panda halloween costume with bamboo purse

what's white, black, and super cuddly? a hand-sewn and crocheted panda costume, that's what! this year for halloween i decided to play into my asian stereotype - oh there were peace signs at every camera flash. i crocheted my scoodie (hoodie + scarf) and sewed my furry black and white dress with leftover white furry fabric and a black old navy tank. i crocheted my big bamboo stick and sewed a zipper around the bottom so that it would double as a purse. I used some black furry fabric for around my boots and VOILA! a squishy, huggable, and fairly warm costume for the freezing temperatures we experience on halloween in alaska. rawr.

see last year's totoro costume HERE

  1. Aww you are so pretty! I love your costume!

  2. You always look so pretty in your photo mode. The close-up photo, "insert cute panda noises" is unreal to me. Do me favor?? Your creative!! Build me a time machine?? Long shot?? Okok, if you ever do in fact create a time machine, please attach a series of cute photos much like the great ones provided above, with said "time machine" !! Simple fan requests right :) it be awesome for the ignorant who make poor life choices. Or for those who really like back to the future?? Either way u'd be the best, take care!!

    1. Hi Anonymous,
      :) I'm not sure if I understand your request/comment, but I will do my best! ;) Lol. Thanks for taking a look at my blog! <3

    2. P.S. When I have time, I will definitely try to crochet a time machine!! That sounds like so much fun!

    3. My comment was more aimed for a smile. I truely just enjoyed your creative little outfit and how cute you looked in it. However, the time machine would be rad, and although I'm not a big "back to the future" fan I definitely would appreciate a ride back in time to see that pretty person in the outfit again. Keep steady at your craft! ;)

  3. Nice work!! I let you an Award on my blog. Visit my blog! :)

  4. Super cute! Do you happen to have the pattern still?
