A little lobster can clap his giant claws together or free his fingers to give a pinch through slits in the back of the felt mitts. Ping-pong-ball eyes bob on ends of pipe cleaners affixed to a cotton pilot's cap. A scalloped-edge skirt worn over a red snap-bottom T-shirt allows for freedom of movement.
Note: This costume can be sized to fit a child of any age; only the claws and skirt require sewing. Because our costumes were assembled from household materials, they do not conform to all of the safety requirements that store-bought costumes do. Therefore, children wearing them should be supervised by an adult at all times. Make sure that the lobster skirt and claws fit properly so that your child won't trip with them. This lobster pairs well with our mermaid costume and octopus costume for an adorable undersea-inspired group ensemble.
