I've been working tirelessly on 2 of my kids' halloween costumes. We've been sick so it's worked out well... can't leave the house much. Here's my progress so far.
For my 6 year old son, a construction legoman costume. The head took some figuring out. I've seen yellow buckets but I really wanted the round shape. So I went with a hat box and covered it with yellow wrapping paper. My husband still has to drill through the eyes I drew. I've got a box for him to wear over the top half of his body, but it still needs to be spray painted blue. He'll also wear a construction man's vest, yellow gloves, and hold a big hammer. He's going to wear regular old blue jeans on bottom because the thought of him wearing square cardboard legs conjures up visions of multiple injuries. ;)
My 4 year old daughter wanted to be a peacock this year. I was so excited to put this one together. I found the dress in the clearance section of Target... perfect color and perfectly frilly. I added feathers for the tail, and a couple the the bodice, and a row to peek out under the ruffles. I may add another layer of feathers on bottom, too.
She is so excited about this mask. It was fun to embellish! Final touch (not pictured) is a wand. I found a stem with a peacock feathered ball on the end.
Are you making costumes this year? What are you making and how's it coming?
