Jetson’s Halloween Costumes

I’ve been making Halloween costumes my whole life. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, probably cause I loved playing dress-ups as a kid. My mom made our costumes when we were little (wish I still had some of those vintage patterns). So having a handmade costume is always preferable to me.
It wasn’t easy trying to decide a best or favorite costume for this blog carnival. I just went though my Halloween photo album and picked one that I enjoyed creating.  It was 1989, so the old scanned photo here isn’t the best. I decided my hubby and I would be George & Jane Jetson. Their clothing wasn’t so hard to design, I even got the rings around the wrists and ankles, and used wire to make the skirt hem flare out. The hair was the hard part.  Since the photo was taken at night it’s very difficult to see, but I ended up getting some cheap wigs and trying to style Georges in that flat swirl across the top and Janes with those winged curls along the sides. I wasn’t perfectly successful with those, but it was better than our real hair.


  1. OMG - how cute! What are you going to be this year? I feel like dressing up.

  2. Don't know if we'll be doing anything with Bob having another kidney stone. I have a bathing suit I made awhile back that ended up looking like a super hero costume, maybe we could make something funny up with it for you.

  3. That is the cutest darn thing I've ever seen. So what year was that?????

  4. I'm thinking more like 1959......

  5. haha wiseguy, 1959 would have been my 1st hallloween & he wasn't even born yet... it was our 1st halloween together, so what will you be this year?
