Awesome Homemade Thomas the Tank Engine Costume
My son loves Thomas. Last year he was Thomas and this coming year he wants to be James.
The Thomas the Tank Engine costume is made from cardboard boxes, paint, and I used records as the wheels. The white on the wheels is white electrical tape. The red around the #1 is also electrical tape and I printed the #1 from my computer. Tissue paper is used for the smoke, and the smoke stack is an oatmeal container.
I put Velcro on the shoulders of his T-shirt and on the inside of the straps because it was front heavy and kept sliding down. He also had a small box on the inside that held the musical caboose that he pressed to get the Thomas music. I had a sign on the back that said “All Aboard”.
Needless to say he loved it and it cost about $6.00 to make because I had a lot of the stuff already.
