Craft queen Stacey Solomon has left her family and fans in hysteria after her latest crafting attempt.
The mom of three has been busy creating an elaborate costume for fiancee Joe Swash, ahead of their son Rex’s second birthday, and the results are hilarious.
Based on Tamatoa, the wicked crab who loves all that glitters, Joe’s look is definitely eye-catching.
Writing on her Instagram Stories, Stacey shared the steps for the homemade costume, with the caption, “Trying to make Joe a shiny Tamatoa Crab costume for Rex’s birthday and it doesn’t look very suitable for a party. toddlers, ”with a laughing crying emoji.
Stacey and one of her two eldest sons, Leighton, could be heard laughing in the background, as Joe cheekily danced like a crab.
The following video showed a hilariously looking Joe wearing a tight purple bodysuit and giant googly eyes on top of his head, with a “ censored ” area covering his modesty.
Again, the family could be heard in stitches, with Stacey writing, “my nieces and nephews and the boys find it very funny.”
The third photo showed Joe posing with a cup of coconut, smiling in his suit – this time with hand-made crab claws strapped behind him.
This time Stacey wrote, “I’m trying so hard guys, but I don’t know if it’s my costume or Joe, but I’m crying real tears. Maybe his shiny shell and claws will help bring him closer… “
By the end of the series of clips, Stacey had become exasperated with her “model” whom she called a “worthwhile job,” adding that she had tried sewing arms for two hours.
We can’t wait to see the final costume.
