Let's get spooky!!! Empty Let's get spooky!!!

Wed Oct 23, 2019 11:34 pm
Halloween is coming, so I'd love to see everybody's spooky Customs!!! I'll start wi my two:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Meet Apple Bobber, one of my two Halloween Babies. Apple Bobber was born on the first of November & loves to play games. Her favourite food is apples. She has streaks of glow in the dark white in her hair & her symbols also glow in the dark.

And this is Ghost Story, the other Halloween Baby. She was born on the thirteenth of October & loves scary movies & spooky stories. Her favourite food is popcorn, which she spills on herself when she gets a fright, which she loves. Like Apple Bobber her symbols & the white streaks in her hair glow in the dark.

Now it's your turn!!!

More Spooky Ponies!!!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Meet Blood Moon, a G2 Boy. Blood Moon is based on the Lunar Eclipse, which makes the moon red, with a little Halloween magic added so the moon is bleeding. Most Ponies, like most people, don;t like change, but Blood Moon thrives on it. Without it, he can stagnate. Good thing he's G2-age; plenty of things change in puberty!!!

Made from the HQ black Boy, Putrid Pumpkin here is based on pumpkin lanterns. There are that many Custom Ponies called Jack O Lantern, I didn't want to infringe on somebody else wi this lad, so Putrid Pumpkin is his name. He may be an adult, but Putrid Pumpkin still enjoys Halloween, like the dressing up & the fun games, & his home is decorated specially every year.

I was given a batch of BBE baits & ended up wi a spare one, who became Witching Hour here. Witching Hour is the time between midnight & 1am; the time Witching Hour loves to play tricks on others. The time on her rumpmark is half-past 12, right in the middle of her hi-jinx!!!
One more coming soon, wi another later when I get the base Pony...

Here's the next one: Tricky Sweet!!! He loves sweets, all kinds of sweets, & loves to fill his bucket full of them. But he knows in the UK it's not just a case of shouting "trick or treat" to get the sweets; he has to perform. So he knows a lot of jokes & is a pretty good singer too. If he gets too many sweets, he shares them with the other Baby Ponies. Just waiting on the base for the Mum for the last one, & Clipper assures me she's on her way soon.

BUMP IN THE NIGHT!!!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Vampyre Queen is done, Made from a b-grade Sweetness dyed green, so she glows in the dark. Her Apoxie fangs & her symbols were painted with paint mixed wi glow in the dark paint so glow too. Her hair is Venom (I still had some left), & she's the Mum of the family. She can make the most innocent things look spooky & her specialty is tomato puree & cheese puffs, shaped like faces with fangs where the puree drips out. They taste delicious, even though they look gory!!! She also lives dressing up, & hoof-sews her own costume every year.

Witching Hour is dressed as a witch of course.
Batty Boo has her own bat wings!!!
Blood Moon's outfit is meant to be a wolf, but mouse is also acceptable.
Ghost Story is dressed as a ghost obviously.
Apple Bobbler is another witch.
Putrid Pumpkin loves his bear costume.
And Vampyre Queen has a cape & a Pony tiara.

Last scary BUMP of the year!!!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The Spooky Cabin is updated!!! New Ponies live there, & everyone has a costume on. There are an extra pumpkin bucket, three small cauldron buckets, two big pumpkin buckets, & a big cauldron bucket full of Halloween sweets. A skeleton hangs in the entryway, while spiderwebs decorate the alcoves & top railing. Bats fly about, spiders crawl around, black cats romp & play, & a small frog leaps about. Though you can't see it, there's also a small lady beetle for Lovely Ladybug to play with. Spooky ribbons trim the roof & ceilings, some made into macabre garlands. Enjoy

I got bitten by the costume bug!!! See pattern pics in my Gallery, but here are the outfits. Extras added as shown
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The Baby Brother outfits start this off. This is a deer costume. The antlers were the toughest bit to do, as they needed stuffed as well as sewn together & sewn into the costume. The ears are simple & short, &n the tail is small, stuffed, & white underneath
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Next up is a pig costume. The tail is the tricky bit here, as it's meant to be a curl. Ears are squared, rather than rounded
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The polar bear is quite easy. Short tail, rounded ears, & you can make it brown or black for other bear costumes
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Easy enough to make twice, in fact. Great winter costume for Baby Brothers or G2s
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
It's not the only costume I had to make two of though. A second shark costume HAD to be made!!! The big dorsal is sewn together, stuffed, & stitched carefully onto the top. The second dorsal is sewn into the tail piece. The pectorals are stuffed & sewn either side. The teeth are a strip of stiff white felt with triangles cut out of it, then sewn into the hood
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Didn't I tell you the Baby Brother costumes also fit G2s??? This is the tiger costume. The ears are rounded, the tail is long & stuffed, & the whole thing (except ears) has black stripes stuck on with fabric glue. Velcro tags must be sewn in to the front though because of pulling
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Next up, Newborn costumes. The black cat costume, which can also be other colours, has triangular ears & a long, stuffed tail
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Because Newborns often come as twins, so do these costumes, like this pair of dog costumes. Spots are glued on, tails can be whatever shape you wish for your dog, as can ears. I chose iconic cartoon dog Spot as inspiration for these
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
For the dolphin, the head piece is different, with a longer extension on the front for the famous bottle-shaped nose. The tail is like a shark's, except stitched in to align like that of a cetacean. The dorsal follows the same method as the shark costume
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Everybody loves dragons, except when it comes to sewing them. Grab your main colour for the pattern, then cut the whole lot in half lengthwise, head piece included, before making a long strip of contrasting colour spines with stiff felt. This also extends into the tail of the costume, with a final tailpiece added. If you want wings, they will need to be of stiff felt of the main colour. Wing stitching tips later
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Last of the Newborn costumes is the mouse. Rounded ears & a long, pointed tail make this costume
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Now we're on the Teeny costumes. The first is the bunny. The long ears are doubled & sewn, & no matter what colour you make the main body, the tail must be white
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Next is the Teeny butterfly. The wings are white felt decorated with fabric pens. They're stitched in by running stitch up & down the centre of the wings. Make wings by folding stiff felt in half, then cutting them out, leaving the fold intact. Antennae are also best as stiff felt & stitched into the hood
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Teeny dog is like Newborn dog, but smaller
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
If you can make a shark costume, you can make a fish costume. Have fun with different dorsal & tail shapes, & use assorted colours, spots, & stripes. This fish is blue with yellow parts, including the yellow pectoral fins (they can also be different shapes)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
For the lady beetle. you cut out the hood part, & use it as a stencil for your black felt hood, before stitching the head piece in with stiff felt antennae, & sewing the whole hood back onto the body. The wings are the same as the butterfly, just a different shape & undecorated, while the spots are stuck on like those of the dog costumes. By combining parts of the lady beetle & tiger costume, using a golden yellow main colour, & adding a pointy tail piece, you can make a bee costume
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
To finish, we have a teeny mouse costume. Have fun making your own felt costumes using the pattern pics in my gallery xxx
