Ryker still loves train, but he started showing his interest of dinosaurs. When I asked him what did you want to be for the Halloween in September, he said, “Thomas the train.” I was so relieved since I made the Thomas costume last year.  One day when his daddy asked him again, he popped out a shocking answer, “I wanted to be half t-Rex and half Thomas!”

I didn’t even know what kind of that creature that is ?! After asking him over and over, he all gave me the same answer. I thought it’s time to make his wish come true.

Since he is going to wear the Thomas train box, I wanted to make his T-Rex costume light and comfortable. Here was the inspiration I got from and a useful tail making image.

Materials: felts, fabric glue, a blank shirt / a cap, and a sewing machine from a nice friend

special thanks The S’more Studio

Instructions: My nicest friend helped me sew all the triangles and the Dino tail, but I think you can also glued them as well.  Then I glued eyes, the rest of triangles to the shirt and cap.

The result is pretty cool, and he is comfortable wearing it. We took him to the Halloween Thomas the train event the next day, and he had so much fun and proud to be the T-Rex conductor! 🙂
