Coolest Homemade Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Costume 10
Homemade Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Costume
When my son was younger he enjoyed dressing up as animals. This year (2007) he wanted a Homemade Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Costume.
I used a child-sized sewing pattern for a bunny for the main body of the costume. I cut freehand the ears, antlers, nose and hoofs. The eyes are made out of polymer clay. The nose is a sparkly red material that I stuffed and stitched closed.
The hoofs are synthetic leather that I glued onto mittens made out of the light brown material. The antlers are made of a brown suede material that was stuffed and hot-glued on. A wire hanger was bent and glued to the inside of the ears to keep them standing up. They were then hand-stitched to the hood of the costume.
Approximately 3 yards total in material: $20, time spent: 4 hours and him singing Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for days in October: priceless.
