Superhero Costumes: DIY Ant-Man Costume For Your Kid

Going for ant-man was a bit off from the common preference. I have seen little girl dressing as Wonder Women. Other dressing as Supergirl. However, I observed that my baby fascinates Ant-man. I did not ask any questions regarding the preference. I simply started my plans concerning the same.

Well, to be honest preparing the costume was a bit tricky especially the helmet. Although you need to work hard, still it is fun.

For the pants, I grabbed a pair of Superman pajamas. Then I looked for a perfect top, which luckily was found in the girl section. After that, I check out some blue boxers. However, I was pretty confused about the harness portion of the costume. So, I ended up taking felt, black ribbon and Heat & Bond.

I used up the spool of black ribbon as a stencil to cut a circle from felt. After that, I ironed Heat & Bond at the back of the circle. Then I sued the ribbon at the center of the shirt to make the belt. I also used the strips from Heat & Bond to add details to the top. Then I sewed the ribbons to the top to make it sit strong.

I worked on the other material as per Ant-man dresses. Now the helmet. For the helmet, I bought in the space helmet from a toy store. And to make the antennas, I used the bottle cleaners. I applied hot glue to bring a shape to the antennas. Then spray painted the whole stuff to get the perfect result. Using a duct tape I attached the antennas to the helmet. It was great actually since my baby girl never stopped smiling that day. I was happy.
