Beware: if you go trick-or-treating in these costumes, you might haul home an extra large load of candy. Spoonflower designers have created some exciting and fantastical engineered patterns on fabric that will make you the talk of the neighborhood! What's more, you can sew these costumes in no time yourself, with just a seam here and a hem there. This week's winner was Ceri of Wales, UK, who created a gorgeous pair of reversible wings. Don't miss out on this collection of creative costumes.
