Captain Cutie Costume
Captain Anthony at attention
|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Robin, the 'Captain Cutie' costume creator:
Since my two year old son would not wear his monkey costume this was a last minute costume idea inspired by him. He grabbed his tricorn hat and musket which he had bought at the USS Constitution and I took it from there. I quickly grabbed leftover Christmas ribbon and an old curtain. I sewed the gold ribbon around the cuffs, collar and hat to make it look like old navy uniform from the pirates of the carribean. I then grabbed the curtain and cuts at small piece and folded it to make an ascot and sewed it together and fastened a rubber band to attach it to a white button down shirt. I also sewed white fabric around his cuffs to make it look like the shirt had large cuffs. For the breeches he wore linen capris rolled up and long white socks pulled up with brown dress shoes. The costume took a total of 15 minutes to create and my little Captain was a hit this halloween.
