This homemade costume for kids entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Jessica, the 'Easy Mac' costume creator:

My son, Hunter, is six years old and he loves Easy Mac. Hence he chose it for his costume, my daughter, Leah, who is three, also decided to be the same! I wrapped felt around a laundry basket and had the easy mac lable blown up at a local print shop. We pained toilet paper tubes with orange and yellow spray paint, which gave them a glossy look. The forks were from the dollar store and were devils pitchforks, which we spray painted silver to lookl lilke a fork and then glued on the "macaronis". I used foam board to go from the edge of the basket to their belly and painted it a cheesy color as well. Then we glued it all together and voila! I also made straps to hold it up for them! They are thrilled with their costumes!

This is a great idea! I'm just wondering how to get the Mac and Cheese label to be so clear when its blown up... please let me know if you have any tips on how to do this. I've been googling the labels but they are all lower resolution and print out not clear. Thanks! :)

AnDrea we took the original label to a printing shop and they enlarged it for only a couple dolLars! Have fun and hope it turns out great!

When you say you took the label to a local printing shop, do you mind saying what one? Like was it office max or staples, or more of an independently owned shop? Also, what image exactly did you take? When I've googled logos, they are so pixelated when enlarged. Thanks so much!
