A word from Caitlin, the 'Baby Porcupine' costume creator:
My 14 month old son is wearing the costume. I got the idea of seeing a couple porcupine costumes on Pinterest. I took those photos I saw and created my own costume, using elements from those inspiration photos. I bought a dark grey sweat suit from kohlís (on sale and woth a 30% off coupon) paid 9$ for it. I got 1/2 yard of fur fabric from Joann fabrics (6$) and had a lot of left over fur. I traced the sweatshirt outline onto the fur, adjusted the head how I wanted it and cut it out. I then sewed the fur onto the sweatshirt in 2 pieces. One for the hold, one for the body. I then took 1/4Ē foam (2 large sheets of it from Joann fabrics, on sale, 16$)drew lines on with a large chalk peni already had. I cut the quills out of the foam into small strips of varying sizes. I then individually got glued each quill into the base of the fur. It was time consuming but easy! He loved wearing it and if the quills got bent from sitting in the wagon, they easily were straightened back out!
