With Halloween just around the corner, we are all looking out for ways to celebrate our favorite spooky holiday. Well, some might prefer watching their favorite horror movies, others might head to spooky-themed events with family for their Halloween getaway.
However, this Ohio mom may have just won Halloween big time, thanks to her incredible knitting skills that are going viral for all the right reasons.
Stephanie Porkony's family has been "absolutely obsessed" with Halloween, and she manages to knit Halloween costumes that are truly one-of-a-kind.
Knitting Halloween costumes for her sons — Jacob, 6, and Jack, 4, Stephanie has been doing this for many years and has uploaded these costumes on her website Crochetverse.
"Each year, I freehand crochet full-body Halloween costumes with no actual crochet patterns for my children," she was quoted as saying by Bored Panda. "Sometimes these unique costumes are from classic '80s movies, other times from whatever movie or toy is popular at the time."
"Once they choose their Halloween costume ideas, I begin on bringing them to life. They love to follow along with my progress, and each day they ask, 'Is it done yet?'" she added.
Interestingly, not only do these knitted head-to-toe costumes are cute but they also keep the kids warm during the cold climate.
"Each of the costumes for the kids takes between 25-40 hours, and I tend to work on them over the course of about two weeks. I have been crocheting since I was 16. I was taught by my Grandma, and these creative costumes are my passion."
Some of the costumes she has knitted for her son include Predator, Harry Potter, Papa Smurf, E.T. and many more characters. Stephanie said that her inspiration comes from her mother who also made her crocheted costumes as well.
"My mother made my costumes for me as a child, and I remember being beyond excited to wear them. It brings me such joy to be able to do the same for my children!"
But here's something you may not have wanted to read -- she reportedly makes these Halloween costumes only for kids. So if you are a grown adult who was looking to rock these incredible costumes, sorry, it isn't happening.
She had also made it evident that if the kids want these knitted Halloween costumes, they will have to make up their minds by the beginning of October.
