Thomas and Percy DIY Halloween Costumes

October 25, 2015

Lena has been asking to be Thomas for the past year so I had to make her a proper engine costume. Enzo had to of course be the best friend, Percy. 


How to:


1. You will need 2 medium sized boxes from the post office and masking tape. 

 2. Cut the boxes open on one side and tape them together in a rectangle shape.  

 3. Cut the front piece of the train lower and then use the extra pieces to create a roof and fill in the extra space. I also used a clothes hanger on the inside to reinforce the walls. 


4. Paint the whole train the classic Thomas color. I  tried to paint on the details, but found it looked nicer to cut out construction paper for the details like windows. 





Percy's dog costume:


You will need: Felt sheets - 4 x bright green, 1 x red, 1 x yellow. Thread and needle or a sewing machine

​1. Sew the 4 peices together. Sewing machine is super handy here.

Make sure to measure on your dog...the 4 sheets were just right for Enzo. 


2. Then just cut out and sew on the stripes, number and wheels.  


3. I also attached velcro to the neck and bottom to fasten it. Hat is a little dog police hat I found at Target.
