When my son was little he broke almost everything he touched. We started calling him Captain Destructo. When Halloween came around I decided to make a Captain Destructo costume.

You Will Need...

  • Romper or other outfit in the desired colors
  • felt for the cape and the letter on the chest
  • sew on velcro strips
  • plastic sunglasses
  • foam sheets to decorate the sunglasses
  • hot glue and glue gun or craft glue
  • needle and thread
  • Sewing machine (optional)
  • iron on transfer sheets or fabric glue
  • broken toys or cheap toys you will need to break

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    First you need to decide on the logo for the chest. I cut the letter D from some felt and a shape to put behind the D.

  • Step 2

    Cut a cape shape from the felt. The top should match up with the child’s shoulders and be wider at the bottom. Mine was a little long. You might want it to go just below the knees.

  • Step 3

    I cut out the letters on the cape from felt. I attached them with fabric glue. Once they dried I outlined them with fabric puff paint.

  • Step 4

    Now is the fun part. If you have some broken toys you are all set. If not you can go to a dollar store or yard sale. Break any unbroken toys. Attach the pieces of the broken toys to the cape with a needle and thread. Make sure the cape isn’t too heavy

  • Step 5

    Once everything is attached and any glue has dried the costume is ready to wear. Just attach the cape with the velcro when you want it on.
