|Costume type:||Costumes for Groups|
This homemade costume for groups entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Flo, the 'Barbies: Limited Edition' costume creator:
We are three Office Coordinators who work together in a mobile games company in Vancouver. Every year our company host a Halloween Party so we decided we would do a theme; Barbies. Not just any Barbies - but Limited Edition Barbies! One of us has just went through a hair transformation so she decided it would be best to actually go as Ken, so she bronzed up, used her retro camera, wore a fanny pack and went as "Ken On Vacation". As Marijuana is legalized here in Canada; one of us went as "Baked Edition Barbie", She created a larger than life fake joint and wore a stoner hat and some hippie clothes. "80's Workout Barbie" looks like an exact replica of actual barbie with her shiny yellowish hair and tanned body and HUGE smile. We dumpster dived for our boxes and used a massive TV box that one of the IT guys provided us with to create the Barbie boxes. We bought wrapping paper to line in the inside according to our editions and we all used bright pink wrapping paper to cover the outside. We printed our text across multiple sheets of paper and put broccoli in a little zip lock bag for the "marijuana". Everyone at the party loved our costumes and we won the group prize due to the serious amount of time and effort that went into it. We also did a robotic dance to "Barbie girl" whilst inside the boxes which was a hit!
