2009 Halloween Costume Contest Winners

Best Use of Recycled Materials: Where the Wild Things Are by aljmcc.

Halloween has come and gone, but we had a blast reliving the holiday by going through all of the creative, well-executed, adorable, scary and sometimes hilarious costumes entered into our Threads Halloween Costume Contest. Although it sounds cliché to say that there were so many good entries that it was almost impossible to choose, it truly was a tough decision for our editors! However, we finally came to a decision and are proud to announce the winners below. Congratulations to the winners for your standout costume creations and all of the hard work that went into making them!

Winners will receive a prize package from Threads including More Fabric Savvy by Sandra Betzina, Couture Sewing Techniques by Claire B. Shaeffer,  Easy Guide to Sewing by Lynn MacIntyre and Marcy Tilton, and Threads Fitting DVD Series.

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest! We look forward to seeing what you come up with next year.

–Happy Sewing!
