This homemade costume for babies entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Liz, the 'Man in the Yellow Hat' costume creator:

This is my son Jack. He loves Curious George so I made this costume with some things we had a some were sourced/bought. None of the items were from a costume store. The jacket is just a yellow rain coat that we already owned. The yellow pants are from a set of pjs that we already had. The brown boots I bought from Target and can be used after Halloween as well. I put tall brown socks on to make the boots look a bit taller. The Curious George Monkey we already owned (bought of Amazon). The part that really makes the costume is the hat and tie. I bought felt sheets from the dollar store. I used some cardboard from a diaper box to cut a 12" round circle traced with a mixing bowl. I used a smaller bowl for the centre circle (depending on head size - about 8") and cut that out as well. I used yellow felt to cover the 'brim' of the hat. I used two pieces of felt to create the top of the hat - folding in half to make the pieces the same and then sewed them around. I cut slits all around the bottom and started to glue those to the bottom of the brim. Once all glued, I traced another piece of felt for the bottom of the brim to cover up all the glued bits. I used black felt to make the black band around the hat where the brim meets the top part. For the tie, I just cut a tie shape out of the yellow felt and added black felt circles. I cut a piece of elastic and glued it to the tie so it would stay around my son's neck. It sounds complicated but it was pretty easy. In all I spend only $25 ($20 for the boots and $5 in felt and glue sticks).
