Baby Snatcher or Baby Abductor
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Danielle, the 'Baby Snatcher or Baby Abductor' costume creator:
My son, Jake, loves optical illusion costumes. He hasn't had a store bought costume since he was 3. He wanted it to look like a Halloween ghoul was taking him away. As we were looking for the "just right" mask he saw a mom with a baby in a front. He thought it would be funny if he was a baby. I wasn't quite sure how he could do it at first. At the Halloween store he also saw a several masks. The same baby seemed to be scared of the creepy clown mask. His costume had formed in his mind!
For the costume we basically had all the materials at home. We bought the scary clown mask and purchased wooden dowels to support the clowns body. We stared with a backpack and a wooden dowel. We placed a Styrofoam head on the dowel and pinned the mask to the head. My son found a pool noodle and cut it down for the clowns shoulders. He then stuck in two dowels to give the shoulders more support. We found some of my husbands shirts to put on the clowns body. We put the turtle neck over the clowns shoulders and upper torso. The flannel we put on the clown was big enough that my son was also able to get his arms into the flannel too. The flannel was buttoned up around the clown and my son. I dug out my baby snuggly I carried my children in and strapped it to the clown. Then we put it over the clowns shoulders and strapped it to his waist too. We got an old pair of baby pajama's and stuffed the body. ! We had to buy a cheap doll because my daughter wouldn't part with any of her dolls. I put the arms and legs in the pajama's and placed "it" in baby carrier. My son had a microphone and speaker that he attached to his shirt and put speaker in the clown mask. He changed the clown's voice and made it seem like he was talking. He had a great time making this costume. He called it the Baby Snatcher or Baby Abductor.
