This year we decided to make our own Halloween costumes with the help of Dylon!
Now I know I’ve been a bit crafty but I must admit to being a little scared, as I’m sure some of you are, of dye!
Well I’m happy to say it’s much easier than you think! We started off with white outfits for me, Zachy and Flo :
Dylon kindly provided me with two different types of dyes in the fact that the sachets are for putting in a bowl with salt and water and leaving the garment in there, stirring intermittently. The bigger boxes you tip directly in the washing machine and just simply run a cycle!
Now I had to decide what to do!
Thanks to the Dylon colour palette that gave me creative ideas, I decided on a red bride for myself, a violet witch for Flo and a black Frankenstein suit for Zachary. I tipped in the black dye, popped in the suit and switched the machine on…
Next I did the same with my white dress and the red dye. It was so easy and the colour was perfectly distributed with no colour patches on the garments.
Finally I dyed Flo’s witch outfit in the more traditional manner in a bowl. Hers came out equally good.
I was so impressed with the process, the simplicity and the outcomes!
Next year and for any other outfits required in the future, I’ll be turning to Dylon for help and inspiration!
The kids (and me!) had a great time Trick or Treating and they’re still enjoying their treats :0
Thanks Dylon 🙂
