We got the Raggedy Ann and Andy pattern from Simplicity and hit the fabric outlet. Cost is about $45 each, we even made homemade wigs. My mom is a seamstress so I was sure we would have the best costume! The fittings were the hardest part as we had to wrestle with my moms three labs. We bought the striped socks at Party City, I bought Mary Jane shoes at Walmart! He wore black Sketchers.
Making the gloves for the hands was hard, as well as the wigs. We got all kinds of strange looks when driving to the costume party, but it didn’t bother us…we knew we looked good! We nailed every piece of the costume even down to Andy’s mascara! Everyone LOVED our costumes. So original, hands down we won! I personally can’t wait until we can wear these again for another contest! We did win first prize at the costume party. Everyone is trying to out do us this year, hoping we came up a good idea this year as well!
