Several Canadian bloggers asked me about the concierge part of FeeFiFoFun Costume Concierge. My forté is combining products from my web shoppe with unique DIY. Accordingly, I designed costume themes for each family based on how much they wanted to take on. For Hannah Spray of The Big To-Do List, a Woodland Creature family was the chosen theme starting with an adorable Ewok costume for their young daughter.
Easy Ewok Costume
Hannah is a busy writing mom living on an island with limited access to shopping. Also she and her blogging Fans are green fans. Therefore, we both agreed to mostly ready-made costumes with some DIY.
I’m handy with a glue gun, but can’t sew. So sometimes thrift stores are just the ticket. When I found an $8 used monkey costume, I knew it would make a perfect Ewok costume DIY.
Don’t freak out, but I cut off the legs of the monkey to make a poncho style costume. Ponchos allow for diaper changes and easier walking for toddlers. In addition, it takes longer to grow out of. The cast off pieces can be used as leg warmers for extra furry cuteness.
Luckily woodland creatures are elemental, so the Ewok costume did not need to be precise. With beige felt from Michael’s Arts & Crafts, I cut three panels and stitched them to form a hood. I cut an oval out for the face. Finally, using a large needle and sloppy stitches, I added colourful yarn scraps to the hood.
Woodland Creature Family
In the end, Hannah was thrilled with what I shipped out for her family. She can’t wait to share the big reveal of Ewok costume with Mother Nature and Daddy Satyr on her site for Halloween.
