I thought I would combine Peter and Wendy… mostly because Wendy is pretty darn simple.
Get a light colored nightgown (long). Dye it blue. Buy a blue ribbon, tie it over your ponytail. I used Rit dye — and I did dye it in my front loading washing machine. It worked alright. Questions?
Peter is a bit more involved.
We bought brown pants at Goodwill (they were actually girls — and they had a cool leather belt made of strips of leather, that I used on his shirt — I’m handy like that.
His shirt is a men’s small T-shirt, green. I made the bottom jagged, by just cutting various triangles out of the bottom. on the top, I cut about a 4 inch line down the middle of the shirt from the collar, down to mid-sternum. I then put grommets on each side (it will tie-up like a shoe-lace). You wouldn’t HAVE to use grommets, but I had some lying around from the ol’ scrapbooking days. I also glued a peter pan collar on the collar using fabric glue. We used a belt to cinch it in Peter Pan style.The hat was entirely a pinterest find. I found it here. The tutorial is pretty easy. For the feather, I used a pipe cleaner in the middle to make sure it stayed fairly stiff.
And what is a costume without a giant sword? Nothing, I tell you. If you look closely, you’ll see we used this costume with 2 different boys. They are not lost boys, at least not currently. 🙂
It wasn’t bad to make. I put fray-check on the raw edges of fabric, because I had planned to wash it, but if it was a one time costume, you wouldn’t need to.
