Super Why the Costume Part II

I thought this Halloween would be easier for parents of Super Why obsessed kids. However, from the occasional comments to this post from last year, and the flood of emails I get (in my treadmillista account that I basically never check) in response to the Super Why costume I guess I am wrong. I decided to take the time to detail out The Boy's Super Why costume from last year. Hopefully this can help someone else, who is looking for ways to make a Super Why costume for their Super Whyatt loving children.



Please note that I can't find the mask. The costume was in a pile of costumes in the basement play room, and as you know children don't always leave things in neat little piles. I suspect the mask is hiding somewhere in our 2-story plus finished basement house...I just don't know where.

The Shirt: this was made with green t-shirt material by my fabulous MIL. I found the logo on a coloring page printable from the PBS kids website, and then printed it on iron-on ink jet paper (you can buy the iron on ink jet paper at a variety of places including Target) and T ironed it onto the shirt. Baby Blog Addict posted a fabulous clean jpeg image that you can use for this purpose, so check it out - I was emailing it, but I'm burnt out!


The shirt with the pants: The pants were made with the same t-shirt material. My MIL is pretty resourceful and didn't need a pattern to make either the shirt or the pants. This is great because I don't even know how to turn on our sewing machine (it is really T's not mine).



The back of the shirt has two small velcro strips sewn onto it, for easy attachment of the cape:


The shirt with the cape attached: The cape was re-used from a very old costume from T's childhood when he was Batman. It feels like a nylon blend of some sort.


The little shorts: These were also re-used from that same very old Batman costume. Same material as the cape...



The under shirt: The Boy had this already in his closet. It is a size 4 Lands End plain blue long-sleeved t-shirt.


The total package (minus the mask):


The mask - If I remember correctly we used thin foam board to get the basic shape, and then my MIL wrapped the green t-shirt material around it somehow. She used velcro strips at the end of strings of the t-shirt material so it could be secured around The Boy's head.

If you have further questions I will try to funnel them to my mother in law! I hope this helps someone.

Note: I updated the link to the Super Why logo, this new link should work. I apologize for not being responsive to questions/emails, but my current job has me swamped and just unable to devote time to a blog anymore. Good luck with your costume making!

Can you send me the logo, too? magoose99@yahoo.com. Thanks!!

BTW: I was able to find a light green t-shirt at Michaels and and (almost) matching color in sweatpants in the girl's department at Wal-Mart. Just thought I would mention it for those folks like me who aren't great at the sewing of clothes.

thank you sooo much for this. i can't find the manufacturer's costume ANYWHERE. i don't sew a darn thing, but for my lil man i will attempt to make this costume. i imagine you would all agree that super wyatt is a true hero. it's nice to see how our kids love the characters. i've looked on the pbs site, but have not been totally successful locating a clean copy of the logo. if you/someone happens to have it, would greatly appreciate if you could share/send: denaray1@gmail.com.
thank you kindly! safe & happy halloween to all our beautiful children.

I have a CLEAN SUPER WHY LOGO that you can use if you need an image to iron on. Check it out at my parenting site -http://www.babyblogaddict.com/2008/10/super-why-costume-and-logo.html.

Like most of you, I was also in search of a costume for my son.

Hi All, I recently purchased a costume from BuyCostumes.com for SuperWhy. I was contemplating on making my own and then saw this and it was just much easier. The package came very quickly.

Now I am looking for ideas on how to make the laser beam Question Mark SuperWhy carries.

I know this is probably last minute, but if someone is looking for matching green shirt and pants, I found 2 pack knit Handy Manny PJs from Meijer. The front of one shirt has a Handy Manny print, but I turned the shirt backwards and it will be covered by the cape. Otherwise the pants and shirt are matching green and have blue cuffs. My son will wear a blue shirt underneath and just pull up the green sleeves a little to show more blue. The PJ's were $20, but he can wear both pairs later. Hope this helps.

Jane said...

I know that this is last minute and I am trying to finish up my Super Why costume. Was wondering if you could send the pdf to chinney1213@comcast.net. Thanks in advance for your help and I hope my costume comes out half as good as yours!!

Do you still have the PDF file? I have my son a custom made cape but He's super G but I wanted to add this logo to the front of his shirt cause he was originally supposed to be Super Why!

Thanks soo much!

Thank you so much for the directions on how to make this! My son is Super Why obsessed and thinks he's a super hero. I will definitely be doing this come halloween time!

Terry said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, my son really wants a super why costume for his birthday. Luckily, I started looking now, they are all sold out. So, I have four weeks to sew one. You saved me a lot of time. Really - bless you.

Hi there- this is so exciting to have found this site. Now I am doing something crazy, making every child coming to my son's birthday their own cape/t-shirt. Can anyone email me the JPEG for the logo, I can't seem to find the one at Baby Blog.

I know this is old, but if anyone could email the Super Why logo to me my 3 year old would be forever in your debt.

I just wanted to know if you would sell your Super Why costume. My son is obsessed with Super Why and when I saw yours I tried to make one myself. What a disaster. I could not find shorts anywhere like these, not even the color and I can not sew for the life of me. I'm just trying to be a supermom and make my son a happy trick or treater. Let me know. Thanks.
