What if we told you that we could give both you AND your kid super powers? Yours first: you can reuse your Primary essentials after Halloween, and create a winning costume in under 30 minutes! Too good to be true? Not with our simple DIY! Now theirs: with this classic DIY "The Flash" costume, they'll have the power of superspeed and get to all the neighborhood houses fast as lightning. (Not being slowed down by a sweaty, plastic costume is the key to superspeed!)
For the mask:
- Cut a red strip of felt that fits around the wearer's head.
- Place felt over the eyes and mark where the eye openings should be with a marker. Cut out the eye openings and cut a semi-circle along the bottom middle edge to reveal the nose.
- Cut two yellow flashes from felt and glue or use fabric tape to attach to the sides of the mask.
For the emblem:**
- Cut a medium sized yellow felt circle and a slightly smaller white felt circle. Attach together with hot glue.
- Cut a lightning bolt from yellow felt and glue it in the center of the circle. If you'd like, you can find a lightning bolt image from the internet to print and trace.
- Use fabric tape to attach the emblem to the front of the Long Sleeve PJ Top.
For the yellow edging:
- Use yellow electrical tape to make the flashy zig zag shapes around the sleeves and waist.
- In a colder climate this Halloween? Use our cozy tunic sweatshirt and cozy legging in red for a warmer look!
- For a DIY baby The Flash, use our baby top and baby bottom in red!
