If you’ve been following along on the Mommy Mafia Facebook group (what? you haven’t “Liked” Mommy Mafia on Facebook, yet? There’s so much fun over there!) you would have been hearing me
bitching lament about the Little Made Man wanting to be Diamond Armor Minecraft Steve for Halloween and me not being able to find the Minecraft costume anywhere.
But when you promise your kid a Diamond Armor Minecraft Steve costume, you have to somehow produce a Diamond Armor Minecraft Steve costume.
So the picture above is the result of two sleepless nights, a bottle or so of wine, and multiple trips to Office Depot. I present to you: Minecraft Steve in Diamond Armor.
shocked pleased with myself I have to say. I’m not a DIY-er by any means, but thank goodness for Google and Pinterest, Shark (because it just so happens that the Shark Rocket Powerhead vacuum box was the EXACT SIZE I needed), BUT MOST OF ALL a HUGE Thank You to @Wingwalker1 from Instructables.com. His step-by step DIY Minecraft Costume instructions were spot on.
I purchased the Diamond Armor Sword and a Minecraft Torch (not shown, but we used it for trick-or-treating) from Target, they were the perfect additions to the costume.
The Little Made Man was in Minecraft/Halloween heaven and everyone loved his costume. So the sleepless nights of course, were worth it. What we will do for our kids, huh?
