Off we went to Hancock's in search of the fabrics needed. Luckily, I found everything I needed, and in about a day, whipped up his pirate costume. Inspired by the image below, my son was transformed into Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates, his current favorite show. Now, I didn't make the eye patch or the wristband (or glow sticks) or the rubber boots, though I did add a fabric cuff to the top of the rubber boots to give them that "pirate boot" look. I was quite thrilled at how well the whole ensemble turned out, and my son was equally thrilled to wear it last night, and to be transformed into his favorite character. He made quite the haul of candy last night, his pumpkin bucket was filled to the brim, and so heavy, the handle literally snapped into two parts.
We had quite the fun evening, and I'm hoping that you also had a fun filled Halloween!
