Costume by Diana K., Lake George, NY

This costume was a show-stopper! I used gold material to make the costume and spray painted for his socks, helmet, shoes and bat! I took a box and put self-adhesive tiles around it and then put a metal plate on the front of with the words “Most Valuable Player”.

My son took home a first place “trophy” for this costume and was the hit of the parade!

Total Spent: $40

Baseball Costume

I wanted to create a sport-themed Halloween costume for my son’s second birthday. I bought white cotton material, red fabric paint and fiberfill to stuff the baseball. I sewed the panels together to form a ball shape and added elastic around the neck and bottom for a good fit.

I drew the “stitches” on the baseball costume with red fabric paint and stuffed him with batting. A white turtleneck, sweatpants and a baseball cap completed the look.

He won first prize in our town’s Halloween contest.
