Make my Week #3 - Buzz Costume

make my week #3
the commericialism has breached our walls again. trust me, i have considered (and re-considered) purchasing a Buzz Lightyear costume for our superhero dresser-upper. but $55?? yeah, nah.
and then Meghan let me in on some Buzz-costume customising she'd done and it kinda inspired me.

my biggest problem was going to be finding purple (loathe!) knit fabric for the hood. and my next biggest problem was sewing a hood (never done it before!)

and then...i miraculously found a dark purple knit top in a bag of my daughter's old clothes to cut a hood out of. i have never bought anyone anything in this colour and have never seen this top before...and yet, it was just what i needed for a Buzz Lightyear hood! amazing :)
