My husband is actually the one who came up with the idea of The Flinstones. He is a DJ for the local Pub where he works, and we decided to get into the spirit of Halloween although I must say we have not done since our kids were young.
So out comes the sewing machine. The kids also enjoyed in the fun watching us be "Cartoon Characters". At their tender ages of 22, 20 and 15 they no longer want to dress for the Holiday.
I decided that fleece would be the best material to use, but unfortunately I could not find patterns. For Fred I chose a Big T-Shirt and traced the material a little bigger and measured the length by having my husband put on one of my dress. What a sight, but I had to remind him that it was his idea.
I cut the spots out of felt and hand sewed them on and for the tie, just turquoise cotton, and stitched it around the collar.
For Wilma, a bit harder trying to fit myself. I pinned the material on my shoulders and took a marker to draw the curves. For her necklace I used Styrofoam balls threaded with elastic. I also decided to use a Red Wash Rinse for my hair because the canned spray flakes off. Experience from a Mom with Kids. We had a blast that evening and everyone really enjoyed how unique the Fred and Wilma Flinstones Halloween costumes were.
I have a year to put my mind to work, I will definitely do this again!!

I love Halloween. It is, for me, the best day of the year to party and have fun. Every year my costumes get funnier and it has reached the point when people expect me to dress a bit crazier each year. This year I decided to dress up as THE GREAT GAZOO; it is not a very popular character for Halloween and I made the coolest Great Gazoo costume ever. This costume was very simple to make but included several details.
The helmet, the most important item of the costume, was made from a plastic lamp cover bought at Home Depot. The antennae are door-stopper springs. I made the cape using cheap fabric and a stapler. The boots are from Home Depot and the belt is from a child's Batman outfit.
Obviously, the Great Gazoo is a little fat so I stuffed a pillow in the front of the costume. This costume was a total hit and people took pictures of me all night.

I've always loved the characters Pebbles and Bam Bam, and I thought it would be so cute to dress my little ones up as them this year, this might be the last year I can pick what they are going to be.
This was my first time making a costume and I had the best time doing it. I had an idea of what I wanted for this Flintstones costume and wrote out a list of what I thought I might need. 1 yard of green fleece, 1 yard of orange fleece, 2 sheets of black felt, fabric glue, strip of faux fur, and accessories, and old hat and some bones.
I had a week off of work and basically while the kids napped I cut,sewed and glued. The kids looked great. I hope they let me make their costumes next year!

Homemade Wilimina and Fredrick Flinstone Couple Costume
My husband and I decided to be the black Fred and Wilma Flinstone this year for Halloween.
The Homemade Wilimina and Fredrick Flinstone Couple Costume was roughly $50.00 a piece in the stores so I decided to make them on my own. I used fleece for my Wilma costume and felt for Fred's costume. It was easier than I thought.
I also made a Bam Bam costume for my little boy, using camouflage fleece for this. Unfortunately, he was in hospital for Halloween so we had to dress up at the hospital. The doctors and nurses were tickled pink.
We won the costume contest at the Halloween party. We wore afro wigs to give it a little African-American twist. It was such fun!
