So for Halloween this year, my four year old (5 in four days) wanted to be a lava lamp.  That's all he talked about for weeks.  Well, after planning it out, we decided it wasn't trick or treat friendly, and he wouldn't be able to move well enough if he were to trip or whatnot.  So his next choice was a Bob-omb from Mario!  I loved it!  So this is what I came up with.

In the house
Front

Trick or Treating
Front


Side


From behind.


I originally was going to sew the wick part to his hood, but decided that I'd attach it to a hat instead so he could see better.  (His hood is a little big.)  That's why it looks a tad different in the trick or treat pics. 

I just sewed two hemispheres and stuffed them, and then added shoulder and side straps to keep it on him.  He just wore his fleece coat and some black pants underneath to kind of blend into the bomb.  The key is sewed to the back (man, he was sooo disappointed that I didn't make it functional!  LOL!) and then there is a small bit of clear fishing line supporting it so it didn't droop as he walked.  The yellow "feet" are just fleece boot covers/legwarmers I sewed up and attached elastic across the bottoms to keep them down over his shoes.  The wick is a cover from a jar I painted and drilled a hole into, and then the actual wick is a piece of rope that I put a pipe cleaner in the middle of to keep it upright.  Oh, and the eyes are just fleece that I sewed on. 

Oh, and just for reference, here's what a Bob-omb looks like.

Enjoy!  I know he did!  Smiley
