Ok...I really outdid myself this year!
My all time favorite...WILD THING!!
This came out better than all my expectations!
I made the shirt out of two colors of velour which I cut into strips, serged together and then made an oversized shirt out of it. The pants...couldn't find white leggings where I live...crazy...so I bought a pair of adult stretchy pants, cut them down to her size (yes that's a her under there) and painted the scales on. The feet were a pair of garfield feet we had floating around that I covered with the rest of the pant material and painted.
But the best part is the HEAD!!! I made the head shape out of plastic canvas, cut in a pattern of a felt ball and hot glued together. I glues that onto a fire hat without the brim. I hot glued the fur on . The face is an almond shape piece of plastic canvas covered with white tricot (like bathing suit lining...or kind of like pantyhouse material), stuffed and then sewn to make the nose and lines and dry brush painted to color it. The eyes are the tricot painted yellow...so it can be seen through. The only thing I am not happy with are the horns..I was trying to make curved horns but gave up cause I got too tired.
Next was the lion king
The head is a plastic canvas sheet rolled up and then a curve was cut in it to insert a balloon and then paper mache. The nose and mouth are made out of foam clay and then paper mached and then the ears are disks of plastic canvas paper mached.
I found two sweatshirts the right color so she is wearing the top one inside out and then I cut the sleeves off the other and made it into pants...lol
The fabric is from joann fabrics and I did some painting in black to make it look a little more like an african print.
I do facepainting so the face was no problem but I modified the costume because I didn't think my daughter would be comfortable in a unitard..lol
Found this really fun fabric at joann...it's not faux fur...it's like a polyester print with fibers all over.
I just glued them on a white sweatshirt in stripes and painted some wiggly lines.
Well...that's my halloween...I did all the costumes in about two weeks...wish I had started sooner...but, then...I always say that! LOL
On to Christmas crafting.....
