Homemade Florida Gators Mascot Couple Costumes
When my kids were little I made them pretty elaborate Halloween costumes every year. This year when I said I needed them for my husband and me they said “you used to make the coolest costumes ever, but you’ve lost that touch.” Feeling this was a challenge, I told them to pick two costumes and I would prove to them I still had the touch! They picked, of course, their favorite team the Florida Gators and said we should be Albert and Alberta. When I was finished they were amazed and told me how awesome the costumes were.
I had to use a child’s dinosaur pattern and scale it to fit us, but overall it was pretty simple. I sewed and stuffed the costumes and then did the heads by designing them to look like a picture that I had printed of the two dinosaurs. We will be walking around in Chicago for a huge party we have to go to in October in these. Cannot wait to see people’s reaction! This was so much fun!
