My 4 year old wanted to go as Honey Lemon from Big Hero 6 this year. We love this movie and at one point I had grand plans of making costumes for the whole family, but reality sets in and I ended up with one awesome Honey Lemon costume and a really sad attempt at a Baymax costume for her baby sister.
The hat was inspired by a pattern I saw on Etsy
. I didn't end up buying the pattern and just winged it. Wung it?
The purse was made out of duck tape. I've never made anything out of duck tape before, but it was even easier than I could have hoped. I found the heart image via google. I think I used this one
. I bought the colored ping pong balls and attached them with hook and loop coins so that she could detach the balls and throw them. And the best part of all was that it held her halloween candy perfectly!
I sewed the dress and I haven't really sewn anything since home ec class 20+ years ago so that was an adventure. It was a good thing I had bought enough fabric to take a couple stabs at it. The "armor" was made out of a red turtleneck that I bought at the thrift store for $1.00 and a dixie cup. The tights were bought on ebay and I bought two pairs so that I could take one pair and cut a hole in the crotch and put it over her head like a shirt. Worked like a charm and she stayed super warm during trick or treating.
Overall, I was super happy with how it all came out and most importantly, my daughter loved it!
