Go Go Power Rangers! Ahhhh, why is it the Power Ranger they want to be is one that isn’t made?!!!!  Making this costume was definitely worth it to see the look on my little guy’s face.  As I typically don’t use patterns to make my children’s items I was able to look at a picture and make this pretty closely resemble the actual golden ranger’s costume.  One problem I had was not being able to find a gold material that was a little bit stretchy…that would have made this costume perfect-and much easier to make.  Alas, last minute Halloween costume making has me using what is available and stretchy gold fabric is not.

So, the big tip for Halloween Costume making is this, use stretchy fabric wherever possible! It allows the fit to be more comfortable for the child and enables you to not to have to have the fit exactly perfect. Also, velcro closures are easy for kids and moms. The velcro dots are great but be sure to get the NON sticky kind!  Want a costume for your child that is unavailable? I will be happy to help or make it for you!  Contact me at shannon@coffeycreationsforkids.com
