Costume by Connie H., Oviedo, FL

I asked my 2-year-old what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said "a fish". I found a fish pattern at a local store and used it as a guide.

Justin picked out the material – shiny stretchy polyester stuff (excellent fish material for fish costumes). I used 1-inch foam for the form. It was very difficult to sew together because getting the needle through the foam was literally painful. But my son wanted a fish and was the cutest fish anywhere.

Everyone loved his costume. I’m sure that he and his friends will get a lot of use out of the costume for a long time.
