Hi, all. I’m visiting from Cooks Talk and was hoping someone could give me some advice.
I’m making my son’s Halloween costume. He’s going to be a bumblebee (he’ll be 7 months old). I purchased a fuzzy yellow sleeper and I’m going to cut the legs off, hem them, and sew black felt around it to make the stripes. He’ll wear black tights and socks, and I am using an old head-band to attach pipe cleaner antennae to, which will have little black pom-poms on the ends.
The problem I’m running into is attaching the wings. I have some stout, but light and easily bendable wire that I’m going to shape the wings from, and I was going to buy a pair of cheep white stockings and stretch one leg over each wing to make the wings. What I can’t quite figure out is how to attach them to him. I was hoping to use velcro in some way, but will it hold? He’s only going to go to about 10 houses (friends and relatives) with his Daddy, but I do want him to look cute for his first Halloween. Does anyone have any experience with costumes, and particulary wings attached to a small, wiggly person?
Any advice would be welcome.
