Duh nuh....Dun nuh....Duhnuhduhnuhduhnuh

Hi guys!! How's it goin? I am not much of a DIY'er, except when it comes to Halloween. I am not sure why I don't craft more in the every day...more stuff to put on the to-do list I suppose. Anywho - I thought it might be fun to share with you guys a quick little tutorial on how to make an awesome shark/shark attack costume (in case you are still looking for something to wear). I made this costume the day of last year and it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. Let's get started! Warning: If you need precise measurements or more in-depth directions please refer to Ashnola's shark tutorial - her tutorial inspired me last year. I am not one for precise directions and just went with the flow. If this is more your style follow the following steps...

Jaws Costume Tutorial


- Grey fabric as tall as you are and twice as wide as your body.
- Black felt - a sheet or two to make eyes the size you want.
- White fabric - half a yard - yard.
- Red fabric - half a yard - yard.
- A bag of stuffing or foam to add to the nose and fins.
- Glue gun or sewing machine.

Shark Costume DIY

I simply purchased scrap pieces of fabric for this costume and lucked out. I have no clue what the measurements were - I just held up the fabric and could tell it would work. This is my approach to a lot of, thirfting... Anywho! I also used a glue gun to put this costume together since I was down at school and sans my sewing machine. It worked out just fine! I hope this helped you out or gave you some Halloween costume inspiration.

Have a beautiful day everyone :]
