New Year's - a favorite children's holiday. And without a carnival costume here is indispensable. An interesting idea is to dress a child with a spider. You can find such a suit in a special store, but it will cost a fortune. Without special difficulties you can make an outfit at home. The cost of its production will be minimal, but the created image will please the child and surprise the people around with its originality. Below is a description of several variants of the carnival costumes of a spider.
Option one: the most simple
How quick and easy is it to make a spider costume? To do this, you will need clothes of dark tones from the wardrobe of the baby: a sweatshirt with a hood and shorts or trousers of sports cut. In addition, 4 pairs of gloves, preferably of light shade, a black knitted hat and dark comfortable shoes will be needed. If the bottom of the outfit is represented by shorts, then they should be put on white tights or leggings.
The most laborious in this case will be the process of making the feet. There must be six. Spider legs should be made of black fleece. As a stuffing, sintepon will be used. Inside each foot along the entire length should place the wire. Thanks to this, the legs do not hang lifeless. On the contrary, they can be given the desired position. At the end of each foot, a white glove must be worn. The other end of the spider's leg is sewn to the sweatshirt.
On the hat you need to attach the spider's eyes. They can be made of large buttons and if desired, decorate with tinsel.
Your little black spider is ready to surprise others.
The second option: cap + cape
What kind of outfit can you do with your own hands? It can be a suit of a spider, the main components of which will be a cap and cape.
The cylinder can be made of cardboard. After coloring the headdress in black, you need to decorate it with a web, which can be painted with colors. It will also be interesting to look at the cap of a voluminous fuzzy figurine spider, made, for example, from thin woolen threads.
Next, you should borrow from a wardrobe of the child a dark vest or a sleeveless jacket. To the front of this garment you need to sew a "spider in the web" bought in the store or made with your own hands.
The cloak should be made of black cotton fabric. You can carve this element of clothing as a skirt-half sun. To do this, fold the fabric in half and draw a semicircle from the corner. Then you need to process the bottom of the product and sew the ties to it. To decorate the cloak, you can use white wool threads. They should be sewn to the cloak, imitating the pattern of the web. Instead of these threads, you can use a braid or a lace of gold or silver.
Option three: with a backpack
Another element, with which you can make a suit of a spider - a children's backpack. If you use this item, you will end up with an image of a sinister spider-cross. A backpack behind the back of the baby will mimic the abdomen of this insect. The knapsack must be filled tightly with cotton or foam rubber, covered with a cloth of gray or black and draw or paste a cross.
The spider's costume must be supplemented with six paws. They should be made of wire, which in several layers will be wrapped in knitting threads called "grass".
On the head of the child you can put on a hat with funny spider eyes, which can be made from cardboard or buttons.
It will be interesting in this case to look cobweb, which is recommended to draw on the cheek of the baby with the transition to the neck. To create such a pattern, you should use the paint for black, white and silver colors intended for children's makeup.
Method four: using a clothesline
The highlight of this attire will be a cloak, which you need to weave from the clothesline. This element of clothing will depict a web. Its appearance resembles a fishing net with large cells. The top of this improvised cloak should be sewn to the waistcoat from the wardrobe of the baby. At the corners of this cape it is recommended to make loops for fixation on the wrists of the child.
In order for the suit of the spider to look convincing, it is necessary to complete it with six paws. You can make them out of knit pantyhose and fill it with sintepon. Inside, you should insert the wire - then the legs can be given the desired position. Another option - do without such a fixation. Then it is recommended to sew the ends of the paws to the mesh cloak, and they will be fun to move along with the cloak.
Under the raincoat should wear a black turtleneck, which should be decorated with spider patterns. For this purpose, you can use the same clothesline. This will make the image harmonious. The bottom of the outfit can be represented by shorts or pants.
You can complement the suit with a cap or a cylinder with eyes. Such headgear was already mentioned in the description of previous orders.
5 years is exactly the age when the baby already wants to feel like some superhero, for example, Spiderman.
In order to make this outfit, it is recommended to take the ready-made suit of elastic blue fabric as the basis. This can be clothing for cyclists or divers. Using shreds of blue and red elastic material, you need to complement the outfit with appropriate elements to bring the image of your little Spider-Man to the screen.
After that, you should decorate the costume with golden and silvery threads, glitter to create a cobweb simulation. You can also use special colors for the fabric.
A mandatory attribute of the Spiderman are red glasses or a mask. It is recommended to make them from an elastic material of the appropriate color and apply a black paint pattern in the form of a web. As a result, you get an original accessory, which will be very happy with your little Spider-Man.
