My kid wants to be a zombie weasel for Halloween. Help me make it awesome!
My stepson, who will turn nine in mid-October, has chosen a Halloween costume. The idea is "zombie weasel." I have a vision, sort of, but I'm no professional seamstress. And he's afraid of being embarrassed, so he may refuse to wear anything that is not sufficiently funny and cool.
I think the monkey version (E) of this pattern is my starting point: Butterick 3238
. I'd add strips of torn fabric and artful dirt, and zombie makeup.
I would love
to have entrails hanging out, like the Zombabiez
baby costume, but I'm not quite sure how to go about making something like that. Butterick does not appear to have a pattern for "guts."
He doesn't want truly disgusting, realistic zombie guts. More like these stuffed animals
, cartoony and silly.
Any ideas for ways to add more awesome, or make it easier?
