Sam will be Woody (from Toy Story) because he loves Woody! We have a pair of jeans, a costume belt/holster and a hat so far. We NEED to get Woody shirt fabric, cow print fabric to make the vest and something to make the Sheriff badge - oh and some boots. Wow this sounds elaborate. So you might wonder, why didn't we just go out and buy a pre-made costume? Because they are really strange with all the parts sewn together and after working with Disney properties for 12 years I just thought we could do better.
I've contacted my work's plush factory in Asia for the custom printed Woody shirt fabric - because I can't find it online - anywhere! I've ordered cow print fabric from e-bay - the only place I could find it and I just need a flat gold sheet to make a Sheriff badge - or I'll just print the actual art on stiff paper.
Violette, will be a fairy pumpkin because she has a super cute orange outfit and we happen to have a pair of fairy wings that are just her size and I know Charlotte will squeal when we put them on her baby sister. We just need to cut the top off a pumpkin to make her a little hat.
I think in total, we've spent about $20 on costume pieces which is right where I wanted to be. The average price is $20 per costume so we've saved $40 by making our own.
I'm going out of town for 5 days so it's up to Husband to pull off this plan! Good luck! I'll be back on Monday to inspect and provide valuable insightful commentary.
