Eliza left a comment on the Babysavers Facebook page this morning asking for some guidance on how to make a superhero Halloween costume. She wants to make her own Wordgirl and Captain Huggyface Halloween costumes for her toddler and infant to wear together. Cute, right?
My other DIY Halloween costumes posts have been about tutus, and I admit, I’d never heard of Captain Huggyface before (although the name had me laughing as soon as I read it!). A quick Google search told me that he’s Wordgirl’s little sidekick on the popular PBS show.
Once I knew who these characters were, a little more research turned up some great tutorials for how to make superhero costumes and specific instructions for DIY Wordgirl and Captain Huggyface Halloween costumes! Here’s what I found:
- This Buzzle article has a list that will help you make a list of what you might want to include in your DIY superhero costume. Tools/weapons, headgear, and capes are all included.
- Of course, Martha Stewart has a great DIY Superhero Cape tutorial plus a nice resource on how to make your own Superhero costumes.
- Finally, I found excellent instructions for how to make Wordgirl and Captain Huggyface costumes! We’re talking totally kid-friendly, comfortable and affordable DIY costumes that little ones will love!
