|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
My 10 month old Mila is wearing the costume. We were trying to come up with a unique idea for all of us. Her father and i are going to be ghostbusters. I made the costume by using a bathrobe as the base for it. Cut off the arms the bathrobe. Measured out green fabric to fit the width of the bathrobe and sewed and stuffed a roll. Then sewed the role on to the bottom. Continued up the bathrobe till i got to the head. Then cut out a shape of the head to have two matching sides. sewed those pieces together and turned it inside out.Added nose and eyes out of fabric from the bathrobe and eye pegs, then started sewing it to the hood of the bathrobe. Left two holes open on each side near the mouth to stuff the head. Then sewed it up. Used cardboard for the teeth and glued it to the inside of red fabric, then sewed the fabric to the inside of the hood. tada. all together cost me like $17. still think its adorable. also sewed on velcro to keep it closed. Will be worn with green onsie and black leggins underneath.
