Kids Inuit Costume
We have to say, we are pretty impressed by the Inuit way of life. We don't think we would be tough enough to handle that kind of cold! Living that far north would be tough, what with the lack of 80 degree days and all. Spending your days out by the freezing waters of the frozen sea would not be easy, and staying warm would be even harder!
If staying warm isn't hard enough, finding food out there sounds even harder! Hunting whales doesn't sound like something we would be very good at. To be honest, we wouldn't even know where to start. The whales are a little out of our weight class by thousands of pounds and we are fighting on the water, which is there turf. We don't think we would be able to get a whale, let alone even last a day out in the cold of northern Canada.
This costume was inspired by traditional Inuit garb! It starts with the dress. The dress is white and is made of 100% crushed velvet. The dress is accented with faux fur trim along the skirt wrist cuffs and the hood. These same places are also edged with geometric designed brocade ribbon. We couldn't send you out in an Inuit inspired costume without something to keep your toes warm, so we included these boot covers! They are covered in the same faux fur and ribbon as the dress and should help you to stay at least a little warmer.
INTO THE COLD
If you end up out in the cold while you're in costume, what will you do? Do you know how to build an igloo or any kind of snow shelter? No? We don't either. Let's just hope that it doesn't come to anything like that!
