Baby Moogle Costume

Baby Moogle Costume

I love Halloween because it means I can dress up my brood. This year’s theme was supposed to be Final Fantasy with the Grub as a moogle and the Larva as a white mage. I got as far as making the moogle costume, but then I decided that we needed to do a theme as an entire family.

The problem with that decision is that I no longer have a Final Fantasy costume and making new adult costumes is a lot more work than making kid costumes. Marcus and I do, however, both have Avatar: The Last Airbender costumes, so now I’m in middle of making new Avatar costumes for the kids.

In the meantime, I decided to snap some photos of the Grub in her moogle costume.

I use Simplicity 1767 as a base. I’ve used this pattern a few times and I always make a few changes. I make the sleeves a little longer and this time, I added mittens on to the ends. I also alter the hood because I don’t like the elastic gathers the pattern calls for. Instead, I trim the hood down so it’s not so big.

I used fleece for the entire costume. The wings are fleece sewn over Pellon Peltex for stiffness, and the pompom is a magician’s foam ball glued on to a piece of felt folded a bunch of times into a fabric rod.

I think the costume came out pretty cute, but obviously I’m biased. =D
