Now roll up your batting and pin it on the inside of the mouth. Whip stitch this into place.
Sew the tentacles onto the bottom, layering the longest at the back. Skip this step for the child sized costume. Make your husband try it on for a “fitting”. And place pins where you want the eyes to go.
Hot glue gun the eyes in place (4″ for adult, 3″ for child). Be sure to take the pins out 😀
Tell your husband that you need him for a second “fitting”. Really. You will need 4 pipe cleaners for each costume. Twist two pipe cleaners together and hot glue gun a 1/2″ Styrofoam ball to the end. Repeat. Here’s where you’re at.
Twist the two antennas together and hot glue gun them to the eyes. Paint on black pupils. And. You. Are. Done!
Linking to these fab parties!
