|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Ashley, the 'Couple o' Clowns' costume creator:
My twin 4 year olds and my 2 year old girls dressed as clowns. I know clowns arent very "original" but I think we changed it up a bit to be cuter and more up to date. We already had the white ruffle shirts. The tutus are a no sew tutu where you just tie tulle in knots over a piece of elastic or ribbon (we used elastic so they can put them on themselves). I grabbed 3 different color suspenders and legwarmers from ebay and the pink wigs from kmart. I made the pom poms on the shirt with yarn , as well as the pom pom hat (pom poms glued to a winter ski hat). We also got little plastic hats from the party store.
They gave themselves clown names... rainbow squirt, little susie and ray ray the cray cray :p
20$ for rainbow tulle colors (with plenty left over to make a 4th or 5th for mom/dad etc. or do solid colors and not waste so much)
20$ for yarn (that's to get the rainbow colors if you want to make the pom pom hat, and use leftovers for shirts... still some leftover for other crafts)
15$ for each set of legwarmers
12$ for 2 wigs
8$ for 3 sets of suspenders
5$ 2 bowties from party store
80$ ish total for 3 costumes with lots of supplies left for other crafts later.
