We love to play dress-up at our house. I always try to keep several yards of felt in a variety of colors in case inspiration strikes and we need a quick costume. The downside is that Noodlebug now uses me as a bespoke costume service. I probably shouldn't have let him know that I could do costumes on demand.
Recently, he asked me for a "Bob" costume. I could not figure out what he was talking about. He has very limited exposure to television and only PBS at that. And we don't really have anything related to superheroes in our house. In spite of that, he gets exposed to a lot of things at preschool. I kept asking him questions trying to figure out who "Bob" is. I finally figured out that "Bob" fights with Batman. In other words, "Robin." (He also calls Eeyore from "Winnie the Pooh" by the name of "Jorge.")
He kept asking me for me a Robin costume for his dress-up trunk and I finally broke down and whipped something up. I made a basic open sided tunic and we used the belt and gloves from his Prince Philip costume from last year. It's hard to see in the photo but I also added a yellow felt cape.
I wonder what costume I'll be making next. Thank goodness for felt!!!
