|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kelly, the 'Earth and Beyond' costume creator:
Let me introduce you to this far out little Earth, who is my 5 year daughter. She wanted to be the world for Halloween! She wore her black dress with stars on it and black tights for the night sky. A $1 headband was used to a attach homemade stuffed sun and moon to each ear. The dollar store was a great place to find the star glasses and tinsel for her shooting star hair. To make the rocket, I used a clip art image and then cut the pieces out of felt, sewed them together and safety pinned it to her dress. For the earth, I used felt as well. I projected an image of the continents onto a screen, traced them onto paper, then cut them out of felt and glued them to the blue (ocean) circles. I added a back to each and stuffed both the hemispheres for a pillow look. Then I added heart buttons over Minnesota, where we live, and Thailand, where my daughter was born. You'll see a Thai flag on the rocket, in honor of her birth country. This costume came together for under $15. Thanks for letting me share!
