Little Cave Man

This post is WAY overdue!  It is from Halloween last year...and seeing as how Halloween is only 5 months away....very overdue.  But, I just wanted to share the costume I bought/made for my son.

The dinosaur was purchased.  When I saw it I thought it was adorable.  The child's feet go inside the dino's back feet so the dino actually moves.  However, when I got to thinking about it...that left the "dino rider" without feet.  So, I thought..what would be cuter than a caveman riding the dino?  I'm not a I upcycled.  I bought a pair of leggings and dyed them tan and stuffed them for legs.  I did sew some felt feet and glued on the toenails.  I wanted the feet to be kinda oversized for a more comical look.  I bought a long sleeved cheetah print dress, cut a zigzag on the bottom and cut the arms off.  I also cut some wrist and ankle wraps from the sleeves.  Then I made a necklace and added bones to the wrist wraps.  I love how it turned out!
Here are a few more pics.

  1. That is just too cute! At first I thought he just had a caveman costume. Didn't realize the dinosaur was part of the costume. I love it.! My granddaughters have a big stuffed dino that looks like that.
