DIY The Cat in the Hat Family Costume
This is Mostly DIY . The only costume that I bought was the Cat In the Hat Costume. I did glue ears onto the hat. The rest of the costumes and vehicles I made at home. The Bid Red Box for Thing 1 and Thing 2 was the kids wagon. I attached cardboard all the way around it. Painted it and added hardware (hinges) for added detail. I am most proud of the Thing-a-ma-jigger! This was my son’s trike with wood sticks attached to the pedals then towards the back on the back basket. This was the base that held the thingamajigger onto the trike. I used foam, and lightweight plastic fencing type material and glued red material onto it to form the shape of the vehicle. The arms of the thing-a-ma-jigger are plastic tubing bought at Lowes. Mickey Mouse Gloves stuffed with cotton. Lots of hot glue and spray glue used.
I made the Iron ons for Thing 1 &, Mom 1 & Mom 2, Dog 1 & Dog 2 with Photoshop and then printed them out and ironed them on each costume. Mom 1 & Mom 2 costumes are just pajamas with purple wigs. The twins hair was sprayed with blue hair paint and a lot of “got to be glued” hair product. Red long johns, crocks and mittens used to complete their costumes.
It was so much fun walking around the neighborhood. Everyone loved it!!
