DIY Costume: Griffin Family
Meet Griffin! An adorable 19-month-old boy from St. Paul, Minnesota.
His mother, Sarah, was inspired by Green HalloweenÂ® to make Griffin an eco-friendly “Griffin” costume for Halloween this year!
(Be sure to check out Griffin’s 2009 owl costume made from wool fleece and Eco Felt).
As you may or may not know, a Griffin is part lion, part eagle so what’s a Griffin mama and daddy to wear? You got it!
Sarah was a “Eagle Mother” and her husband, Andrew, a “Lion Dad”.
Each costume was made with either recycled materials Sarah found at Goodwill or from home, and Eco Felt or wool felt. One of her favorite transformations was using an orange bath mat for Andrew’s lion mane!
All in all, Sarah spent less than $15 on supplies, which also made it a thrifty Halloween!
Sarah, we love your resourcefulness and style; can’t wait to see what you come up with next year.
