I'll admit it, my son is a ham. So this year, I made him a costume that he could totally play it up.... a Little Elvis:

For this costume, I used Simplicity 2528 (out of print), confetti dot fabric, a handful of grommets, and hundreds of rhinestones. Here's a shot of the front and back details of the jumpsuit and cape:

All in all, a lot of work, but well worth it - my son totally enjoyed it!

What a wonderful idea for an extrovert! Those rhinestones must have taken forever.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

He's so cute!  And I can't believe you glued all those stones on by hand.  You're a saint!
