I think this is one of the hardest costumes I have ever made. It’s a little complicated and I really tried to figure out how to make the Beasty vest using a polo shirt since I’m not really an expert seamstress. (I taught myself how to sew, so I can make cute little things. 😀 )
And I don’t want to sew a whole vest for a one-time photoshoot.
Disclaimer: Again, this is a late post 🙈
When Nate turned one month, I was still under the Aladdin hype. I don’t want to use superheroes anymore because Niko already did most of the famous ones. So, I thought, why not go with Disney characters. 😀
Most of the materials I used for the costumes are felt. The blazer was sewn by me and I already have the white pants. I stitched a square yellow felt on the pants as a “patch” just like Aladdin’s.
I know I’m way, way too late with this post because I was MIA for almost half a year. I did a Thor photoshoot for Niko’s 11th month birthday.
Luckily, Niko had a black/ grey long sleeves available at home which I used as a base. The top has a print so, I covered it with black foam paper. I drew and cut a pattern (somewhat similar to Thor’s breastplate) from glittered silver foam paper. I used the back part (plain gray color) of the silver foam paper for the circles. The cap was also made of foam paper.
9 months passed by so quickly and in a matter of three months, my little superhero will turn 1.
It was too late for me to realize that I should have done the Spider-Man theme when Niko was still small, I mean, not able to rollover yet. You see, when I was trying to do a little photoshoot demo with him lying down, it was such a struggle. Even if I gave him toys as a form of distraction, he still managed to sit down over and over again. Fortu
I’m so excited for Halloween night. I have always been a lover of the dark.
I remember back in the Philippines, we used to celebrate October 31 with a small Halloween party and binge-watch horror shows with my cousins.
Anyway, back to my DIY Mermaid costume. Since I’m too lazy to look for a costume, I asked my closet to give me an idea. I hit the jackpot when I saw the pink top and green skirt that I haven’t used for a l
