Aquaman and Green Lantern Costumes




This year for Halloween Atticus wanted to be Aquaman!

To make his little dreams come true I made him leggings, a shirt and a belt. I found a little devils fork and spray painted it gold along with some net and his belt!

Before

After

To make the Aquaman costume I drafted a simple pattern from a pair of baby leggings and stitched them up - it took maybe 5 minutes to create this awesomeness:


The fabric is from Spotlight

To make the top I used the same technique and copied a long-sleeve tee. I stitched the sequined fabric onto a knit fabric to stabalise it and then constructed it. I cut the neckline a bit flatter to suit Aquaman. I added a bias trim to the inside seams once I realised the cut sequins were lethal!

Green Lantern

For Atticus' Green Lantern Costume I made two simple symbols out of felt and stitched them onto an existing body suit and tee! I also made a little felt mask for him but that did not last long...
