Madagascar 2 Back from Africa is the hottest children's movie in theatres now. Madagascar was so successful that the film producers decided a sequel was needed. If you have a child that loves either movie you might consider creating a costume from the films. Gloria the Hippo is just one option you have from Madagascar that your children may love. The costume works great for costume parties like birthday parties.
Step 1: The best way to create your Gloria the Hippo costume from Madagascar is to find a pattern for a hippo. If you can't locate one in a fabric store consider searching online for the pattern.
Step 2: Once you have found the pattern you can begin to make the hippo's main body. Your hippo costume will allow the child to walk upright so the hands and arms will be the front set of hippo legs. The gray material will be used on the entire body for the hippo costume. In fact the gray material is for the feet, tail, and head.
Step 3: The pink material can be used for the mouth and inside the ears. It is best to follow the pattern for the head as well. You might consider just using a hood style head with the child's face as the hippo mouth if your pattern isn't explicit enough.
