I wanted to share with you what I did for Baby Girl’s Halloween Costume this year. I made her a Chicken because I watched a video of a little girl walking around in a chicken costume and I thought it was beyond adorable with the feathers in the wind. The links in this post are affiliate.
These are the Items you will need:
Start by takeing both shirts and glue them together at the bottom. When you do this you want them both inside out and the one that is 1 size larger will be the one on the outside (this way when you flip it back “right-side out” the larger shirt will be the one visible) You could also sew them together at the bottom – I started by doing this but ended up just hot gluing it.
Once the glue dries you will then take the stuffing and put it between the shirts – to give it a cute little extra puff to it!
Next you will glue the feather boas all around the shirt to get it a free-flowing feather look. I just circled the boas around the body of the shirts and for the arms went straight down from shoulder to wrist.
You will want feet for your little chicken! What I did was put the felt over the shoes my daughter was planning on wearing and drew how I wanted the feet to look – then I cut it out (twice – because you will need 2 feet).
Finally I took some elastic and cut 2 small pieces and hot glued each end of the elastic to the felt (one on the right side one on the left) so it would almost go on like a sock and sit directly on top of the shoe. One thing I also did was take the glue gun and run a line down each ‘toe’ of the foot – just to give it some structure while walking.
Then all you need is a pair of pants that fits and you have a chicken costume!
I thought it was fun to make and it was the only way I was able to get the costume to look like how I wanted it to look!
Has anyone ever made a costume for their child before? What was it?
