DD wants to be a whale (blue/gray whale type) for Halloween.  I sewed a tail, fins, and eyes on an over-sized gray hoodie, but I think she looks as much like a hobo as a whale!  Anybody have any more ideas?  There's just not that many features in a whale.

Can't she be a hobo whale?  I kid, maybe you could try to add more to the body.  Do the fins stick out?

Can you stuff the hoodie to make it stand out more?

Ha!!  She'll have to be! 

 

The fins are attatched to the arms.   I'll think about the placement to see if that could help.  I'll think about the possibility of stuffing too.   Thanks!
