Shiny T-Rex Costume for a Dinosaur-Obsessed 6-Year-Old Girl
When my daughter asked to be a T-Rex for Halloween, I immediately wondered how I was going to pull it off. I am not a seamstress. She wanted it to have a big head that covered her face and not be too scary or too cartoony. I made a form of 1 inch foam sheets held together with Gorilla tape and used spray adhesive to attach the amazing, shiny, snake-print fabric. I cut a thin foam sheet into triangles for the teeth and painted ping pong balls for the eyes. Then I attached them with hot glue.
She loves her costume and I am a happy mama!
