Last year for Halloween my daughter wanted to be her favorite super hero Word Girl, (from PBS
) and her little sister, being too young to complain, was the loyal sidekick, Captain Huggyface. The costumes were easy. and inexpensive. For Word Girl I got red sweat suit from walmart. I cut out the logo from yellow fabric, and glued, then zig zag stitched it to the shirt. The cape is a rectagle of yellow fabric, with ties sewn on. The hood is two quarter circles of felt sewn together, with elastic for the chin.
The same is done for captain huggyface. Red shorts over blue leggings. Logo sewn onto the shirt, and hat sewn, but with added ears, made out of tan felt and stuffed.
The costumes were warm, and easy to manuver in. Also, the kids were very excited when properly recognized. There were about 20 Wonder Womans downtown, but only one WORD GIRL!
