My February project included a Bamm-Bamm costume for my colleague’s son to be used for a school carnaval. We were actually planning to make him a parrot or a dinosaur costume, but then the school decided to go with the Flintstones theme.
I thought then maybe he wanted to be Dino, but he went with Bamm-Bamm.
For the outfit, I stitched a few triangular black foam papers unto the shorts. Noticed the biggest triangle? Well… I tried to cover up the minion print that came with the shorts. 😛 (Do you see the minion hair?)
I covered a blue plastic bat (since we can’t find a brown one) with a brown fabric and attached small triangles to achieve the Stone Age look. The cap was made from orange foam paper. I cut out the bone from a white felt paper. The body belt was an extra brown fabric that was sewn inside the shorts to make sure it won’t fall off during the Carnaval because we all know how active toddlers are. 😅
I made the costume in a matter of 3 hours. The sewing took time. I’m actually not good in sewing. I need to learn how to use a sewing machine like seriously. 😆
What’s your February projects? I just finished my son’s 11th month costume. And yeah… I forgot to post his 10th month photoshoot. I’m going to do that tomorrow. 😁
