My son's costume is done!!
(give me a moment while I victory dance around the family room)
Ok. If you missed the first part of this costume post, you can find it here: DIY Iron Man costume
As you may recall, the only thing I had left to do on the costume was cover his
hands and add the blasters.
Well, today my son and I went grocery shopping,
and I finally remembered to look for gloves to finish off his costume.
Well, I found them!
They came in a 2-pack for 97 cents!
It was so easy to whip them up, it only took about 15 minutes.
So here are the gloves before...
Using white felt scraps I had laying around, I cut out two circles.
My husband and son then told me the blasters had blue in them as well, so I drew a ring around the outside edge with a blue marker.
I was going to use a hot glue gun and just glue the circles on, but I figured this way was less 'permanent'.
So, using a needle and thread I just hand sewed around the circle.
Just big stitches, nothing fancy.
A nice close-up for you :)
"Mom, this is how Iron Man blasts!"
Ha ha I love the seriousness :)
