The bat wings were on the agenda all along, but the hat was a last minute addition thanks to Dana. Once I saw her costumes I knew I had to make a hat.
Aside from the whole velvet is the devil thing, I love this hat. As many of you may recognize it is the Cozy Winter Hood from Oliver +S. I made the ears a little more pointy and I added a Widows Peak along the brow line. I made the largest size and it fits Luca fine but the strange thing is that it also fits me. Hmmm.
I'm debating whether I should make one for Vinny just in case on Halloween he has a change of heart and decides that dressing up is tres chic. He's fickle that way.
I used a velvet that I bought at my local craft/fabric shop and a duchess satin for the lining from Fabric.com. The sequin elastic (used on shoulder and wrist straps) was also bought locally.
