We're gonna need a bigger boat

Ta-daaa! I made June's great white shark costume....and actually got her IN it too. A sweatsuit is the perfect base for toddler costumes. Simple, practical, and warm - to combat the New England chill. I bought the $7 gray hoodie at Target and sewed wide red satin ribbon as the "gums" and used white felt to make the teeth and ventral pigmentation. A white shark is counter-shaded, after all. Wouldn't want my girl wandering around without proper camouflage. Otherwise how's she gonna ambush a seal?

Apparently, sharks like crackers...


  1. That is the cutest costume I've seen in a very long time.
