Baby Mother of Dragons Costume

Baby Mother of Dragons Costume

Do you have a baby or toddler that you want to take trick or treating but they might not be able to walk for the whole night? Looks no further! We have the perfect solution: Baby Mother of Dragons with a Dragon Wagon! This costume was an absolute hit! Scroll through our photos to get some inspiration of your own!

Costume:

  • We took an old faux leather dress and resized it to fit our little Mother of Dragons. 
  • Underneath the dress is a long sleeve black turtleneck and leggings.
  • We bought the rope from Joann Fabrics to emulate the silver chain that the Mother of Dragons wears
  • We attached some ‘witching hour” furry fabric from Joann Fabrics to the silver rope
  • Black knee high boots
  • Dragon Necklace – purchased from Spirit Halloween Store

Hair:

We originally bought a platinum blonde wig, but little baby was not having it. So we cut a few strands off, braided two braids and attached all the pieces to white clip on bows. 

Dragon Wagon:

We converted a traditional red wagon into a Dragon!

  • Fabric: green croc/scale “witching hour” fabric from Joann Fabrics  to cover all the red material on outside of wagon & glow in the dark green tulle fabric for inside of wagon. Everything was attached with safety pins.
  • Dragon Head : Dinosaur Horse Stick from Target
  • Wings: cheap dragon costume set at Walmart

How to Make Encanto Isabela Dress

How to Make Encanto Isabela Inspired Dress

Are you or someone you know absolutely in love with Isabela from Encanto? Well we fell in love with her dress, but quickly realized a lot of dresses online only had printed images of flowers on the dress. We knew that we had to create our own look and show everyone just how easy it actually is to make. Our design has all the flow without a million itchy layers. You will absolutely fall in love with this dress!

Pattern Inspiration:

Using the above pattern package, we chose dress “D” as our guide to help us make a quick dress. We often take pre-made pattern pieces and trace out the size of the design we need on tracing paper and then make alterations as needed.

As you can see, Isabela’s dress has three layers, so we knew we needed to add an extra piece to the bottom of the Butterick pattern. Each layer also has a subtle slant, so we also made that alteration once we traced out the pattern pieces.

How to Make A Bruno Costume

How to Make a Bruno Costume

We don’t talk about Bruno…but we are going to talk about how to make a Bruno inspired costume! Also, read through and find our gift to you: a free downloadable pattern we created for Bruno’s poncho.

Poncho:

Fabric:

Muslin Fabric

In our quest for the perfect fabric for our Bruno poncho, we decided on Muslin. The reason for this unique choice is because Muslin is a nice lightweight fabric that is known to fray when cut. This is exactly what we were counting on in order to give the poncho a tattered look.

Poncho Dimensions:

Dimension Guide

To make things easy, we have created this template as a measurement guide, however you may need to tailor the dimensions a bit based on the height of the subject wearing the costume. If you do need to change the length, measure from the shoulder down to 6.5” past the knee. Multiply this number by 2 and you now have the custom length of your poncho. The rest of the dimensions should still work just fine. 

Poncho Design:

Bruno Hourglass Design

We recreated the design from Bruno’s poncho and used Cricut Design Space to cut out 28 copies of the image above in black iron-on transfer vinyl. Assuming you have cut the fabric following the dimension guide, fold the poncho in half (the way it will sit on the subject’s shoulders) and iron at the fold. This will help you determine the halfway mark. At the fold, line up 7 hourglass designs vertically (see picture below) on each side of the V-neck. Use the dimension guide to determine exactly where to place the design on the fold. Iron on the designs based on your specific vinyl’s instructions. Repeat on the back of poncho.

Hourglass Design Stacked Vertically

For the border lines around the hourglass design, we used 5/8 inch black ribbon (100% polyester). We attached it by sewing a Zig Zag stitch down the middle (see picture below). We expanded the sewing machine settings to the highest width and longest length for the zig zag pattern. 

Zig Zag Stitch

Alternatives to sewing the ribbon on:

  1. Using black iron on vinyl to create border lines and heat pressing at the same time as the hourglass designs.
  2. Iron on bonding tape 

      

You can iron on the ribbon with this tape and eliminate the need for a sewing machine.

