I didn't know what my kids were going to be for halloween.  I have this thing where I want them to have unique costumes just because I want them to stand out.  Last year I dressed up as a slice of pizza because I like pizza.  Which got me wanting to keep with the "favorite food" category.  I brought my boys to a children book fair and had lunch at a Japanese restaurant and that's when it hit me...I am going to dress them up as sushi!  Well, one is tuna sushi and the other is spam musubi.  I have come to realized that I live in a sheltered world where LOTS OF PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT A SPAM MUSUBI IS.  I'm tell you...you're missing out.

So here's how I made spam musubi:  I used black felt as seaweed and wrapped him around and sewed on velcro so it stays on.  The spam is made with the brick red (I assume that's what grilled spam would look like).  I just made a shape of a sliced spam (hey!  don't make that disgusted look...spam is delicious!) and filled it with polyfiber.  I also had to make white pants from scratch.  Do you guys know how hard it is to find white pants?  I couldn't find white pants for kids, so I made them.

Sushi tuna is actually easier.  Using red flannel fabric that I had leftover, I just made it the same shape as the spam musubi and stuffed it with polyfiber (seriously, I have a bag of polyfiber and it never seems to end.  It feels like it keeps on growing...).  To add the white lines that tuna sushi has, I  used white yarn and placed it on the tuna and sewed it on.  To keep him on, I chained white yarn and made it into backpack straps.  I also had to make his white pants.

The only thing that's not made is the white turtleneck shirts.  And without further ado, here's the pictures!





Side note, I made that beanie tuna sushi was wearing.  The yarn is called zombie bbq.  I just felt it should be worn on halloween Smiley
