I wanted to start by apologizing for not having any pics with my 13 month old Zachary wearing this costume but I just don't believe in putting my children's photos on the internet !! I assure you he was cute in it, with his very blond hair and blue eyes and tendency to stick everything in his mouth, he actually does remind me of Pac-Man  Smiley

Ok. So first of all I bought a black t-shirt and black jogging pants to complete the outfit. I was inspired by those cool pac-man t-shirts you can buy everywhere.

I took a few screen shots from the game from over the years and took to the shirt with some fabric glue. I did it all freehand. Then I filled in the walls with blue fabric paint.

I then took some strips of auto-stick velcro and cut them up into little squares to make the little white pac-dots.
I also kept some of the opposite side of the velcro strips and painted the back black so that the pac-dots "disappear" after Pac-Man passes by.

Pac-man and his enemies, Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde, are made from felt and are slightly stuffed. They have velcro on the back to stick to the pac-dots as they go by. (Special thanks to my sister Chellum, who helped out with these little critters!!)

So basically, Pac-man and the ghosts can really move around across the shirt just like in the game !!

This is so much better than the pac man costumes I made for me and my husband five years ago!
