What the suit looks like
If you decide to make a musketeer carnival costume for a boy with your own hands, you should know what it is. Here is a list of the parts that the costume should consist of:
- top and bottom clothes;
One of the costume options, you can see on the next photo.
Musketeers dressed in rather interesting clothes, which consisted of pants, a shirt and a cape. If you have firmly decided to sew a New Year's musketeer costume with your own hands for a boy, then it is worth considering some features. This applies to the cape, which is an elongated tank top, and in some cases, a cape.
If there are trousers or pants of a classic cut in the child’s wardrobe, then you canuse them. Tight pants that look like leggings will look good. Preferably choose dark colors, these can be shades of black, brown or gray. But if you are determined to sew a musketeer costume for a boy with your own hands, then you can choose wide breeches instead of classic trousers. They look especially impressive when worn over white tights made of velor or velvet.
From outerwear you need a white shirt or golf. It is also not necessary to sew this part of the clothes yourself if there is something similar in the wardrobe. A cape is always worn over the shirt, which can look like an elongated sleeveless jacket or a wide jacket with slit sleeves. Satin or silk is best suited for this part. But the colors are not too diverse, it is blue and red, with elements of gold or silver. It will not be difficult to sew a musketeer costume for a boy with your own hands. A pattern of several options is shown in the following figure.
If desired, you can combine several colors when sewing capes. Even as a decoration, you can depict a coat of arms or a cross on the chest of the costume. With paint or patches.
Also, the cape can be supplemented with a light strip of lace near the neck. Or a small collar, which must be sewn from white fabric. As you can see on the patterns, buttons and braid are used for decoration. As you already understood, there are no special boundaries if you sew a musketeer costume for a boy with your own hands.
Mostly pick up high boots for the Musketeer costume. They can be black, brown or even red. We will not be able to sew shoes, so we will have to purchase specially. Unless, of course, there are suitable boots among the available children's shoes.
When we talked about the choice of trousers, we noted that it is possible to sew wide breeches, which are fixed on the leg from below with an elastic band. So, if you chose this option, then you can do without boots. Breeches are worn over white tights, and boots or shoes are chosen from shoes. An example of this option can be seen in the following photo.
Ordinary classic shoes in this version can be decorated. Gold braid, buckles and other accessories are suitable for this.
How can you imagine a musketeer without a hat? No way, so be sure to focus on this when you sew a musketeer costume for a boy with your own hands. The photo below is just showing the chic Musketeer hat.
As you can see, this is a classic hat with wide sides and one feature. This feature is a pen, so we advise you to choose this option. Ready-made hats are usually available from the store, or maybe you have old adult hats. You can use whatever you find, the main thing is to add a feather. Ostrich, goose and swan feathers are best suited for this option. Feather fixon the side of the hat with silicone hot glue or sew on with thread.
Another option for decorating a hat is to depict a coat of arms or a cross on it. This can be done in the form of a patch, which is cut out of a dense material, in a contrasting color. It is best to fix the finished patch with a thread and a needle.
Well, we have come to the end of the image, we have already sewn a musketeer costume with our own hands for the boy, it remains to add realism to the image. Each musketeer had a saber or sword in his arsenal. They carried this weapon behind their belt so that they could quickly get it if necessary. Here is our, albeit childish, image that needs to be supplemented with weapons.
Doing what we need with our own hands will not work. After all, swords made of cardboard or foam will not be appropriate here. Therefore, there is only one option left - to purchase ready-made weapons.
Now there is a large selection of aluminum swords and sabers that are made specifically for children. They are completely safe because they have blunt ends and light weight.
If you sewed a musketeer costume for a boy with your own hands, and now you want to make it special, then we will now show you several options.
Practically everyone watched the film adaptation of the film about the Musketeers, and remember that the main characters were with mustaches and beards. You can draw them with a black cosmetic pencil for a child. It will turn out to be a very funny and familiar character.
