This was the first year I decided to make Halloween costumes. Besides the fact that I thought this would be fun to try, I am also super cheap. So, my goal was to refashion or use what I already had, rather than buying anything new for these costumes.
I present, Super Why and Mr. Traffic Light (inspired by Dana’s costume here)!
The above picture was taken at the zoo. I My son was disappointed that no one seemed to recognize that he was Super Why, so I did make some adjustments before heading out for adventure number two.
Super Why was made from an XL men’s green sweatshirt (the sleeves became pants, and I used the rest of the sweatshirt to make a new three-year-old-sized sweatshirt) and a men’s button-up shirt, plus the collar of a men’s T-shirt (the yellow around his “superhero underwear”).
Mr. Traffic Light needed something comfy, since most of his Trick-or-Treating was spent sitting in the stroller (as evidenced by the fact that most of my photos look just like this one!) I made a quick pair of fleece pants, along with a sweatshirt. A few felt/flannel circles, and we were good to go.
