E was sushi for Halloween. ♡ (nigirizushi to be exact…)
The costume turned out really cute and was a big hit!
I saw the idea in Parents magazine years ago, and knew that if I ever had a baby I would remember it for their first Halloween.
My mom and I made the orange fish pillow and the green seaweed sash. She did the sewing and I painted the white lines on the fish (instead of using tape like the instructions suggest). The rice part of the sushi is just a regular white onesie.
He wore it to his library play group on the 30th, and on Halloween we visited my mom’s school where there was a little Halloween parade with all the kids wearing their costumes. He crawled around and played like normal, not seeming to notice the pillow on his back for more than a moment, and never tried to pull it off.
I will definitely be holding on to this costume in case another baby can wear it. ♡
