Hi, everybody! We’re back after our holiday break/anti-hacking fight-to-the-death (which we won, by the way), and raring to go. We have 17 new costumes to design, plus 2 Special Request costumes from Kickstarter backers, plus whatever else we can squeeze in. It’s going to be a big year, and we need all the time we can get.

But enough about us; what about you? Do you feel like thinking about costumes in February? Do you need a full nine-month gestation period to plan your October extravaganza? Or are you busy getting ready for Mardi Gras, like the fine folks in the picture up top?

Head over to our Facebook page and take the poll: How soon do you start planning your Halloween costume?

    I crochet my costumes, so I have to start early. The 2013 costume is already underway. If you want to be a crocheted tree (or coral reef, or flower garden), it’s a year-long process!

    That is me! And here’s my crocheted coral reef costume from a couple years ago:

    You are a genius. Seriously, your work is amazing. What are you going to be this year?

    Thanks! I don’t usually say so early on, in case it doesn’t work out or I change my mind, but … right now it’s another natural phenomenon. And I’m using a lot of white, grey, and silver this time.
