Mom Crocheted An Incredible Ghostbusters Halloween Costume For Her Son Without A Pattern


Halloween costumes are sometimes purchased but many mothers feel that the only way to send their children out on October 31 is with a handmade costume. This has been going on for years but now one mother in Cleveland just took things to the next level. Her name is Stephanie Pokorny and she just crocheted a Halloween costume for her son with incredible results.


Her son wanted to be Slimer from ‘Ghostbusters’ and he wanted a glow-in-the-dark costume.

“Jack’s choice and I am basically in love and want him to wear it forever and ever!” Pokorny wrote on her Facebook post showing her son wearing the costume. “Fully crocheted. No pattern.”

This is more than just a craft, it is a work of art. Perhaps the most amazing part about it is that she did not have a pattern, so she did the entire thing freehand.

In case you are wondering, she did use some non-toxic acrylic paint and the entire costume glows in the dark. This is a picture of the costume pm Instagram:

Pokorny runs a website where she shares tips and techniques with anybody who loves crochet. There are also plenty of patterns, regardless of whether you want to make stuffed animals, blankets or finger puppets. She wants to take the classic art of crochet to the next level for everyone.

Her son Jack, who was 3 1/2 loved his costume but she also made a costume for Jacob, her six-year-old son. He wanted to be Predator, one of the most intricate monsters in Hollywood. This is the result:

Can you imagine the detail? Not only does it look great, it fits great as well.

Here is a picture with the mother standing between her two boys. Check out the hat on mom!

If you want to try your hand at crochet, perhaps you could make a hat like it.
