This week they are celebrating children's day in my daughter's school. This tree costume is for the fancy dress competition .
In the top I have used two different shades of brown for the body and sleeve. I painted with fabric colors to make it look like the trunk of the tree.
Then I stitched the top. For the pant I managed with the brown color tracksuit.
The branches and leaves were not that much easy to make. I first made it with a thermocol.
In this I made a mistake, you can notice one side is very thin than the other. when I fix this in her face to check whether it fits, it break down. The thermocol is not very flexible.Then I made the other one with cardboard and chart paper. It will be easy to paint in the chart than the cardboard. So I pasted the chart over the cardboard.
and painted with fabric colors, outlined it with black.
I also attached a cord behind it, so that it can be tied around the head and hands.
