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

A word from David, the 'Phillie Phanatic' costume creator:

Our 8 year old son Michael is a huge baseball fan and loves the Philadelphia Phillies. He has been watching baseball since he has been a year old and has a passion for the game. Every Halloween he has been a baseball player and this year he asked if he could be a baseball mascot. His choice was no other than the Phillie Phanatic. So the idea was planted and I discussed this idea with a friend of mine. Before long, the legs were done and the shoes were created. Then the green fur was ordered and the body was made. A shirt too large for our son but too small for the costume was ordered and altered. Finally the head was molded out of chicken wire and a small megaphone, covered in fur and detailed using feathers and model magic. A little stitching and stuffing and the Phillie Phanatic was recreated for our son right down to the working party tongue!

We still have this costume. I (my friend) wouldn't be willing to do it again, but we are considering selling it on eBay since our kids will never fit in it again ;o) The costume is awesome. It took a lot of time (and money) to make. Looks like it did when it was new and has been stored safely in a hockey bag. Let me know what you'd be willing to buy it for. I'm pretty sure we could get a decent amount selling it. My son was 8 when it was made so it would potentially fit a 7-9 year old depending on how big the child is.

Hi Dave - If you're going to post it on ebay, could you send me an email? My email is Katiesamuel[at]yahoo.com...thanks! My son just turned 9 and is a youth medium generally size 8/10...I'd be interested in seeing how much you'd want to sell it for, I'm sure it was expensive to make, as I'm thinking about it, and have been adding it up in my head! I just don't know if it would fit! THANKS!
