Flynn Ryder Costume

We lucky we get to have two Halloweens every year. Our second one is in the summer at the Lake where the kids go to each camp site trick or treating because what kid can't use more candy.

I love Halloween in the summer because Saskatachewan winter kinda limit what you can be for halloween because it needs to fit over a snowsuit.

My oldest Daughter is obessed with Tangled. She has 2 different Rapunzels dress I have made her. I'll post those later. So for halloween at the lake she convinced her little brother to be Flynn Ryder.

I love this costume it turned out so cute he only looks unhappy in this picture because he hates to have his picture taken.

It was so easy to make and he still wear's his boots when they play pretend in the house.

The vest was made from a super old pattern my Mom had laying around and some blue leather like material. We sewed the vest together and then added a collar by folding a scrap over the top edge of the vest.

For the belt I use one of my husband weave belt and wrapped it his waist and used a leather punch to make a hole where he needs one.

The boots were orginally black and $0.99 rubber boots I got the Vaule Village, I used Krylon Brown spray paint for plastics and then I cut a strip of felt and hand sewed it around the top.

Here is a picture of both of them Dressed up and a close of his boots.

  3. Thanks Candace! It' was really fun to make and he still wears it all the time. The hardest part was finding the fabric for the vest.
