|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Diana, the 'Day of the Dead Paletero Man' costume creator:
My son Jeovanny is 2 years old and is wearing a costume that was made by his grandpa. The hat and the poncho were ordered online and the makeup was done by me. Simple. The ice cream cart is made from a box that went over one of those little plastic grocery carts for kids. We used white contact paper the kind you use for like kitchen drawers etc. All over the box. He spray painted the wheels black and made his own little handle up top with some wood and I believe the box was re enforced with wood as well at the bottom so the whole thing could be sturdy. I went online and printed pictures with different ice cream and got them developed at Walgreens and we just stuck them all around the cart. The openings on top are just thick cardboard spray painted in a shiny grey and he stuck a drawer handle on the main one so it can open up and people put treats inside. He made a hole for that little wooden stick to go threw and we just stapled chips to make it seem more realistic (people actually thought we were selling things). My dad started this project about a month before Halloween.
