Native Indian Halloween Costume

This year my youngest son wanted to be a Native Indian for Halloween, one would think no problem finding a costume but no way could we find one. So I decided to step out of my comfort zone and sew one for him.  After a lot of web searches and you tube videos I set off on this journey of creating his costume.  I told him in advance that there was no guarantee that his pant legs might not be the same length or that the shirt may not look right but he was okay with it. 

The pants were easy well maybe minus the elastic but we figured it out, it may not look pretty inside but those pants are definitely going to stay up. The shirt was a little tricky but thank goodness it is just for a costume. 

The fun part was the headpiece which he helped me put the feathers on and then we finished it up by him making a wood bead necklace.

He was excited to see it done and even more excited to see it didn't look like a tiger like he thought it was starting to look like.

How many of you make your kids costumes?
