This homemade costume for girls entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Lela, the 'Candy Land Miss Mint and Lollipop Princess' costume creator:
Started out with the twins Jacklyn and Alayah wanting a costume pertaining to Candy Land,so I looked around on the internet and got the idea to use twisty balloons (260's). This was an experience, took me a few times of trial and error getting the right size and the balloons popping once in a while.After many hours of practice I got it to all come together,you have to weave the balloons together one at a time kinda like tying knots so if one balloon pops the whole dress will not pop since they are all individually tied off. Once I started to make the costumes a few days before Halloween it took about twelve hours for each. I estimate it took about 80 balloons for each costume. I decorated Alayah's dress the Lollipop Princess with lollipops,ribbons,bows and for her wings in back of dress used lighted balloons, for her shoes used pink duck tape and bows, made a hat out of lollipops and ribbon, made a lollipop wand and toy lollipop princess from the game Candy Land also used a pink tutu and decorated it with lollipops and green ribbon, she also had striped tights. Jacklyn was Miss Mint, I used peppermint candys, candy canes,white and red ribbons and a bow for the dress, for the hat I used a gramaphone and backwards visor hat covered in pink and white scarf,the shoes were red tape with bows,the shirt was made with a white shirt and red masking tape and she wore red tights,also made a candy cane axe with a candy cane yard ornament.The rest of the outfits was stuff I found around the house.Lots of tape and glue gun.The night of Halloween we went to the North West Arkansas mall for a costume contest. we got such a great reaction from people, and many photo shots.We ended up getting 2nd place for the 7-9 age group. We have made this our annual fun time to create a costume and the girls love it, plus making great memories.
