This homemade costume for babies entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kristen, the 'Mike VII in his Game Day Cage' costume creator:
My 3 month old son Connor is wearing the costume. He is in a homemade metal cage, made of a utility wagon and steel bracing with a wooden top. The inspiration was my nieces elementary school fall festival, they are the tigers and the school colors are purple and gold. She was an LSU cheerleader who was able to ride on top of Mikes cage. To create Start with a wagon then weld steel poles and wire together to create the cage, next sit the cage inside of the wagon and build a top out of plywood, spray paint the top in yellow gold and the cage with white paint. Next paint on letters, and add your favorite purple and gold decorations. Finally place a soft blanket and pillows to the wagon and a precious baby in a tiger costume. Hang a football helmet from the top of the cage for the little tiger to play with.
