Costume Stress Testing, Toddler Style

When you're making a costume for a toddler, you want to make sure it will hold up to toddler antics. I put this Boo costume (from Disney's Monsters, Inc.) on my daughter to see if she would like wearing it. It's a bit like wearing a sleeping bag, with flippers. Needless to say, she liked it so much she started dancing around!



After I posted this video on Facebook it quickly went viral and amassed over 1.2 million views! Wow! I can't even read all of the comments, but apparently a lot of people know someone who has a little girl who would also make a really cute Boo. :)

Once I finish the costume I'll do a blog post on it. All I have left is finishing the hood and getting the eye stalks attached. I may also need to make the shoe "flippers" all over again because her feet grew.

Fun fact: I started making this monster costume months ago, but my daughter was scared to get into the "tunnel"; the costume did not look like clothes to her! Now that she's two-and-a-half, she is much braver. Once she is three I will see if she might be interested in wearing foam armor.
