Here is my little Astronaut. He loves Space. Ever since he was 2 he has wanted to be a real astronaut. So a few years ago I made him one.
I started by making the white jumpsuit. With McCalls pattern #4951.
For the boots covers, hat, tech bib and wrist cuffs, I purchased colored vinyl. I found most of mine at Hancocks fabrics. They had a huge assortment of vinyls. I used the pattern above to make the wrist covers and boot covers.
I kind of free handed the tech bib. I diy button covers for the colorful buttons and I purchased real NASA patches to add to the costume.
For the had I used a basic cape hood pattern and altered it a bit.
To make him a little more astronaut I made a jet pack. Unfortunately the 1 photo I took of it did not work. I am super bummed. So I will have to explain a little. Then you use your creativity to make your own. I stated with a medium rate mailing box. I punched a hole in the top and the side. I attached a curtain rod ring to the side and threaded clear tubing through it and then the ends of the tubing into the holes. I also added a string of battery powered Christmas lights to the tube. At night it looked awesome. Then I just used house hold items to make the gadgets and gizmos on the box.
I used reflective webbing to make the box a backpack and a belt. That way he could be seen ant night and look super cool.
I hope your Halloween costumes are coming together. I would love to see them.
