Halloween Costume Contest 2015


My son wanted to be a porcupine! I found some wonderful black and silver fur and sewed a body suit type outfit and head piece. I used black foam strips that I painted white stripes and these served as quills. I attached half of them with nylon thread, but when I ran out of time, I hot-glued the rest. (Burned my fingers 50 times!) This was so fun and a hit among his friends.

    How unique and wonderful to read that there are kids out there who choose to be different. I love the costume.

    I love it! You did a great job! When a kid gets his heart set on a specific costume, it can be a tall order! You came through with flying colors!
