Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum Costumes
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Jessica, the 'Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum' costume creator:
My mom is wearing Tweedle Dee and I am wearing Tweedle Dum. We both enjoy all of the Alice in Wonderland movies and decided to create the costumes using the Disney animated movie. We started out with yellow and red felt and just laid it out to how we wanted it to look. We drew the pattern, sewed both pieces together and then found hula hoops to help push out the costume. We used yarn to tie the hula hoop in place. After completing the base outfit, we decided how we wanted the collar and tie to look and just cut out the pieces and glued them down with fabric glue. We used velcro to help close the back. We found the hats at a party store and decided to go with pig tails to make the outfit complete. This costume could be made easily with or without a sewing machine. We wanted to go fun, yet easy. The felt kept us warm to the point where we had to wear tanks tops and shorts under the costume.
The costume is easy to put on and off but a bit difficult to walk in due to how we cut the legs to make it look more like the movie characters. People we met loved the costume and it scored us a full chocolate bar! We were even able to go to a paint night in it! Overall, we enjoyed it and would wear it again.
