Introduction: SKYLANDERS Focus on JET-VAC

This costume is based on the popular game SKYLANDERS, Jet-Vac was cheap to build but very time consuming....but my son loves it and that makes it all worth while. The most important thing when building a costume for little kids is comfort, if the costume is uncomfortable the child will only want to wear it for a short time. This dress rehearsal gave the kids time to let me know if there was anything that needed to be changed or altered. It is very disheartening when you spend all the time required to build a costume only to have it so elaborate that the child cannot move and doesn't want to wear it.

I always start with the helmet, it is typically the most difficult and once you build that portion it gives you scale to the rest of the costume.

Always take measurements then add an inch or two. It is typically easier to take away then to add.

I am pleased with the way this costume turned out and my son is super excited. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

    You are an awesome dad. I can't wait to make stuff like this for my son. Right now he's 2 1/2 and into tractors and big machines... but maybe in a couple years.
