UB Funkey Rastro Costume

Here are some pictures of a Rastro costume sent in by Judi C. of Indiana. Her 6 year old son, Aaron C., is a fan of UB Funkeys and really wanted to go as Rastro for Halloween. His mother was up for the challenge even though she's not a seamstress, but she's made his costumes for him in past years.

If you're curious about how Judi made this, as I was, here is what she wrote: "I don't know how many hours I put into it, but the head did take the longest. It was paper mache using a punching ball as the base. I used a pattern for a super-hero costume for the body, just altering it a bit for the belt, arms/hands, and the feet. I probably would have used a pair of sweats as the base but couldn't find the darker gray. It probably would've saved some time."

Aaron has already told his mom he wants to go as Nectar next year, so I wish her good luck on that! ;)
We'll look forward to seeing more pictures next year!
