Sunshine wanted to be Yoshi for Halloween, which I was excited about because there are already a lot of costumes to “be inspired by” (copy). 😀

Just like with Cosmo’s hydreigon costume, I made the basic hat with the template I made following Stitched by Crystal’s dino hat tutorial — it was even the same template as Cosmo’s because their heads are practically the same size. Yoshi’s features are all stuffed circles or ovals, and I guesstimated the sizes to make them by making round shapes with my fingers and holding them over the hat. heh! (oops, I took pictures on two separate days, and the lighting was obviously quite different.)

The shell is made of a large white circle that I gathered and stuffed around the edges to form the shell ring, and then a red circle (I can’t remember if it was larger or smaller or the same size as the white circle, oops!) that I gathered into a sphere, stuffed as a ball, and then squooshed down to stitch onto the white part to form the poofy shell.

Yoshi’s clothes are the Oliver + S field trip raglan shirt and Peekaboo Pattern’s Coastal Craze Baggies; I like that he can just wear these normally after Halloween! Husbo especially requested the brown boots so we bought them just for this costume; he also wanted to get long green socks, but those were surprisingly hard for us to find (so we didn’t hahaha)!

Sunshine kept asking for Yoshi’s egg (and tongue and tail! — but I refused those), so at first I was planning to make him a trick-or-treat bag in the shape of and decorated like a Yoshi egg, but that was stressing me out too much so I just made a regular stuffed Yoshi egg. I was super lazy and bought PlanetPlush’s Yoshi egg pattern, which makes a perfectly nice, throwable egg. (The kids have been having a lot of fun playing catch with it.) I don’t have an embroidery machine, though, so I had to figure out my own green dots. :D:D

I’m super thrilled with this costume, mostly because Sunshine loves it and wore each piece constantly as soon as I finished them! 🙂
