Oh man only 20 min to the deadline! 

I asked my 2 yr old what he wanted to dress up on 'corn'  ummm...ok.....are you sure?   'yes mommy, corn please'

So here it is!



Ok so the yellow peice is sort of a bloomers/onsie style covered in kernels.  It is a layer of felt, with a layer of jersey on top, sewn into squares, and then on the inside, each kernel was cut open, stuffed and then sewn shut.  Then to make it look more realistic, I painted each kernel different shades of yellowish colors. 

The crotch has a velcro flap, because he is 2 and has to pee every 5 min.  There is also elastic at the shoulders.

The green part is 4 big leaf shapes, w/ striped textured fabric on the outside, felt inside, with tones of lines sewn on for details.  there is a gap between the leaves for his arms on each side, and the bottom is elastic, again so I could pull it up for the potty thing!  The green also snaps to the collar area of the yellow.

The hat is jersey and again each kernel is stuffed and painted.  I used felt and ribbon for the corn silk.

I also made matching green patchwork shoes, because he only will wear the shoes I make him!

It was pretty hot for him to wear, sense it was 85 degrees here and it was like a down vest!  But he liked it anyways and wore it dispite getting sweaty. 

This one is in a bounce house - he is compleatly 'huskable', the green is a seperate peice!   Both the front and the back and the sides have corn kernals.

More pics:

This is before the crotch peice was added, I also cut in the shoulders so they would lay flat and against him instead of sticking out, added handmade bias tape all the way around, and painted all the kernels  - you can see the kernels stuffing better in this pic than others though!

and this is how he kept himself entertained while I sewed:

I made him a tutu!  I made myself a black and orange one too for my costume (pumpkin fairy)

And just for fun, this was his back-up costume, I made for the hot weather (can you tell what it is?)

This looks awesome! Believe it or not, I actually almost dressed as corn on the cob this year too, but I ended up being an octopus. Your costume looks great! Smiley

HAha. Great way to carry out the corn costume! And smart on making the corn husk removable for hot weather. - In the weather here, I'd need an extra husk! Wink

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle!  So cute!  I especially love the extra touch of strawberry with a hole for the treat bag.  Both costumes are so well done and adorable.  Great job!
