Yes, school hasn’t started yet and it’s WAY too early to think of Hallowe’en, but one of the boys has decided he MUST have a sloth costume. (Thank you Toucan Rescue Ranch visit and probably my crazy see-something, want-something, genes.) Anyways, I thought if I researched early enough, I might either a) find a costume somewhere that looks like a sloth or b) find someone who could make one on etsy.
I did not find a sloth costume, but I did find a couple awesome things:
I was “Amelia Earhart” for a school project way back in my grade school days and I totally would have been all over this! (I still am a little tempted to convince the guys we need to be pilots just so I can buy and try to make them!)
And I’ve never ever seen animal jewelry for eyelashes;
I’m a little creeped out by putting things on my eyes, but I do think this is very creative, but I think more for Hallowe’en than to wear to work.
And I think my best hope is something like this LemonBrat store. They make vests that adults can where for cosplay(yes, I had to wikipedia it too.) but I saw a cool owl vest and I’m thinking of emailing them about the potential for a child-sized sloth.
And I found this site that also can make most kids’ animal costumes too, so I think there is a little hope. I can totally see this is now becoming a crazy mission and I’m glad I’m starting early. Anyone have any sloth costume ideas????
