Ladies and gentlemen of the Craftster Kingdom, I present to you, Prince Charming  Smiley.





I started out with a basic white dress shirt and red workout pants and thanks to my good friend, Joann Fabrics, I was able to transform them into a princely outfit! 



The epaulets (shoulder braids) are cardboard covered in fabric with the braided trim glued on.  They velcro onto the shirt, so it's easy to remove them and toss the shirt in the washer.  The shirt also fastens with velcro, which made life easier as I was able to slip it on and off without much difficulty.  I used a tutorial (link below) for the basic costume idea and then added my own personal touches.

I wanted to coordinate with my son without making myself an entire costume, so I made myself a shirt instead Smiley.



As for Prince Charming, he is 2 years old and an absolute sweetheart.

Thank you everyone!  One of my greatest accomplishments with this costume was managing to get some good pics of my son in it!  He can't yet stand on his own (he was a 1lb 1oz micro-preemie and as a result, he can't stand or walk yet), so I had to stand him up against the chair and take the pictures quickly!  His smile brought the photos and the entire costume to life!
