My boss’s Half T-Rex & Half Thomas costume! Ready for trick or treat !

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! 🙂

Here is the design I came up with. I am very happy with the result and proud of myself to make every piece, even to step up all the food and drinks.

Handmade train T-shirt and Cap for my little train lover


Like many 2-3 year old boys, my boss is obsessing with trains, especially Thomas the train. Except for the train toys, I don’t really want to get him any Thomas accessories or outfit. I am sorry to be a selfish mom, but the design is too cartoonish, and I can’t stand my boss wearing it! He was envying when he saw someone wearing the Thomas or other train T-shirt, so I decided to start making train design outfit for him.Continue reading

Tailored costume for my boss


A white Horse, Thomas the train and a zoo keeper are my boss’s favorite characters, but Thomas the train is still the no. 1 coolest thing in his world.  Since the only Thomas costume I can buy in the market is a super ugly vest, I decided to make my own. There are a lot of tutorials of making Thomas costume; I based on this one from littleredwindow to create my first homemade costume! ( I am sure more to make before he becomes a teenager ><)Continue reading
