Shark Attack!

A long time ago, before we had the house rebricked, I showed you a tulle circle skirt with crystals on it.  I’m not going to show you the top portion of that outfit today, but I’m going to show you what Mickael and Caleb will be wearing while I’m wearing the skirt (and the top you haven’t seen yet).

Mickael and Caleb are going to be sharks (and yes, we’re going to a Halloween party)!  Neither one of them really gets into Halloween, so when we were picking our costumes, I knew they needed something simple.  Then I remembered seeing this tutorial a year ago and thought it would be perfect.  They won’t have matching sweat pants, but can wear the hoodies with shorts or jeans depending on how cool it is Halloween night.  These were so much fun to make!  I used fleece (like polar fleece, not sweatshirt fleece) for the teeth and eyes instead of felt and I didn’t stuff the dorsal fins like she did in the tutorial because I wanted them to fold over flat if Mickael and Caleb sit down.  I ended up basting batting to the plastic canvas and then covered that in the fin fabric (which was a matching t-shirt).  The whole thing went together pretty quickly and was actually a lot easier than I thought it might be.

Of course now, we’re going to need a bigger boat!

This is great. Next year you can remove the dorsal fin and they can go as plague doctors.
