DIY Raccoon Baby Costume

Racoon! 2013

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

This homemade costume for babies entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Emili, the 'Raccoon Baby' costume creator:

Oliver (13 months) is wearing his fuzzy raccoon costume. I got the idea to make this costume from a coworker suggesting a store bought raccoon costume. I really wanted to make him his costume this year, and this is the result! To make the costume I went to the local fabric store, all the faux fur was 40% off , so the entire costume was less than $20! Came home laid out some of his clothing on top of the fur to cut the pattern, and sew it together voila baby raccoon!

How much for it?

How did you do the hood with ears. So this is just pants and a top?

#4 comment by Emili October 7, 2015

It was a seperate hood with Velcro under the chin, I think I just cut slits in the hood and pulled the ears through and stitched.... Hope that helps

I know this is an old post but I'm hoping to get an answer.
Did you sew the fur fabric onto the clothes or just used the clothes to make the pattern?

lol I get comments just about every year still, I just used clothes to trace over the fur and make my own pattern. It was really a quick project!
