Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Hey Dynamos!  You've only got one day left to come up with an awesome Halloween costume, so here's a round-up of suggestions from your best pal Jaime!  

The Dynamite Beret is an instant Rachel Berry (from Glee) costume!

Marci pointed out that the Mother Goose hat looked just like Fleur's Beauxbaton Hat from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!

Isabella's Fireside Girl Beret is a cute option for little girls that love Phineas & Ferb...

Whether you call it the Travelocity Gnome, or just a generic Lawn Gnome, it still is a quick and funny costume! Plus, I used this costume as a great excuse to have to buy Gnome Shoes last year... That's how I got Jake to get me a pair of black Uggs...

This collage is mortifying because Linda Carter is so beautiful, but you could rock the Wonder Woman Tiara for Halloween.  Even if you don't wear the rest of the (tiny!) costume, you'll still look like the coolest chick in comic books... Even if they can't figure out how to turn her story into a movie... yet...

Last, but not least, this was my costume for my sister's annual Halloween bowling party.  Yeah, it's the 12th Doctor from Doctor Who!  What, you only know about 11 Doctors?  Well, if the BBC decides that it wants to make the next Time Lord a chunky American lady, I think she's going to look a lot like this!  LOL!!!  Costume of the Future!  Or are we in the past?...
Grab the #48 Scarf and the Tardis LCB so you can bend time to your will as well!

Also, I have got a fun treat for all of you Dynamos tomorrow!!  Starting at Midnight PST my ebook, Crochet Dynamite: Fancy-Schmancy will be FREE!!!  It's just for one day, Wednesday, October 31st, 2012!  If you've got a Kindle, or the Kindle software on your computer, smart phone, or tablet, go grab it!!!  Click on the 'Buy my Ebook' link over there on the right hand side 'cause it's FREE!!!

While you're there, check out my new ebook, Crochet Dynamite: Gifts for Your Besties!  It's a cool collection of five free patterns, one of my paid patterns, and two ebook exclusive patterns, perfect for gift giving to all of your best girlfriends!  The crossbody bag alone sells for more than the 99 cent book price, so it's a pretty amazing deal!

Wait, what's that?  You want that one for free too?!  Okay!  I'll offer both of my ebooks tomorrow for free!  If you like my patterns, I'd love it if you'd leave a positive review of the books on Amazon.  If there's something you don't like, send me an email at CrochetDynamite@gmail.com and tell me about it!  My books are self-published, so all feedback is appreciated!

And thank you to everyone who has been so supportive of me pursuing this dream to become a crochet designer!  I am grateful every day for each and every one of you!!!



  1. I decided I wanted a fuller-looking beard, so I used a different pattern for the beard-part, but I'm using yours for the hat, and I am working like mad to get it done by tomorrow..... (already got my "polaroid" part almost finished)
    love the costume re-cap, and your Dr. Who costume is UBER-Cool! (cooler than cool!) ;)

    1. I'm excited! I can't wait to see it! I hope you'll be putting pictures up on Facebook. Post one to the Crochet Dynamite Facebook page if you want, so everyone around here can see too! (or not, if you're not into it...)
      xo ♥ETF♥

  2. yes..... more pics will come later..... :) xo!

    1. Your Amalie Gnome turned out so cool!! I love what you did with the beard too!

      (Want to see the costume for yourself? You can check out her pictures on the Crochet Dynamite Facebook page, Dynamos!)

  3. These are such an awesome costumes for Halloween party. House parties are sometimes boring and same party supplies with self serving can be hectic too. So this time our Christmas evening will be arranged at any of the event venues in our city. All the bookings and every preparation will be handled by my cousin.
