King Peter, Queen Lucy & Aslan
|Costume type:||Costumes for Kids|
This homemade costume for kids entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
My grandson fell in love with Narnia a few years ago after watching "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." Last year we we started talking about making costumes and he and my granddaughter selected the coronation outfits - he is King Peter and she is Queen Lucy. With not actual pattern pieces, I improvised by looking at a lot of movie stills and wound up using crushed velvet for her dress and soft velvet for his tunic. I ripped out a lot of seams trying to get things right! Their capes are both lined in satin. It was a huge undertaking, but well worth the smiles and laughter! I recently returned from a trip to the Middle East, so I used a photo of a lion from our local zoo and put them all on a background of the Dead Sea for effect.
