Halloween Costume Series #7
How to Make a Digger (Excavator) Costume Part 2
I have finished my 2 year old Adventurer's digger costume and it's turned out so well! You can read all about its construction in my part 1 post. The whole thing took around 4 hours not including the time it took to research and make the design or the paint dry time. Allow yourself about 2 days to complete this project if you can only work on it intermittently like me.
But it's totally worth it right?
My Adventurer still hasn't seen it yet since I have a pretty good feeling that he will play with it until it breaks. Halloween is still a week and a half away and so it's going to stay hidden until Halloween to keep it safe. I can't wait to see his face when I give it to him!
So here's how I finished it:
When you last saw the digger it looked like this, construction completed, needing paint and finishing touches.
Here is what I've done since to finish it:
After consulting with a couple people, I decided to leave the tracks off the bottom. They thought it looks good the way it is. I'm not completely convinced of this, but for now at least I'm leaving them off. If I change my mind, I will update this post.
Looks great, Right?

But he really loved his costume and is still playing with it.
