Stick Figure Costume

Stick Figure Costume

 

Today I thought I’d opt for a little bit of a quirky costume with my take on a stick figure drawing come to life. Also, as always, super easy to re-create for your Halloween costume party needs.

The Ring Costume

The Ring girl costume

 

Today I thought I’d create a more conventional-creepy Halloween style costume. So I went the creepiest I could go with the most minimal of elements – the little girl from The Ring. The beauty of this costume is all you need to pull it off is a simple white dress and a REALLy long brown wig.

50’s Housewife Costume

50's Housewife Costume

Today I created a 50’s housewife costume, with a little bit of a twist. I’ve gone for the mid-ready-point where she is almost immaculate, but has just her hair to go. It’s a funner version on a typical look.

Sexy Ghost Costume

Mean Girls got it right when it said:

” In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”

It is the night where every and anything is turned “sexy”, with that said, here is my take on the classic sheet ghost costume turned sexy…or rather, hilarious.

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a costume, so I thought it best to make it up with one that makes me look ridiculous – presenting to to you the Scuba Steve costume inspired by a re-watching of Big Daddy. Oh Adam Sandler, why you no make no good movies no more?

How to: Mad Scientist Costume

Home made Mad Scientist costume

 

What You’ll Need

White Coat

Gloves

Newspaper

Large Plastic Jar (big enough to fit over your head)

Razor

Pillow

Cardboard

Flesh coloured paper or paint

Red paint or cellophane

Stapler

Sticky tape

 

Method

  1. Fill the gloves with newspaper so that become solid.
  2. Staple the gloves to the sleeves of the white coat.
  3. Using a razor cut out the bottom of the large plastic jar so that your head can fit through the bottom.
  4. Cut out a neck shape in the cardboard and cover in the flesh coloured paper or in flesh coloured paint and then paint the top neck area in red paint or with red cellophane.
  5. Staple the bloody neck to the back part of the neckline of the white coat.
  6. Place the pillow into the chest area of the coat ensuring that the shoulders are filled out.
  7. In order to put the costume all together, place the pillow area of the coat behind your neck so that it rests on your shoulder and then button it up with your arms down your sides and then place the plastic jar over your head and then sticky tape the stuffed gloves to the sides of the jar so that it looks as if your head is being held.

How to: Alien coming out of stomach costume

How to: Alien coming out of stomach costume

If you’ve ever seen Alien, you’ll know it for one of its most famous scenes – when an alien erupts out of Kane’s stomach. For Halloween last year, I re-created this moment with my home made alien coming out of my stomach top.

 

What you’ll need

Shirt

Flesh coloured stockings

2 print-outs of the alien

Cotton stuffing or tissues

Sewing needle and thread

Scissors

Red food dye

Sticky tape

 

Method

  1. Lay down your top on top of some newspaper and also place some newspaper in-between the two sides of the top.
  2.  Pour some red food dye on the area that you would like the alien to protrude out of. Leave to dry.
  3. Cut a leg off of a pair of flesh coloured stockings and then and the midway point fold half of the stocking into itself to strengthen it.
  4. Fill with cotton stuffing or tissues until it is full.
  5. Put the top on and using a needle and thread sew the stuffed stocking onto the top in the middle of the bloody food dye area. As you sew it be sure to do it so that it protrudes out of the top.
  6. Then cut out the print outs of the alien and tape an image to each side.
  7. Voila! You know have an alien top that will be the envy of all of your friends.
