My son needed a Toy Story themed costume for Spirit Week. We started at the fabric store and bought movable fabric board for the bottom (to aid in the appearance), purple velvet fabric for the body and red/gray metallic fabric for trim. I used Velcro instead of zippers or draw strings, which was a mistake because it kept peeling off. I used a giant safety pin to help gather the cape around the neck (this worked great).
The use of the board eventually proved to be complicated because it was difficult for my son to walk in. This is his Homemade Evil Zurg Costume.
