Amelia Earhart and her Hot Air Balloon
|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Danielle, the 'Amelia Earhart and her Hot Air Balloon' costume creator:
My daughter, Olivia, is wearing the costume. She wanted to be a hot air balloon so my mom and I got to working on it ASAP. It took us awhile to figure out how to get it together but we finally did it and she looked great!
We used a basket, hula hoop and fabric. My mom made the pants, jacket and scarf Olivia is wearing. She also made the balloon cover and the fringe around the balloon. The goggles were swimming goggles we spray painted black and the balloon inside the fabric is a 36"
Balloon we blew up with air inside of the fabric and we set it into the hula hoop. The hula hoop is being held up by 4 dowel rods we zip tied and hot glued into each corner of the basket.
