Luke is an 8 month old living in Wichita, KS. He has been crawling for 2 months now, and has quite the cute growl…..that was the inspiration for this costume!

His mommy made him a lion costume, complete with faux fur body suit, tail and mane. The feet were reinforced with quilting batting to make them stand up better, and the ears and feet were given extra touches with contrasting felt. His tail was stuffed with polyester fiberfill to make it stand out.

And, the best part…the mane and end of tail were adorned with ribbons of 3 colors to make a full fluffy lion. Each had to be stitched on with 2-3 stitches to avoid being pulled off by Luke, but it was well worth the effort.
