A Shark Costume

Jack wanted to be a shark for Halloween, so we went online looking for a costume. We came across these kits,and J & I both liked the idea of the sweatsuit. He wanted something more detailed though, so I used that as a jumping off point for creating my own. Jack wanted eyes and a tail for his shark, and I thought he needed some gills and those little pelvic fins towards the tail. Then I got a little creative and stitched some triangles on the fins to give it a bit of visual interest.

Jack loves his costume. For my first go at a costume, I’m proud of myself. Just don’t examine the stitching too closely. Or tell Jack that he kind of has an Elvis thing going with those pants- lol!

    Aaaah! Super cute! You are braver than I, the boys are going as “Sleepy Guys” so they can just be in their jammies…

    I loooove, love, love this, and Jack of course too! His costume is awesome! I remember the costumes my mom used to make for us, and those are the ones I have the fondest memories of.
