  • glue gun and glue
  • round sponge paint brush


  • 1 red athletic shirt (this one is a rash guard, so it’s stretchy and thick)
  • 1 red tulle skirt
  • 1 yard red velvet fabric for cape
  • 1 felt sheet- red
  • 24 black pom poms
  • black fabric paint


  • Line inside of shirt with paper towels or grocery bag and use black paint to sponge spots onto the shirt. Let dry.
  • While front of shirt dries, use a hot glue gun to glue pom poms onto tulle skirt.
  • Once front of shirt dries, flip over onto garbage bag or grocery sack.
  • Trace the shape of the shoulder and neck seams from the back of the shirt onto the velvet cape fabric. Cut outwards from armpit seams on cape fabric, then round the bottom to hang down from shirt at desired length. (Use lighter to melt edges of cape fabric if fraying is an issue.)
  • Use glue gun to glue the edges of the cape onto the seams of the shoulders and back. Paint black dots onto the cape and back of sleeves using sponge brush. Let dry.
  • Cut out an eye mask shape using red felt. Then cut two triangles out of cape material to glue over red string at corners of mask. Use the sponge brush to paint black spots onto the mask. Let dry, then cut out two circles for eyes in the mask.
