Does anybody have a good idea how to make an EASY costume for a baby? Sorry if this is already in another thread, but I don't recall seeing it.

If you have an outfit with an animal on it, you can make ears- like rabbit ears from felt, or dog ears etc. Its cute and easy.

my son has a baseball player stretchie (carters), so I was thinking that if they sell baseball caps for babies, that would be a real easy costume.

Just realized he is wearing it in the photo Wink

a lot of people dress up their baby like the opposite gender.

My first son dressed like a farmer his first Purim. Overalls, plaid shirt, straw hat and bandana.
For my second sons first Purim, he dressed like a shabbos challah cover.
(both were part of my meshloach monos theme)

wouldn't annoy me but I fail to see the point. at that age the only way you can tell is by checking their diaper, so what's the "kuntz"?

I don't know why anyone would want to dress up an infant, but if you swaddle him in a beige or brown receiving blanket he'll look like a blintz.

Or a burrito? But my oldest was born in Kislev, so she was only 3 months old at Purim; I got some brown fabric, and made a sort of triangle-shaped, padded hamentaschen costume with a little elasticized "sock" bunting for her so she was the filling.

If you start with an oversize T shirt, you can use fabric glue, felt, fabric paint, and any trims that you can think of and turn it into any costume. A red Tshirt can be the beginning of a fireman costume. It is easy to take on and off of the child as well.

Thanks sheshycoco Wink Chen I agree well why don't you dress baby up as a blintz or burito or challah roll they look like one anyway lol.
And I did once years ago dress one of my sons as the opposite gender, though now thinking about it those who do u can a) see what they truly wanted or b) were too lazy to do anything else Confused

I'm sure some people think it's cute, but I knew when I was thinking of making my son into a girl this year, it was shear laziness.

or the reason for it is that you want your child to act like the oppisite gender all year round Confused if anything I should dress my four year old daughter as a pretty calm girl maybe that would calm her down a little bit. Confused

I just made my son's purim costume (a torah) out of velvet, some fringing and some puff paints and rhinestones - it looks almost like a real torah mantel!
I used a hot glue gun which cost me about $6 and the glue sticks cost another couple of dollars. no need to sew anything as the hot glue keeps the fabric togehter just as well as stitches!

Klotz, what a great idea! I shall have to write that down for my grandchildren when I have them IY"H. (I should only be healthy and active enough to want to make costumes by then...)
