Kids Halloween Costume - Dragon Cape & Mask

My 3 Little Dragons for Halloween - October 2016

So Shern requested to be a dragon for this year's Halloween. He wanted a dragon cape. But I suck at sewing and so I requested my mum's help to sew the dragon cape for Shern.

And the super awesome pho-pho who loves my kids to bits very happily sewed the dragon cape for them. Below is what I got from Pinterest to give her an inspiration.
And together we brainstormed on how to make it given the limited time and resources we had.

And she came up with these awesome dragon capes.
Of course she couldn't just make for Shern, she had to make one for Khye as well coz she loves them both dearly. My kids are soooo lucky, right, to have such a doting pho-pho!

I couldn't tell you in detail how she sewed that. (Hmm....I should ask her to be a guest blogger for this, shall I? :P)

Anyway, I made Dragon Masks to go along with the Dragon Capes.
For the Dragon Masks, I can tell you how I did it. It is sooo easy even for a noob at sewing person like me. Minimal sewing skills needed, I promise!

I browsed through Pinterest as usual and I got this free dragon mask template from Mummykins website.
Printed it out and then cut them according to the template.

Then you traced it on the pieces of felts and just cut it out accordingly.
And then what I did was I UHU glued the pieces of felt together to make the mask.

The green one's for Shern and the yellow one for Khye.
I used the colour according to the Dragon Cape colours that Pho-pho made for them. 


And then I did the easiest sewing I know, tacking the thread together on some of the parts to make sure they hold together, that was all. 

And then I sewed the rubber string behind like this. 

The end results of the masks are like this. 

 When paired together the mask and the cape, this is how it looks like...a complete set!

And then I added in baby Vern's dragon costume, a cape and mask too which I bought quite some time ago.


Let's see the kids trying out and posing with their Dragon Costumes!
