my boy wanted to be headless for halloween so away his head rolled! i made a wire frame for his head to support the cape. i used 14 gauge wire and twisted it around itself and made the holes for his head a little above where a hat sits, and ovals shoulders width on both sides, then taped it shut. i would have sodered it if i had more time. i was going to make a wicker patterned leather riding suit too, but time ran out. that part of the costume was like sleepy hollow. the pumpkin is a fake one carved to look like the cartoon version. i velcroed battery powered tea lights inside to make it glow. the pattern for the cape is from the site but i couldn’t find my copy and made it from memory. the collar is 100% free handed with crinoline in it to make it stand. i used bias binding to make the tie and a piece of velcro under his chin to keep it shut further down. i tried to get the sheerest fabric i could so he could see through it, but he kept peeking anyway. i gigled all night because he totally looked headless!!!!
