My boys are in LOVE with the movie FROZEN! They have named all of the members in our family one of the characters in the movie (luckily I am Elsa)! My oldest son has decided that he is Kristoff and my two year old is Prince Hans.
Boys costumes are so limited in the marketplace. They are either superheros or action figures. When my oldest told me that he wanted to be Kristoff, I HAD to figure out how to get it done…and get it done on a budget. I have to say that this is the most handsome Kristoff that I have ever seen…ummmhhh Disney….hello???!
I purchased the materials for his costume at Joann’s fabric. I used a cozy fleece that was light enough (just in case the weather was typical Texas) and light on my budget as well! The fabric was $6.99/yd (minus 60% discount)…yay! I only needed 2 1/2 yards across the two colors. The fur was the most expensive thing on his costume at $5.50 per yard.
The boots are actually rainboots (found at Walmart). I added the fur remnants around the top.
The hat was a nice little find from Walmart as well for $0.97!
The gloves were from a bin at Joann’s for $1.00. I added the fur to the gloves.
NOW FOR PRINCE HANS!
Ok…first of all this little boy DID NOT want to wear his costume today! But with the time that I spent making this little thing…that WAS NOT an option (and he looks so cute, too!).
Same as Kristoff, I purchased the materials from Joanns fabrics on sale. All three colors are broadcloth cotton and were on sale for about $4.00/yd. The ribbon trim was all from my stash.
Ok…and those boots (or spats)…are actually leather scraps with velcro to close them in the back (worn over shoes that we owned already). I made a small stitch across the bottom of the spats to make them fit over his shoes properly. When he put them on this morning and realized that they were made with Velcro…he told me “I don’t need bandaids for my legs! I don’t have any boo-boos!”…lol
OK…I LOVE THIS POSE!!!
Well…thanks for letting me share my kid’s Halloween costumes. I would love to hear your feedback.
