Homemade King and Queen Couple Costume

I made the dogs costume using a pattern for the outfit but the chair I just took foam and covered it leaving a hole in the back so my dog could fit through. I made fake legs and bought some cheap shoes. I just made my own pattern for the legs. I stuffed them and pined them to the chair. His shirt covers the pin. He acts the part very well.

My daughter Is the Queen riding a flamingo. I don't know why but she wanted to ride a flamingo so I made it. First I made a pattern for what I thought the shape of a flamingo would be. I doubled it and sewed the head noun to the bottom of the neck. I then cut a piece of material to fit inside of the body part . This way my daughter could fit in the flamingo body. I sewed the back butt aria first then I sewed the inside leaving an opening for the stuffing. I then aed the face and covered it with pink boas. I hot glued the feathers on. I made the queens outfit from a pattern. I bought house shoes for the flamingos feet. I also made fake legs out of hose and stuffing I hot glued some cheap shoes on them.

That's it, we had a great time showing off our Homemade King and Queen Couple Costume. Our dog loves being a king!

Coolest Medieval Armor Hallowen Costume 5

Medieval Armor Costume

Medieval Armor Costume

This Medieval Armor Halloween costume worked out great for my son! I was trying to think of what flexible material there is that is metallic looking, and thought of those sunshades that go in your car window. I picked one up at the end of the season for 75% off, so I only spent $2.50 for the entire costume!

First, I used a seam ripper to remove the edging that went all the way around the shade. Then, I cut it to the width of my son's shoulders, leaving a little overhang. I cut the length to just below his waist, so he could move around easily. I cut a neck hole with a slit down the back so he could get his head in without tearing it. I did some stylized design around the sleeve area. I re-attached the same edging that I had ripped off before using my sewing machine, which was a little tricky around the neck, but I was successful. It came out looking like a manufactured costume!

I used three straps up wide elastic on each side to attach the front to the back, but yet make sure it had some give to get it on and off easily. It worked like a charm! He just wore a black shirt underneath.

I just made this costume for my 5 year old son and it was easy and turned out awesome!! Thank you so much for the idea. My husband just happened to have an old sun shade in the basement that he bought but never used and the kids (I have 3 boys) always played with it, and when I saw the picture, I knew I had my costume figured out! Thanks again!!

We have been invited to the Night of the Notables where my son will have the role of a Sir Walter Raleigh. (It's a school activity,lol). He's getting upset with me bec i don't have any idea on how to make a costume for him, buying is definitely not an option. I'll make this accdg to your specs. Thanks so much.

Great costume!

This is such a great idea! I am a music teacher and my 5th graders put on a musical every year...this year I need 25+ knight costumes. I was trying to figure out how to make them easily and cost-effectively when I found your post. I had just seen sunshades at Dollar Tree today, so it looks like I'll be doing most of my boys' costumes for cheap! Thank you so much for sharing your idea :-)
