My two year old loves Blue’s Clues so I decided on a Blues clue costume for Halloween. I went to the sewing store and bought a pattern for a basic dog costume. I bought light blue fleece for the base and dark blue for the spots. I had to make my own pattern for the ears and tail to look like Blue’s. It was very simple.
Total Spent: $15
I had a blue pajama, which was getting too small for my son so I decided to make good use of it and make it into a fuzzy animal. Then one day when my son was watching "Blue’s Clues" rather enjoyably, I decided to make it into a Blue’s Clues costume.
Of course Blue is usually light blue with darker spots but using what I had, I made his head and tail dark with light spots and body had dark spots. I fixed ears on the hood and attached a tail to the body and then fixed spots using a fusible web. It took me about 2-3 hours.
But I must confess that he was shedding his spots one by one. I also made the famous paw print like a badge. And he wore his Blues Clues shoes because it was raining and muddy outside.
