Costume type:  Costumes for Groups
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for groups entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest, and won a special prize in the Most Creative Costume nomination!

A word from Gabbie, the 'Candyland' costume creator:

Characters from Candyland. Queen Candy, Miss Mint, Princes Lolli, and Queen Frostine.

Gabbie came up with the idea, we all love color and expressing ourselves.

These are all handmade. We only bought the corsets (white originally) and the tulle and hoop skirts (white orginally) to build everything off of. Everything else was created from armatures of wire, glue, and mesh.

We began by dying our corsets the desired color. Then we all began embellishing the corsets with sequins, rhinestones, melted down pony beads, acrylic paint, ribbon, beads, and so much more. We moved onto our skirts where we continued to add embellishments.

We bought old shoes from goodwill and covered them in embellishments as well. We created our staffs from styrofoam, wood dowels, PVC pipe, and more.

We are crafty and artistic girls. We LOVE making our own costumes. We hope you enjoy!

Did you also Dye your skirts or did you use only acrylic paint?

#3 comment by Gabbie June 27, 2013

The skirts are made from layers of many different types of fabric! The costumes aren't for sale.

#5 comment by Gabbie August 13, 2013

I'm sorry they aren't for sale! They were one of a kind pieces we made for ourselves...we don't manufacture costumes. Thank you!!!

I would like to know how you made the cupcake cane for queen candy thank you!

#10 comment by Gabbie October 7, 2013

Dowel rod for the staff. Styrofoam based for the top cupcake base, cotton balls for the frosting. The ball at the end is styrofoam. The embellishments are sequins, rhinestones, glitter foam, acrylic paint, glitter glue and glitter!!

What material did you use for the game pieces on queen Candys cane? I have felt you think that would work?

#12 comment by Gabbie October 21, 2013

Kids craft styrofoam! Felt would work too!!

#13 comment by kandy October 21, 2013

Sorry another question! What did you use to make the crown that queen candy wears?

#14 comment by Gabbie October 21, 2013

It's actually a tree topper! That was the armature, a crown like tree topped with extra additions like glitter rhinestones and foam :)

#15 comment by Nell October 24, 2013

Where did you buy the corsets & tulle from? The corsets especially look like they're good quality!

Wonderful job! When you bought the dye for the costumes, were instructions included with the dye? I would really like to try this at some point.
