This Mom Crocheted an ET Costume For Her Son, and the Details Are Out of This World
Stephanie Pokorny, a mom of four boys and a seriously talented crocheter, has always loved making things with her hands. Over the past few years, Stephanie decided to blend her passion for crocheting with her Halloween obsession, and the results are these jaw-dropping costumes she made by hand.
"I have always been someone who liked to make things, so instead of the toy store, my grandma and grandpa would take me to the craft store instead," Stephanie told POPSUGAR. "My grandma taught me at 16, and I became obsessed. The rest is history! I have always been a real Halloween-lover, so it was natural to combine the two loves."
As for how she selects which costumes to create? She lets her boys decide, of course. "Each year, my children choose what they want to be, and I do my best to make it come to life for them," explained Stephanie.
And yes, as expected, each creation takes a heck of a long time to bring to life. "The costumes are freehanded with no pattern, and that's actually my favorite way to work," said the mom. "I'm guessing the Predator costume I did most recently took about 40 hours over a period of three weeks."