Thank you gift for our supporters:

We have a gift for anyone looking to heat press their Bruno design onto their poncho fabric. As you can see on our own poncho, we had an extra line of circles underneath the hourglass, which made them double up when we alined multiple copies vertically. So we were sure to correct this error for our free SVG download. Click the link below to retrieve a free downloadable SVG of the hourglass design.

Poncho Tassels:

Last but not least, to complete the Bruno poncho, you will need the tassels at the bottom. We have made this task extremely easy by including an extra 6.5” of fabric at the bottom (front and back). Using a rotary cutter (preferably) or scissors, cut 6.5 inch vertical lines upwards from the bottom of the poncho. Cut each line 1/2 inch wide apart from one another (see photo). Repeat for back side of poncho.

Undershirt and Pants:

For the undershirt and pants, we chose not to custom make anything, considering these items are hardly visible underneath the large poncho. So we settled on some brown pants that we cuffed at the bottom and an old brown blazer with folded up sleeves. 

Sandals:

For our Bruno footwear, we took comfort into consideration and decided to forego the thong style sandals. We covered our thick sandal strap with a large piece of black fabric (with white iron on vinyl designs) and attached it with double sided tape.

Hair:

Creating the Bruno hair required a little bit of work because we went the cheap route and bought a crimped rocker wig from Walmart for $7.00. We chopped the mullet to the shoulders and used a spray bottle to tame the crimped. We then used a super hold hair spray to spray sections of the hair before rolling it into small hair rollers. We left the rollers in for a couple of days.

These were the cheapest hair rollers we could find on Amazon.

You are now ready to sport your amazing Bruno inspired costume!

Extra Tip: Ruffle the poncho neck hole and sides to make it look extra tattered for an authentic “worn” look.

Princess Peach and Bowser Costume

Princess Peach and
Bowser Costume

Need to find a creative way to dress your little one up for Halloween when they can’t quite walk yet? Look no more! Baby Princess Peach stole the show all night, in the comfort of her baby carrier.

Crown and Peach Logo:

Crown and Peach Car Logo:  We used craft foam sheets cut into triangles and hot glued onto yellow baby headband. Fake diamond rhinestones glued onto foam triangles.

Princess Peach Kart:

Peach Kart: We used our (very little) art skills and drew a Princess Peach Kart in pencil on an old Target cardboard box. We then cut out the car and then painted the entire car with white paint. This was to allow the other colors: black, pink, and silver to be more prominent. To connect the front and back portion of the car, we cut out a long section out of a cardboard box (width = 3 inches, length = 12 inches), bent it lengthwise down the middle and used a hot glue gun to attach one portion to the side of the car and the other portion to the front (and/or back) which connected the two together. 

Exhaust Pipe: Three styrofoam tubes (from Joanns) were cut and painted silver to create the exhaust pipe. 

Steering Wheel: We painted a flat styrofoam circle black for the steering wheel and used plastic rhinestones to decorate and give the wheel a nice princess touch. 

Shoulder Straps: To strap the Kart on to the person wearing it, pink ribbon was connected to the sides of the Kart to hang over shoulders. 

Costume:

Baby Princess Peach Costume: Super simple baby outfit. Pink dress and white pants. We cut a pink sheet to cover the gray carrier in front of the baby. Of course we have our handmade princess crown and finished off the outfit with pink slip on shoes. 

Not shown in photos: We used white ruffle baby socks as gloves. 

Bowser:

Bowser shell: Purchased turtle shell from pop up Halloween store and painted the rim white. Used cardboard birthday hats for spikes by painting white and used hot glue to attach to shell.

Clothes: Purchased plain yellow sweater and attached (opened) punk rock stud bracelets with hot glue around arms. Purchased plain green sweat pants.

Accessories: Punk rock stud bracelets

Mask: Purchased Bowser mask at pop up Halloween store. 

Not shown in photos: We used white ruffle baby socks as gloves. 

Conclusion:

As I mentioned before, this outfit was a hit while trick or treating! So good luck and be prepared to get handfuls of candy at each house. Please feel free to leave comments or ask any questions below!
