Halloween Costume

I've been working on a Halloween costume for my boy, he's really into Spiderman and I FINALLY finished it!  So, here it is!

The shirt I had some stupidity issues with.  The spider was supposed to be an iron-on BUT I didn't know how to follow directions (ironed it on right side DOWN instead of up) and ended up screwing it up, luckily it was on the black spider so it was an easy fix.  I traced the iron-on with a black clothing sharpie, ripped off the iron-on, and colored it in.  Turned out good though.

Back of the shirt.  Wish the spider didn't have a white boarder and wish it were a little red-er, but it works.

The pants.  I LITERALLY searched EVERYWHERE for a pair of red sweatpants to crop for the bottom webbing with NO LUCK!  NO stores carry red sweatpants.  Some carried red sweatshirts but most carried almost every color BUT red...I was getting a little frustrated and just when I was about to just give up BAM there they were, only ONE pair at Wal*Mart, size 4-T but they work!

Front of the whole ensemble!  I found the Spiderman socks at the Target "Dollar Spot" awhile back and thought they would be perfect to wear with the costume.

Reverse side...only thing missing now is my little guy inside the costume...don't worry, those pictures will come too!  This was probably a little more expensive than a store bought costume but better for several reasons: 1) "it was made with love," 2) it's warm, 3) he can wear it comfortable as PJs if he wants, and 4) once I sew the blue arms and legs onto the red shirt and pants sweatsuit, he'll have TWO outfits instead of just one.

Hope you enjoyed this.
