Homemade Little Boo from Monster's Inc Costume

Every time our daughter wore her hair in pigtails, people mentioned she looked just like Boo from Monster's Inc, so this year was the perfect opportunity for her to be Boo for Halloween!

I looked online for patterns or ideas, but only a few came up and I wasn't into improvising. So off to the fabric store! My daughter is 2 yrs old, so we didn't need much fabric to begin our Homemade Little Boo from Monster's Inc Costume. We bought:

Monsters Inc. Costume- 1.3 yards of purple for the body part
- some gray metallic shine fabric for the arms (1/2 yard)
- cheap gray fabric for lining the body and hood
- iron-on batting to quilt the body and hoodie
- Velcro to close the costume on the back
- 2 Styrofoam balls and plastic tape to keep the hood open and stretched.

I cut a rectangle for the body, quilted it and added the horizontal lines as in the original. We then made the arms, improvising as we went along. I cut some slits on the body and pinned the arms to it. Luckily it worked out perfectly. I'm sure a more experienced seamstress would have done it more easily.

To create the hood part, I used paper towels and tape and made a mold to make sure I was cutting the right pieces. Somebody recommended I buy muslin and make the costume out of that first to ensure no mistakes, but I ran out of time. The mini paper toweled model worked fine.

Final details included:

- buying the yarns for the hair and sewing them inside the hood as I was closing the pieces.
- attaching the eyes with an old metal hanger. (My hubby recommended I add a spiral to the hanger's tips to screw the eyes to and prevent them falling out. Clever!)
- finding the hair accessories for my daughter, and
- adding shoulder straps to the costume so it wouldn't slip off.

My little one was totally into it. I'm not very experienced with the sewing machine, so it took me aprox. 10 hours to make it. One tip: don't wait till the week before Halloween to make it! It was a super fun though.
