My best friend and I decided to go as Raggedy Ann and Andy costume. The costumes were really easy.
I got most of everything we are wearing at thrift shops. For Raggedy dolls, I took plaid material and sewed the shirt for them both very basic and simple. The striped stockings are white tights with red tape around them all the way up. My dad had the red tape it was almost like electrical tape (real glossy).
The white Apron on Raggedy Ann is a curtain with red ruffles at the top that I just added straps to and hot glued to the shirt in the back. We have on black baby doll shoes and Andy has on home made kids pants with suspenders that we found at the thrift store, we also found the bloomers that Ann wore at a thrift store.
We did buy our wigs at a costume store so they would look real. We pulled up a picture of Raggedy Ann and Andy on the internet and used Halloween makeup to do our faces. Well I (Raggedy Ann) have always dreamed of being a make up artist in special effects so I love to make faces up and I did the make up for both. Which was fairly simple red round cheeks and red lips and a red nose, there are some brown stitches on there but you can not see them in the picture. Andy's lips are smaller than Anns.
We had a lot of fun that night and a lot of our friends did not know that Andy was who she was and a girl!

I bought the Tragedy Ann Costume from an online store, but needed something for my husband. I got an Andy costume pattern from the fabric store and used black and white fabrics in place of the red and blue. I put the zipper in the front, so that help wasn't needed to get in and out of it. I found a skull and cross bones necklace at the Halloween store and fastened it to the collar.
The hat was made from black and white fabric and I sewed the yarn hair to the hat. I had looped it long and intended to cut it, but he wanted to keep it long.
My costume came with a yarn hairpiece, so I took the bow off and sewed it to a barrette. I took some black fabric and sewed the yarn "hair" to it. I put Velcro on the wig and wig cap. I stayed on all night. The costume was a big hit at the party.
I love doing completely original Halloween costumes and I had never seen a good Homemade Evil Raggedy Ann Costume. The dress was from Goodwill, the apron was homemade frome some old fabric, and I bought a cheap pair of tights to go with. Raggedy Andy's head was a last minute addition that (I think) made the costume. I used an old white tshirt stuffed with more old tshirts and a cut up red tshirt for his hair. The hat was a cheap kid's sailor hat that I just sewed on top. Then, of course, I added someblood and the look was complete.
