By now, you might have seen Bama practicing her scary. She learned how to Aarh like a monster from The Backyardigans (what, don't judge).
She wanted to be a monster, furry, blue. I lucked out and found the costume. But it needed tweaking. She needed bell peppers, for one thing.
Because she was a monster who eats bell peppers, after all.
She needed a tail, she said. She suggested stuffing tights, I offered to attach pom poms. In the end, I watched a couple of episodes of Game of Thrones and whipped up a dozen pom poms and an i-cord.
The monster has a sidekick. The garden gnome who grows bell peppers. I used a tutorial from here to whip up a hat the night before. (She used this tutorial to create her pattern. The sizing, to be clear, is for a toddler. It fits Bama perfectly. I can wear it, but would probably make it an inch bigger all around if I did.)
