Baby Mouse in a Mouse Trap Costume

Baby Mouse in a Mouse Trap Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Babies
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Animal Costumes

This homemade costume for babies entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Shawna, the 'Baby Mouse' costume creator:

This is my daughter Inara's first Halloween so we wanted to do something fun. She is a mouse in a trap! I saw something similar online and just added my own little touches to it. My husband and I made the costume together, mostly with pieces from Home Depot. It's simply a piece of foam covered in veneer that we stained (it came out a little darker than we'd planned, but that's OK). To cover the fact that it was veneer and foam, we outlined the outside edges with black duct tape and added the V in red duct tape. We also lined the inside of the mouse hole in soft foam and take in case our daughter decided she needed to chew on it (which she did). The spring/hinge piece is PVC sprayed with copper spray paint and the cheese is a piece of florist's foam sprayed with paint as well. I used a melon baller to carve out the holes. We laid the whole kit and caboodle on a wagon and voila - perfect costume for a non-walking baby! We just pull her around in it and people think it's hilarious :)
