A few years back, at the last minute (as children always do!) my first son said he needed a costume for his World's Fair, his country being Germany.  I managed to make these with a pair of men's dress pants from the Goodwill, some trim leftover from a flamenco dancer costume and some fabric paint ... the shirt is from the thrift store also.  Now the costume has been worn by all three of my boys (yes, I talked them into choosing Germany each time  Wink ) - here's a pic of the last one, Logan  (seriously, he does comb his hair - he even has a comb in the front shirt pocket!)



Do you know what it was like trying to convince three 6th grade boys that they HAD to wear this?!

And here's an action shot at the 6th grade World's Fair - 'cuz we're so cute -  Wink



Since Logan is the last of my kids, I gave the outfit to the teacher to be forced on the "too cool" 6th grade boys for years to come -  Grin

Those are awesome!! I remember doing that kind of thing in grade school too, except I had to be some strange "persian/turkish/indian" person because all the non-everyday clothes my mom had were old hippy-type things, lol. Roll Eyes Lederhosen would've been so much cooler!!

Absolutely fantastic! Little do they know how cool Liederhosen actually are. Hopefully someday they'll thank you for a rockin' costume!
