Here is a DIY on how I made this costume for my son. My son is only 8 months old so the white beanie fit his mushroom head, if you plan on making this for someone bigger you might need a chef’s hat or white fabric. To see how I made the vest look at the video..
|You will need a cowboy hat or semi-sturdy hat with a brim that fits your person, and a cardboard cut out into a circle around brim of hat then cut the inside of the circle like this|
|Tape the cardboard circle to the hat|
|Stuff some socks with plastic bags and tape around the hat above the cardboard|
|get your white beanie with red felt circles sewed onto it and wrap it over the whole hat|
The Costume on my son:
|for Halloween I will let him wear a tan or white long sleeved shirt underneath his vest|
|So hard to get a good picture with this boy!|
|White pants are from the thrift store|
|Blue vest was a shirt or cardigan, I cut off the sleeves and added gold ribbon to the trim of the whole shirt using hem tape!|
|not the best work but he still looks like a mushroom head!|
|My little Toad!|
