This year my husband and I rocked out our favorite Looney Toon characters Wile E Coyote and the Roadrunner. I made his costume first out of 5 yards of fleece. I made some elastic-waist pants and a fleece shirt. His coyote head started with a baseball hat, cardboard and foam. I sewed and glued the fleece around this and stuffed it with poly fill to build his head and sewed the ears into the seams.

I made his feet with foam that I shaped into toes and covered with fleece, he pinned these on his sneakers. I made a long tail stuffed with polyfil and pinned it on the back of his pants. For the Acme TNT I used the foam and glued it into a roll and glued red and white felt on for the lettering, and I inserted orange pipe cleaners to look like sparks coming out of dynamite. I glued in cord so it would hang around his neck.

For the roadrunner I used the same method with a baseball cap and foam and felt glued on. His big mop feather has a piece of stiff cardboard and polyfil tightly stuffed so that it would stand up straight. I made a shirt and cut the sleeves with a feather edge and I made shorts to wear over my yellow tights.

The feet are also foam with felt glued on. The tail has on long piece of cardboard sandwiched in between foam and is pinned on the back of my shirt to stand up straight. Last, I made the classic signs that they hold up since neither of them speak in the cartoon.

We had a blast making these Homemade Wile E Coyote and Roadrunner Couple Costumes and took a lot of cameo pictures!

I remember watching the Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner cartoons as a kid. I still enjoy the cartoons to this day.
Neat costume idea.

So many little girls want to be Olivia that I just had to go ahead and make one. This Olivia the Pig Costume is a three piece costume.

I started off making the headband ears. I purchased the headband. Then, got out the pink felt and cut out and sewed the ear shapes together. Three layers! Then, I wired the ears to the headband and covered it. The final step was some hand painting to give them definition.

I got the best and hard to find black and white striped jersey fabric. I made the leggings, trying to match up the stripes as best as possible. NOT EASY!!! They have an elastic waist.

Then comes the long, arduous task of the dress. This is a fully lined dress, so your creation time will be double that of making the standard dress.

I looked for the right kind of red, I settled on something wrinkle-resistant. Then, I went for the black cotton with small dots. It looked great to me. I cut out all of the pieces to make my sailor dress. It's got a vintage look that I love.

I made the red dress, then the dotted dress. Then, I made the collar. I appliqued the stars to the collar. Then, it was time to sandwich them together. I sewed, flipped and voila, the perfect Olivia dress.

I type "voila" lol, but really, it takes a lot of hours to make this Olivia the Pig Costume.

Hope you like it!

Always fun trying to come up with a new and different costume for one of our five children. Keenen loves hockey, but we wanted something different then a player... so we used the old CBC cartoon Peter Puck.

This homemade Peter Puck costume was made out of felt, foam and core board so it was very light... He loved it!
