This homemade costume for women entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Monica, the 'Cotton Candy' costume creator:

Submitting for the categories of: most creative and coolest adult.

This year, I wanted to dress as something pink, poofy, and sparkly for Halloween. Upon brainstorming, I came up with the perfect idea for a costume: cotton candy! I knew it would be fun to make, and it would be creative because cotton candy is definitely not a common Halloween costume.

The base of the costume is a light pink bralette, a light pink lacy tank top, and light pink spanks. I spray painted craft stuffing with pink spray paint. I chose hot pink and light pink and sprayed them from far away so that they blended well and weren't two defined separate colors. I figured two colors would work better than one to create some depth and prevent the cotton candy from looking flat. Once it was dry, I hot glued the stuffing in chunks to my bralette. I used a silver party hat, cut a slit down one side, and tightened the hat with hot glue so that it was thinner but still long. The elastic band from the hat is stretchy so I was able to simply place the poof of cotton candy stuffing underneath the hat and it rarely fell out of place. I used a roll of crochet material and three layers of pink tulle to create a no-sew tutu. I layered light pink tulle on the bottom, hot pink tulle in the middle, and sparkly medium pink tulle on the top. I applied hot pink blush and eyeshadow.. and voila! A fluffy pink costume of cotton candy.
