Peter Pan's Shadow Costume

For Halloween this year, Blaze decided that he wanted to be Peter Pan's shadow. The only things that we had to buy for the costume were the bodysuit and the feather. The rest of the stuff we already had at home.

For the shirt, I dyed the silk shirt that Blaze had worn for a Robin Hood costume when he was 8 years old and I cut the sleeves on the shirt, so that they had points. It's really amazing that the shirt still fits, but I had made it intentionally oversized originally.

The elf boots were made from felt sewn onto a pair of house slippers that my mother had given to my husband, but that he had never worn because they were too small.

The hat was made from the same black felt that had been used to make the boots and the dagger is just cardboard covered with black puffy paint.
