Here's my little grandson, Caden, in his Triceratops Halloween Costume I just finished making.  His outfit is made from orange felt, his eyes are glow in the dark ping pong balls and he's carrying a paper mache dinosaur egg basket...what else would a dinosaur use to hold all his Halloween goodies!

Step 1: Pattern Pieces

The first step to creating this costume was to make pattern pieces for his face, frill, tail, hands and feet, and then to cut them out of the orange felt. Here's the pattern and instructions I added to my blog. https://pegsgottado.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/triceratops-costume-pattern-and-instructions.pdf

The frill isn't stuffed. It just looks like it because there's a front and back.</p>
<p>What does it say on the frill pattern piece? I enlarged the image, but still have difficulty reading it.</p><p>Thanks!</p>
<p>The frill of the triceratop looks stuffed. Is it? How is it attached to the hood?</p>
How did you attach the horns?
Hi Kristin. I hand sewed them onto the head
That is an awesome costume! Do you have PDF's of the patterns?
Wow, that was fast...I just submitted this! Thanks for your nice comment. I don't have a PDF of the pattern pieces or written instructions...sorry.
