Couldn’t get the project posted in time for the contest, but here are my sons’ halloween costumes. They are Curious George and The Man in the Yellow Hat (Ted, to anyone who has seen the movies). They had a great time and even won a prize for their costumes. I used several patterns to make these costumes, including New Look 6932 (heavily modified from original), WildThings by Wild Ginger software, the Totally Terrific Tie Tutorial, I modified the kid’s spats pattern from BurdaStyle for The Man in the Yellow Hat’s boot spats, and I drafted the hood, ears, and chimp feet for George myself. T kept fiddling with his hat so the brim looks wobbly, but it will stay straight if left alone.
Primarily made of polar fleece. Tie created from quilting cotton and fabric paint markers. Spats for Man in the yellow hat made of pleather and fleece.
