Scorpion Costume

A little while back I got an odd request from my sister Tiffany. She wanted to know if I could make a scorpion costume for my nephew Carter. He is the mascot for my other nephew, Gavin's football team. After throwing around some ideas with Tiff we came up with the plan. I made a pattern and completed and shipped the project within a few day.


What do you think? Does he look like a scorpion? I used black jersey knit fabric. I stuffed the legs, claws and stinger with poly-fill batting. Carter will also be sporting this adorable getup for Halloween. I also made a peacock costume for his sister Renee but you will have to come back and see that later.

If you would like a copy of the pattern send me an email (briellekennington@gmail.com). There is a $5.00 fee to cover the supplies and shipping costs.

do you have any other pics showing more of the stinger?

I don't sorry. I made it for my sister and then sent it off to her. She is a photographer so I didn't take any pictures. I figured she would once she got it :) If you are interested in the pattern let me know.

How did you are the stinger stay up and not just fall to the ground?

We used a safety pin and pinned it to his shirt at the shoulder.
