Amelia as happy Zira
|Costume type:||Costumes for Babies|
This homemade costume for babies entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Taylor, the 'Zira from Planet of the Apes' costume creator:
My daughter Amelia (21 months) is obsessed with Planet of the Apes...not the new, CGI versions but the 1960's and '70's versions. She watches parts of them every. single. day! So we decided this year she would be Zira :) I went to the clearance bin at JoAnn's and it was like it was meant to be. All three fabrics I found were exactly what I was looking for an deeply discounted! With help from a family friend, we shaped the top based on a pattern from a dress; we made our own variations to make it resemble Zira's tunic. The skirt as well as the neck piece were crafted from our imagination. I figured she wouldn't really wear any makeup or much of a head piece or mask so I just bought a cheap wig from Target which she wore for literally 2 minutes (enough time to take pics). Altogether the costume cost under $15! In my humble opinion, she had the best costume of the night :)
