An Ohio mom is getting creative with crochet for her sons' Halloween costumes. 

This year, Stephanie Pokorny knitted "Alien" and Skeletor costumes for her sons, Jacob and Jack. 

“The ideas were completely inspired by my kids,” Pokorny told InsideEdition.com. “I always let them choose whatever they want to be.”

Pokorny said it took around 50 hours and about two weeks to crochet this year’s costumes. The mom said her kids love it and it’s something her mom did for her as well as when she was a kid.

“I remember one time she made me a Rapunzel hat and I can remember her braiding like 6-foot braids across the bed in my grandma’s house and I loved it,” Pokorny said of her mom. “I was in second grade, so being able to do that for them and seeing how much they love it and creating that tradition with them is really important for me.”

Pokorny said her kids start thinking about the year’s costumes in the summer. She loves to make them part of the process.

“They are trying it on to make sure it’s comfortable. It fits right,” Pokorny said. “They have come to expect it almost. They know it’s a big long process so they are very resolute in their decisions for being young men.”
