as they live in a cold climate and they travel around the neighborhood. “Each of the costumes for the kids takes between 25-40 hours, and I tend to work on them over the course of about two weeks. I have been crocheting since I was 16. I was taught by my Grandma, and these creative costumes are my passion.”

Stephanie revealed the beginning of her passion for costume-making with bored panda. “My mother made my costumes for me as a child, and I remember being beyond excited to wear them. It brings me such joy to be able to do the same for my children!”
