I have alluded to the fact that I was making Parker a Star Wars costume and here is the final product, an Ewok. It was a pretty easy costume to make. I purchased a long sleeve brown thermal shirt and brown sweatpants from Walmart, then used them to make a basic pattern for the fur. They also add a barrier between skin and the scratchy back of the fur. Both the top and bottom close with velcro in the back I also got a small piece of orange flannel to create the hood/cape. The ears are made the same fur and are attached to another strip of fur on the inside to help them stand up. I used the ink from a marker brown marker to create smear marks that look like dirt. The final step was taking some suede cording and stitching the sides. I think it turned out pretty good and people seemed to recognize what he was.
He was done with trick or treating after a few stores. I was pretty crowded so he was getting a bit anxious.
He was much more at ease running around outside.
And dancing to the music!
It turned out to be a great day to be outside! We have at least one more event before Halloween so it should be a fun season! What are you guys doing to celebrate?
