Cap'n Crunch Costume
Me and the Cap'n making it happen
|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Lauren, the 'Cap'n Crunch' costume creator:
I had a hard time picking a costume this year, but once I settled on Cap地 Crunch, I knew I had my work cut out for me. It took about a week to finish, but it was definitely worth it.
I started by hitting up Goodwill with my box of Cap地 Crunch in hand to find a jacket and pants. Everything else came from my local craft store or my closet.
The shoulder pieces are made out of modeling clay, and the buttons and trim details are yellow felt. To get the collar to stand up straight, I glued blue felt onto posterboard.
The hat was by far the trickiest (and most impressive) part. It痴 made out of cardboard (front, back, and bottom), blue paper (sides), and pipecleaners (edging). I used strips of cardboard to brace the hat on the inside so it would keep its shape.
I知 really stinking proud of this hat. It held up all day at work, all evening while I was running errands, and all night at a costume party.
I fashioned eyebrows and a mustache out of craft fur and then I was ready to roll! I wore my costume to work and then out grocery shopping on Halloween, and I had a lot of people ask to take pictures with me. It was a big hit and I had a ton of fun making it!
