Coolest Squidward Costume

My son wanted to be Squidward for Halloween. There are no Squidward costumes to buy at all. So I had to make one. I am NOT a seamstress,however, I accomplished this task using my neighbors sewing machine.

I went and bought 2.5 yards of cotton material and used my sons jammies as a pattern to make the costume. He already had a brown shirt to wear over the blue Squidward “skin”/jammies (I sewed). He is not allowed to wear masks at school so, Squidwards head had to be a ‘hat’.

My husband helped with this. He traced Squidwards head on the material and then I sewed it and stuffed it with paper. I then attached elastic to it so my son could put it on is head. oh! I used felt for this eyes and eyebrows and glued them on with a glue gun and then the dots and mouth were drawn on with a marker. This took half a day to complete. 2 Weeks before Halloween!

Now I can go relax and watch a movie or something. My son is very pleased and told me “THANKS!” when the project was complete.

  1. Wow, I’m really impressed, that looks great!
    As far as the head goes though, you traced it onto fabric, stuffed it with paper and then attached elastic? could you explain a little more in detail how you made his head?
    thanks so much!
