|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kimberly, the 'Cotton Candy' costume creator:
This is my 3 year old daughter. We saw this online and she instantly wanted to be cotton candy for halloween...she talked about it for months!
This costume was very easy to put together and pretty cheap too.
This is what you will need to make this:
- Old long sleeve shirt
- White tights
- Package of batting
- Spray adhesive
- Pink spray paint
- White poster board
- Pink ribbon
- Printer to print the cotton candy image
To make this I started by attaching the batting to the shirt using the spray adhesive. Just play with it as you go, it will fluff out the more you add. Then I used the light pink spray paint to make it look more realistic (and that's her fave color). For the cone, I just rolled a piece of white poster board into a cone shape, glued it and added some more batting to the bottom of that. I found an image online that I liked, printed it and just glued it onto the cone and TA-DA!!!!
She was the talk of the neighborhood, everyone loved it!
