We got a bunch of cool ravens, skeletons, and chair covers.
While I was putting the chair covers on the kids play chairs, Juju decided to take one off and try to wear it.
A light bulb went on, and voila a costume was created.
|The chair cover. 20 in. x 21 in.|
|I took one of Juju's shirts to use as a template for the hole placement.|
|After I cut the openings, I turned the pumpkin inside out and sewed by the new opening seams.|
|Of course by the time I had made the costume Julia would not put it on!|
I think the great thing about this costume is the versatility! It has it's own puffiness so you don't have to worry about wearing tons of padding underneath to make it a pumpkin shape. It also has tons of room if you need to wear warmer clothes underneath if you live in a cooler region.
I also fashioned a steam headband from felt and fold over elastic I had lying around. So for a buck, not bad!
