I’m so excited to bring you this costume today! Earlier this year, my son wanted to dress up as Flint Lockwood from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs… so I came up with this simple costume, and am sharing with you how you can DIY one yourself!
To make your own Flint Lockwood costume (with spray-on shoes), you need:
Yellow Heat Transfer
White work shirt (adult size)
Glitter paint and white puff paint
I’m going to start with the shoes. Grab large black socks, and shoes.
Put the socks over the shoes. Cover with the glitter paint.
Add detail with white puff paint, then set aside to dry.
The shirt is easy – I have a Science is Awesome File – you can cut it from vinyl with your silhouette, print it on fusible printer paper, or paint it on… there are all kinds of file options for you to use, depending on your favorite technique.
Have your child put on the shirt inside out. Pin along the sides and arms, then stitch.
Cut away the excess seam allowance, then turn the shirt right side out.
Your Flint Lockwood costume is complete!
