Mom Crafts Lion Costume Out Of Stuffed Animal When She Can’t Find An Outfit For Her Infant

Kate is a writer who laughs at her own jokes and likes to pour too much hot sauce on her food.

If having one young child is a lot of work, can you imagine having four?

It’s all in a day’s work for Australian mom Chloe Kotsano, who has two young boys and two even younger girls.

The 29-year-old mom works as a children’s party entertainer and knows a thing or two about getting dressed up.

Chloe wanted to organize a unique photo shoot with her children. Of course, the creative mama included a theme and corresponding costumes.

Chloe tells the Daily Mail, “Life with four kids is a bit of a circus so that was the theme and I wanted them to be able to look back on it and think it’s fun.”

For the photo shoot, Chloe knew that she wanted her youngest, 10-week-old daughter Edie, to be dressed as a lion. The only problem was she couldn’t find a lion costume in Edie’s size.

Chloe told the Daily Mail, “I was struggling to find anything for my little girl to wear and I knew I wanted her to be a lion as my eldest child was dressing as a lion tamer.”

The only lion outfits Chloe could find were for much bigger 6-month-old babies.

After realizing that she wasn’t going to find what she needed, Chloe decided to get creative and use a small stuffed animal to make a costume.

Chloe cut the seams of the toy, removed its stuffing, and added a few key accessories to complete the look.

The end result is this cute baby lion costume that is almost too adorable to handle.

The best part is that Edie seemed to like it too!

The photos came out amazingly. The circus theme perfectly captures these siblings enjoying themselves.

Chloe made this strongman costume from scratch, too!

Edie’s outfit even included little booties and a diaper cover.

Chloe said, “As I was walking through the toy section at Kmart I came across a stuffed toy lion for $9 and thought I could easily take out the stuffing and reform him to make a costume to fit a little baby.”

As you can see, Chloe’s idea worked great.
