Growing up in Ohio, I always hated having to wear a coat over my Halloween costume. Last year, I decided to insert warmth under the costume (not a novel idea, I know). After deciding my almost 2 year old daughter would entertain us by being Batman for Halloween, I took to creating her costume.
Using a black zip-front hoodie as the base, a crafted a cape to go around. I inserted a zipper in the front of the cape, in order to ease any drama around putting the costume on. I also crocheted a mask, but that was a no-go with the munchkin. Definitely not a flawless creation, but fun nonetheless!
