Adventure is Out There! Costume
Adventure is Out There! - the whole gang
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2020 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Stephanie, the 'Adventure is Out There!' costume creator:
We were inspired by a February 2020 trip to Disney World - at Animal Kingdom, in addition to enjoying the Wilderness Explorer badge collecting activity, we spotted a life-sized Kevin the snipe walking around and were amazed! I hand made all the costumes: my daughters were: Kevin the snipe, the Fredricksen's flying balloon house, and Russell the Wilderness Explorer; my nieces were Carl Fredricksen and Dug the dog! How-tos: Kevin - paper mache body (using a 36" balloon taped around the middle to create a more oval shape), cardboard supports, foam insulation pipe as the neck and a paper mache head, cut fabric feathers to decorate; House - entirely made out of cardboard! balloons stuck together with glue dots and supported with balloon sticks; Russell - shirt and shorts sewn from oliver + s patterns (details on Instructables!), patches hand cut from sticky-back felt; Carl - shirt, blazer and pants sewn from modified patterns; Dug - essentially a baby sleeping bag with padding, plus a handmade dog head hat and limbs! It was definitely a labor of love, but so much fun to make and enjoy.instagram.com/yungscrappyandhungry
