The Ants costumes / Mravi, kostim za maškare

Mravi, kostim za maškare
The Ants costumes
Pogledajte koliko ručica i nožica imamo !
Look how many arms and feet we've got !


Ovo nam je kostim od prije 4 godine. Čista uživancija!

These are our costumes that I had made 4 yrs ago. It was 100% of pure fun! 


Za izradu ovog kostima potrebna je spužva ( 1m x 2m x 2 cm), materijal za oblaganje spužve, žica za ticala, rukavice za ruke i lastik.

TIJELO - Prvo se spužva izreže u željenu dimenziju, što ovisi o djetetu, te se ručno zašije. Izrežu se otvori za ruke.  Materijal se također iskroji, izreže i sašije mašinom, navuče na spužvu, presavije preko rubova (nije potrebno zašiti za spužvu). Isto se izreže oko otvora za ruke, malo se ručno zašije da ne strši. Tada se malo ispod gornjeg i donjeg ruba, te oko struka uvuče lastik - onaj tanki koji može ući u iglu, najbolje crni.  Lastik se zategne, zaveže se u čvor, ali se ne režu krajevi viška jer se mora otpustiti da se u kostim može ući /izaći. Sada se na dijelu ispod struka zašije drugi par ruku. Od materijala se sašije nešto kao rukavi, u njih se stavi zarolana spužva, na krajeve se našiju dječje rukavice, isto tako napunjene ili komadićima spužve ili novina ili vate, što se ima.
GLAVA - Od spužve se izreže 8 komada oblika kao na slici. Tu mi je inspiracija bila košarkaška lopta. Svi se komadi ručno prišiju. Tada se dobije baš oblik lopte. Izreže se otvor za glavu koji mora biti manji od lica djeteta jer se spužva rasteže malo. Od istog materijala isto izrezati takvih 8 komada, mašinski ih sašiti, navući na glavu, oko otvora za lice malo ručno pripuntati.
TICALA -  Potrebna je žica duljine 1 m. Nju uvučemo u "košuljicu" od materijala, nema veze ako je košuljica malo šira od žice. Ja sam koristila "kosu traku" crne boje. Odjevena žica se tada formira u oblik na gornjoj slici, krajevi se omotaju oko metle da se dobije lijepa spirala. Na same krajeve je potrebno zaljepiti malo spužve da ne bude oštro. Na glavi probiti 2 rupe i provući jedan i drugi kraj ticala kroz te rupe tako da ona savijena sredina ostane unutar spužvaste glave.
I mrav je gotov!

To create this costume you will  require a foam (1m x 2m x 2 cm), the coating material  for the foam, wire for antennas, gloves for hands and elastic band.

BODY - Fist you cut the foam in desired dimensions, depending on a child, and handstitch the edges. Don't forget the openings for the arms. Then you tailor the fabric, cut it, sew with the mashine, pull over the foam shape, fold over edges (no need to sew material to the foam). Make sure to cut around the arm openings as well, fold  fabric over edges and hanstitch a little, so it doesn't stick out. Then you take thin elastic band, the kind that goes into needle, and  hand sew it a little bit below upper and lower opening and around the waist line. When you tighten the elastic band, make a knot but do not cut the rest of, becouse you will need to loosen up when you want to dress/undress. Now you take 2 pieces of fabric, sew something like sleeves, put some rolled foam inside, handstitch arms in area below waist and put some gloves at the end. Gloves could be filled with small pieces of foam, cotton woll, whatever you have around.
HEAD - Cut 8 shapes as shown in picture, handstitch them all together and you will get a ball like round shape (actually, basketball was my inspiration). Cut the opening for child's face, but make it smaller then face, because foam tend to stratch a little. Cut 8 pieces like that out of fabric, mashine sew them, pull over on foam head, cut around face, fold over edges and handstitch so it looks better.
TENTACLES - Take a wire 1 m long. Sew  a "coat" for the wire out of fabric or ribbon. It doesn't matter if the coat is a little bit wider then a wire. Now shape the dressed wire as shown in picture above, wrap the ends around broom stick to get these nice spiral look. You should glue some foam at the end of the tentacles so they are not sharp. Then, you take foam head, make 2 holes, slide both end of tentacles through so the middle part stays inside of the head.
And the ant is finished!


Ovo je moja lijepa mravičica!

    1. I suggested to cut this face opening a little bit smaller then face itself, so when you put this ant head on your head, you need to strech up this opening a bit, so when is on your head it returns to normal position and holds well. You can walk, dance, run - ant's head is on its place. Foam is very thanful material, there are a lot of posibilities working with foam.
