Happy the lobster

A word from Vivian, the 'Lobster' costume creator:
This is Happy in a homemade lobster costume. We love Halloween and try to do a couples costume each year. Happy suffered from an injury that made her disabled as she got older. So I thought of this lobster chef combo so I can carry her in a pot. I made the costume out of a red cotton tshirt I got at the 99c store. She's really small so I used the sleeve of the shirt as the tube to go around her body and created a onesie. I drew an outline of a lobster on the shirt and then cut the outline and then hand stitched the pieces inside out leaving enough room to flip the costume inside out to leave a nice clean seam. I stuffed the costume with tissue paper to make sure it was lightweight on her. I attached the lobster piece into the onesie. The lobster eyes are made of thick paper towel wrapped around balled up tissue paper and I colored the pupils with a black marker. Her costume took around 4 hours to make. My chef costume was easy. I borrowed it from a friend that was taking culinary classes and I randomly had a fake mustache sticker that I thought would be funny to add. This is my favorite costume with my lovely Happy. I hope it brings happiness to others. 😊
