A Super Halloween Costume Lensmaking Tip from RoseGrace

Posted: 17 Jul 2013 11:09 AM PDT

rosegraceWe had a real life problem to solve and not much time to do it in. You know those times when you find a crumpled up invitation in the bottom of your child’s school bag? You open it and you’ve got less than a week to find a costume. In our case, it wasn’t even remotely close to Halloween party time yet my daughter had been invited to a zombie party.

I had the foresight to photograph each stage of our costume creation because it makes it so much easier to explain the steps using a few text with BIG picture modules. The pictures really do tell the story. ~RoseGrace

Here’s the lens:

We love this lens! It’s personal and truly useful to anyone who finds it.

And we agree that the photos really do tell the story and help to make the instructions easy for anyone to follow.  We highly recommend using step-by-step photos on all of your Halloween costume lenses.  What do you think?  Will you try this approach on your next Halloween costume lens?  Have you done so already?
