I initially made these costumess for Halloween, but they quickly turned into playtime fun costumes! They have lots of fun playing dress-up in these. These are my own patterns. They came out perfect the first try! I was pretty proud of these. There was a lot of sketching involved in these blueprints, and I was pretty impressed that I made no errors.

Those are just hilarious! I especially love the kid in the shark costume's pose; so casual, so "Yep, I'm a shark." LOL

That goldfish is amazing, but I want a shark headpiece/hat now.

Thanks a bunch...

...and a good eye - thank you!!...it has enabled me to eyeball lots and lots of cool projects. I`m not one to follow patterns or paint what I see. That is something that I find REALLY hard to do. My brain just doesn`t work that way. It`s pretty much always from my imagination, so I`m very grateful that my eyes are able to follow my internal vision!!

Thanks! I saw a goldfish pattern at the fabric store, and that's what inspired this one. I also knew that my then 7 year old boy would not walk around in sequined gold fabric and shiny red fish lips, so I made the shark. lol I will definitely pass these down from generation to generation!!!

Oh my! I'm so glad these were chosen as a Featured Project or I may have never seen them and my life would've been the lesser for it.  Not only are they fabulous for all the reasons already stated, but they can be worn with warm clothes appropriate for October and not compromise the look at all.  I gotta say that I want the shark wearer to carry a briefcase, for some reason.  Wink

You'd be hard pressed to find an actual fish with any straight lines, either.  I sent a link to this to The ManFlesh and he claimed he "wanted some immediately.  For the nieces.  Or for me and a lucky friend."

I wish I could post a how-to! But I'm not a very well-organized person and sort of just threw out the blueprints as I went along. Sort of kicking myself for it now, though. But tell you what - if I ever make them again, I'll definitely keep some kind of record and post it! lol

This is so well done! I love when parents make costumes for their kids. They are always %100 better than the stuff bought at the big stores.

I kept thinking too that if we had these as children my brother and I would have gotten into fights over who got to be the shark. lol
