Here is my homemade Incredibles Halloween costume! D loves to "Dash" around in it. The shirt and pants were about $20, but he can wear them all winter (and he needed new clothes). I just spent a couple dollars on everything else, so it turned out to be a frugal Halloween costume. Sometimes homemade costumes end up costing more, but not this one!
- Shirt and Pants from Target ($13, but he'll be able to wear them all winter)
- Incredibles logo patch from Etsy ($6)
- black swim knit fabric ($2)
- black felt ($.34/sheet)
- orange felt ($.34/sheet)
- bit of black elastic
- bit of hook-and-loop
- Daddy's black socks
Shirt: used an iron on patch for the Incredibles logo, because we couldn't find an Incredibles shirt for sale anywhere. I did, however, find a tutorial/free pattern for making an Incredibles logo using felt and fabric glue. That would be a more frugal homemade option.
Black underwear: I used a pair of underwear as a pattern and cut out a front and back from the black knit fabric. I made it big so it would fit over the pants, which are fleece. I sewed the sides and bottom of the underwear together - that's it.
Mask: I drew a few mask shapes on paper until I was satisfied with the shape. I just held it up to Dalton's face to make sure it was a good fit for him. Then I cut out two from black felt and sewed them together around the outside and the eye holes, inserting one end of black 1/4" elastic between the layers on each side.
Orange Belt: I just cut a long strip of orange felt, and sewed on a bit of hook-and-loop tape to hold it in place. This is felt I already had in my stash. If you use a sheet of felt, you might have to piece together a strip.
Black "Gloves": I cut a rectangle of the black knit fabric just wide enough to stretch around his arms. Then I sewed the long sides together. You could do the same to make "boots" but we had these black socks on hand and we're going to use those instead.
