A few months ago we were in the car and my oldest announced that he wanted to be a skunk for Halloween. Kind of awesome and pretty random. But I just knew he would change his mind. Then a few weeks later he asked if I made his skunk costume yet (smart boy). He is very in to super heroes so I was still thinking he would change his mind, but then on a trip to Joann’s, he pointed out fabric that would make a good skunk costume. I guess he was serious.
First, I bought a black long sleeved shirt and some black pants. Then I got some back and white fur and thought about how it would all come together. But I spotted this post from Ari where she used Sarah’s Bimaa Pattern to make a Viking Hoodie for her adorable son. Both of these ladies are super talented InstaGram friends of mine :) I knew it would be the perfect skunk head. I already had the shirt so instead of making a new one, I just did a little hacking!
I used the pattern for the hoodie part. I added my little skunk ears before sewing the panels together. Then I used the Bimaa pattern to make a new neckline so the hoodie and shirt would match up correctly. Yall, this pattern is awesome!
I cut a strip from the white fur and sewed a hem around all four sides, that fur is messy business. I pinned it right down the middle and sewed it directly on the shirt (before I added the hoodie).
For the tail I used the fur, batting and a clothes hanger so it stands up! I just used a piece of elastic for the band around the waist and that is what the tail is sewn to.
The best thing is this costume is really comfortable. It’s soft and cozy and I had to bribe him to take it off after out photo shoot!
So there you have the skunk. I love how it turned out! Stay tuned tomorrow for his brother’s costume reveal, it’s another woodland creature… any guesses?
