Arrrr, me matey’s. Today I’m sharing the sneaky snook DIY Captain Hook costume I made.
Oh this is really one of my favorite costumes, and I loved how cute and simple it was to make.
Step 1: Cut a straight line directly down the center front of the sweatshirt
Step 2: Cut the bottom ribbing and wrist section off
Step 3: Try on the child to see where you need to make alterations
Step 4: I sewed directly in the back a seam to make it smaller. I also did seams in the arms to make them thinner and the sides.
Step 5: Try the coat on the child and see if you need to cut or alter anything length wise
Step 6: Sew the shoulders. I needed to make a shoulder pad area so I hand stitched it to give the affect
Step 7: Trim the perimeter of the coat with the gold trim.
Step 8: Add a small piece of Velcro® to make the coat stay/lay flat
Step 9: Cut 2 pieces of white felt and add to the arm holes
Step 10: The hat. Turn the cowboy hat sideways and push up the sides and hot glue them
Step 11: Add a feather
Step 12: Hook- Mine is made of foam and elastic
Step 13: Draw on a mustaches with an eyeliner pencil
That’s it. It’s not as hard as you think. It didn’t take a ton of time and my kids are still playing with this costume. It really is one of my favorite ones. I just regret not taking more pictures of him because he was the cutest Captain Hook.
