Barbie & Ken - Homemade costumes for couples

Check out "how-to" instructions for home made Barbie in the Box Costume.

Costume type:  Costumes for Couples
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Toys and Dolls Costumes

This homemade costume for couples entered our 2010 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Erika, the 'Barbie and Ken' costume creator:

I made the boxes myself; here are the instructions:

I bought 2 U-haul Garment boxes, cut the bottom out and then cut the front in the shape of a doll box opening. Then I spraypainted the inside light pink, the outside bright pink and painted the ribbons around the cut-out in the front.

I also downloaded, enlarged and printed Mattel and Barbie logos, and made and printed the Ken logo as well as the other phrases.

Did you use a belt to hold up the boxes?

#5 comment by erika October 8, 2013

Hi all, no we just carried the boxes. They got difficult as the party filled up because of space and not being able to see 360. But they made for great pictures! :-)
