Like my little deep sea fisherman costume, as opposed to a fly fisherman costume? Truthfully I'm happy with the results, though many many people kept asking my son what he was dressed up as. For Americans, or at least adults, the beard and pipe are enough of a hint, right?
This year I have a new sewing machine, so I was able to sew a necklace of little stuffed fish, as well as some bigger stuffed fish to put in the bucket, and the slicker pants as well! I went in search of some appropriate fabric at the hardware store, and found this black woven "jute" which was only $1 a meter! The only problem is that once you cut it, it totally unravels, so next time I'd chalk the outline of the pattern and sew around that before cutting, lesson learned!
We bought the pipe for $2.50 and the bucket for another $1.50 and the rest of the items were made from fabric on hand, or were clothing items that we happened to have. Oh, and yes, that lovely crocheted beard which was fortunately also left over from last year, it was a bit large but with the help of some elastic cord it fit quite well.
That is it, I'll post some more details about the costume after the Purim festivities are over!
