My son decided he wanted to be Spongebob for Halloween. I suggested to him that I make the costume and his head could be the Krusty Krab hat. Oh no, he wanted to “be” Spongebob.

I racked my brain thinking of different ways to make it and here is what I came up with. I used a cardboard box, I attached straps on the inside, like reverse suspenders. I used foam sheets for the body and features and red mesh for the mouth so he could see. I used bias tape to finish all of the edges.

It turned out great and I received tons of compliments, my son was embarrassed beyond belief when people kept stopping us, but of course I was very proud of it.
