A few weeks ago a nice gal contacted me about making a costume for her kiddo based on this Pottery Barn Owl Costume:

It instantly got my creative juices flowing! A few trial runs and tweaks later and I finally have it! And since it's the cutest thing ever I am making it available in my Etsy shop.
As you can see it is now 2 seperate pieces, a cape and hat. First, of all this is much more boy friendly. Second, it is practical because the hat can be worn throughout the fall and winter.
The hat has an adorable shabby chic style appliqued face. It is lined too. In the picture above I used orange polka dot fabric which matches the lining in the cape. Below, it's hard to tell, but I lined the hat with another layer of the brown fleece making it extra warm.
Isn't this chubby face adorable! He's eating fruit snacks... so this is the best shot of the hat I could get on him... he's at the age where he wants to pull off the hat as soon as I put it on.
Here's the duo closer up.
Sorry for the poor quality of this picture... he sat still for approximately 30 seconds thanks to the stick and corn keeping him happy.
I can also do the hooded cape... this one is a bit small for him... but he's my only baby model. The cape would fit like it does in the previous picture covering more of the shoulders.
Lining can be your choice. I have many fabrics to choose from. Here is a white with orange, brown, tan, & blue polka dots.
Once Halloween is over you can continue using the warm fall/winter hat!
