Looking for more cute baby halloween costume ideas? Well, the baby owl was not my first baby costume and the spider was not my first time working with faux fur. My first truly homemade kids costume was the skunk. I would have never thought a skunk could be so cute. I used this amazing pattern by Tom Arma for McCalls and lots of fur. My mom helped me a lot with this one. She made the headpiece herself and then helped me with the body and tail.
The tail and head piece are removable which I think is essential. You always want babies and kids to stay comfortable without having to remove the whole costume.
The whole outfit was adorable, but my favorite part was the feet. We used a small piece of leather from the craft store to make the paw prints.
If you do not think you are up to the challenge of making the skunk yourself, you can also buy the complete toddler skunk costume from Halloween Express. It is cheaper to make it yourself, though.
