Wow, that was Super fun sharing my last Halloween idea...
I think I'll share another.
This was the first costume I ever created for my son...and let me tell you he was Ador-a-ble!
I remember thinking as Halloween was drawing nearer, "Hmm, what outfit should I make for my son, now that he's old enough to walk around and enjoy Halloween?"
One day I walked into Target and
quickly ran sauntered over to my favorite section.
The Dollar Section (who came up with this idea? Genius.)
There I found these, "Wizard Glasses".
The costume pretty much came together right then and there.
The breakdown of the outfit went like this:
After I purchased the glasses the only other thing I needed to buy was black material for the robe and some red felt and yellow felt. We had everything else already.
Using one of his jackets as a guide I sewed up the robe (making it up as I went).
Then I drew the gryffindor lion on yellow felt and glued it onto a red felt shield and hand sewed it onto the robe.
Cutest little Harry Potter I'd ever seen.
