Tony the Tiger on a Frosted Flakes box
Tony the Tiger
|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Laura, the 'Tony the Tiger' costume creator:
The idea came when we decided we wanted our little one to be a tiger and we wanted a coordinating costume for mom. Thus we came up with Tony the Tiger as part of a Frosted Flakes box. Mom carried the baby in the baby carrier, and decorated the front of the carrier to look like a tiger (made of felt). Then I took a big 40" flat panel TV box and cut out some spots where Tony the Tiger was and where mom needed to get into the box and a cutout for mom's eyes to see out of. The rest of the costume (letters, nutrition facts, etc.) were all felt. Overall cost was only the cost of felt material, which was about $15, and the cost of the tiger costume for baby, which was $20.
