This homemade costume for boys entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 6th place in the Favorite Halloween Costume nomination!

A word from Tina, the 'Indiana Jones Jr' costume creator:

My 5 year old son James as Indiana Jones Jr.
After seeing all the expensive cheaply made store bought Indiana Jones costumes, I decided to make one myself for my 5 year old son James. First I found a good picture of Indiana Jones and I tried to make as realistic as possible. The whip and the fedora I purchased at a local costume shop and all the other items came from Goodwill thrift store.

Brown Leather Jacket - $4.25
Long sleeved Safari Shirt - $2.50
Tan Pants - 50 cents
Brown Boots - $1.99
Fedora - $6.00
Whip - $3.00
Satchel - $1.00
Mens Brown Leather belt 25 cents.
(I cut this belt to size and used the scrap to make the whip holder and attached with snap. This belt does not hold up the pants and should hang a little loose below waist.)
Mens Khaki military style belt 25 cents.
(Cut this belt to size and this belt is to hold up pants)

Im Very Happy how the Indiana Jones costume turned and so is my 5 year old and all for under $20.00, one third of the cost of the store bought and 100% better!

Awe, he is so adorable! I can't believe you made that so cheaply and it looks so great. You are a very talented mom, love this.

I saw the Halloween Store costume for this and it was very poorly made and they wanted around $50. It's amazing that you assembled this for such an affordable expense. Great Job! Good Luck!

What a handsome little Indiana Jones! My son is around the same age. I showed him this and he said, "I wanted that Indiana Jones costume much better." Hopefully, I can put something similar together for him next year!

I wasn't so lucky. About the crappy store-bought one and it was not nearly as nice as this. And I paid a lot more for. Next year for Halloween. It's all Home made from my boys .
