This homemade costume for women entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Chelsea, the 'Tamagotchi' costume creator:

I've been having some '90s nostalgia lately and really wanted to turn that into a funny Halloween costume. I remembered my old Tamagotchi toy and thought it would be perfect! Was feeling in a silly mood for Halloween this year.

I cut the sandwich board out of foam core, painted it with neon acrylic paint, and created the screen out of a thick piece of clear rubber(one of those computer desk covers you can get at Staples)and taped neon green EL wire on the inside so it could light up. My very talented husband drew the pixelated figures with Sharpie and painted the Tamagotchi logo. I never wear pink in everyday life so I decided to go all out with the neon pink ensemble!
