My oldest son was so indecisive about a costume this year, at one point, he mentioned not even dressing up (unheard of!). In my search for Angry Bird costumes, I found this page with some cool cartoon spoofs of Angry Bird Superheroes. I knew instantly that I wanted to make us Angry Bird-like costumes, but of our favorite characters. As soon as I mentioned to my son that I would make him Angry Mario, he was all for it. I wasn't sure how my design would come out, but he was absolutely thrilled!
The tutorial was easy to follow, I opted to sew on all the features, so they would stand the test of time. If you ever make these, you can hot glue them (I still haven't even unpacked mine actually). I only sewed the front and back together at the shoulders, so it was kind of like a smock- but it was easy to get in and out of- it will make what I have to show you tomorrow all the more easy- so stay tuned for how to repurpose these costumes into something useful for your kids (homemade Christmas idea).
This was my kids' first real Halloween in the US and it was a total blast!
