The first one I am going to write about is, none other than, Buzz Lightyear:
This costume started with white sweat pants and a plain white, long sleeve shirt. I added some lime green pleather (I like this because it's nice and shiny) to the bottom of the sweat pants - making them seem more like bell bottoms. For the shirt, I used a picture of Buzz, to add details that made him look more like the famous space man!
The most challenging part was making the wings. I used my son's football pads as a mold to make a cardboard armature. I folded the cardboard around the shoulder pads to get the shape that I wanted. Then after much duck tape and hot blue to hold it all together, I removed the shoulder pads. I then hot glued white pleather over entire thing. I added longer pieces of card board to make the wings and some puffy paint and felt for detail. The hood was made from shiny purple material.
