Cosmo told us that he wanted to be a hydreigon for Halloween, which I thought was crazypants at first (too hard!), but then google and awesome cosplayers came to my rescue. Yay! Here’s Cosmo’s you-have-two-siblings-so-nothing-is-going-to-be-super-complicated hydreigon costume:

I used Stitched by Crystal’s dino hat tutorial to make the basic fleece hat, then attached fleece shapes for the nose, teeth, and frill thingy, and then used felt for the eyes. The frill thingy has Soft & Stable sandwiched inside to keep it upright.

I didn’t do anything fancy to attach the frill — I just stitched it onto the back (kind of wonkily). While I was working on this hat, I found out that one of our kiddie-sized basketballs was the perfect size to act as a hatstand!

Cosmo’s clothes are the Oliver + S field trip raglan shirt and Peekaboo Pattern’s Coastal Craze Baggies (which I found out about through Handmade Boy‘s fantastic versions on The Pattern Exam).

I worked on his gloves last — they’re extra heads; see ’em? I used 30 Minute Craft’s hand puppet tutorial for the basic idea, then added an extra layer for the mini frills. They’re not as fancy as fireflytwinkletoes’s mittens, but Cosmo’s been having fun with them!

Mike’s thinking about making cardboard wings for Cosmo, but my part is done! …except for the pokemon ball trick-or-treat bag. >_< hydreigon costume

  1. Wow! For a “not complicated” costume, you really put in a lot of work! This looks awesome!
