Step 7. The holes in the costume should hold the wire in place, so that it wraps around and illuminates the badge. You can wrap the extra wire around the arms or get creative in the placement on the costume.

Step 1. Use the badge template to cut out pieces of red and pink foam. Glue the pieces together, as shown.

Step 2. Have your child wear the red skin suit and mask. Use the spray adhesive to attach the badge to their chest.

Step 3. Cut the red  fabric to be approximately as wide as your child’s arm span, the height should be from the bottom of their neck to approximately their mid thigh.

Owlette Step 02

Step 5.  Draw ½ a wing on the edge opposite the fold.

Step 6. Cut out the wing, when unfolded the wing should resemble a full set of wings.

Step 7. Cut out almond shaped pieces of glittery pink felt and hot glue to the red fabric wings. The pieces should start to resemble owl feathers. I left gap between my pieces, but they can also overlap.   You can cut one large and one small piece and use them as your template for the other pieces.

Owlette Step 03

Step 8. Attach small strips of the adhesive velcro/hook and latch along the back, shoulders and arms of the skin suit.

Step 9. Attach the cape to the costume using the velcro/hook and latch.

Step 10. Starting at the top of the badge, very carefully make a small incision in the skin suit. Make a second small incision about 1 inch from the first one.  Make a third incision about 4 inches  from the second one. Make a fourth incision 1inch from the third. Repeat this pattern around the badge.

Owlette Step 04

Step 11. Clip the battery pack for the luminescent wire to the back of the skin suit. You can remove the cape to make this step easier, and re-attach when complete. The cape will hide the wire

Make a second small incision about 1 inch from the first one.  Make a third incision about 4 inches  from the second one. Make a fourth incision 1inch from the third.
