Who’s ready for another fun costume? As soon as we started watching The BFG in the theater last month, I knew I wanted to make a Big Friendly Giant costume.
The BFG costume is my favorite kind of costume because that can be pulled together inexpensively depending upon what you have on hand or can borrow.
– White or cream shirt – Brown leather vest – Green pants – Big ears – Dream catching net
For the BFG’s shirt, I wanted to find a rough peasant style/linen shirt. I love this baby muslin shirt but it wouldn’t work for us since I was making the costume for Quinn.
The big friendly giant wears a distressed brown leather vest. We had no one to borrow a brown vest from so I ended up making one out of duct tape.
The safety vest was a one-size fits a very big adult, so I had to modify it a little first. I had Quinn try on the vest and then I folded and taped it in place to make it fit better.
