I paired the hoodie with a pair of gray pants that we already had, but I think it would look just as cute with jeans, sweatpants, whatever.
Step into Some Freaky Fun
Okay, time for another costume idea. When I asked for simple Halloween Costume ideas a couple weeks ago, several of you mentioned wanting to make a shark costume. Sounded fun to me! And is just a variation of something you may have already seen floating around the web. This guy has an intimidating fin, to help him swim through dark ocean waters. Okay, that shark face may not be intimidating….. Yep, still need to work on a scarier face…. However, at the last minute, I decided to just make one real quick and add a quick dorsal fin on the back.
The eyes and teeth are sewn right onto the hood of the sweatshirt……and let that little face poke right through. And just think……those of you who live in super chilly climates, your little trick-or-treaters will be cozy warm in their costume! But just be sure to teach them a more ferocious stare! Like I mentioned before, the concept of this costume has been around awhile. But maybe there are others?? Then, cut two strips of white felt that are 2 inches longer than you hood measurement…..
Place the two strips together and sew a line of zig-zags along one of the long sides. Just be sure you keep the tip of each tooth lined up along one side of the 2 strips and leave extra room along the other side for attaching to the hood. Place your line of teeth along the inside edge of the hood, only allowing the triangles to show.
Pin in place and cut off any extra from the ends. Sew in place, with two parallel seams……making your teeth nice and secure to the hood. Then, center each eye on either side of the center seam of the hood. Sew around the white ovals, securing them to the hood. Next, cut a fin shape from your canvas. The size of this can vary……. As a guide, my fin is about 10 inches tall and about 9.
Now, cut open your pant leg from the extra pair of sweatpants, right along one of the side seams. Now, cut off the pointy tip of fabric and cut notches along the mountain curve the right side below and cut slits into the valley curve the left side below.
Not sure why you should clip the curves and corners?? Then, place a little batting on both sides of the canvas to help plump out the fin. Then, place the fin along the back of the sweatshirt, placed directly below the base of the hood and centered from each side.
Fold the raw edges of the fin under about an inch and then hand sew the fin to the back of the sweatshirt. Need help with hand stitching?? And one last thing……this sweatshirt set came with white lines along the legs of the pants. A ferocious, yet friendly shark……. Thank you for this! Looks really easy too. Do you think you can do one up for adults based on the chipmunks, Chip and Dale? I need to make a my little pony costume, thinking of a similar idea, using a sweater and adding yarn in the seam for the mane and tail.
