Girl in a Flamingo Pool Float Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Couples
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for couples entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Dana, the 'Girl in a Flamingo Pool Float' costume creator:

So this one is completely unique idea we come up with. Making the costume took us a couple of days, but the costume got many feedbacks and compliments!
The material we have used:
For the flamingo:
Pink feather boas
Goggle eyes
Elastic
Scissors
Glue
Pink, black and Yellow EVA
Half styrofoam ball
Pink headband
For the pool float:
Baby pink felt
Scissors
Black fabric paint
Paint brushes Red, black and Brown
0.5 kg stuffing
Hand Sewing Needle + Thread
Wig
Flip flops
For the flamingo headband I have followed the next YouTube tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A47Xg1AoT3c with some small changes. But watching this video should be sufficient.
My mom sewed a pink dress and we attached the pink feather boas to an elastic that I wore on the dress. However, using a pink dress or a pink shirt should be enough! I have also bought flamingo earrings to complete the look. I wore black high heels.
My boyfriend was dressed as a girl which is going to the swimming pool. We have bought a XXXL white shirt and we drew a bikini on the both sides of the shirt. We first drew lines with a black fabric paint and then we colored the bikini and the body. You can buy those kind of shirts, but we made it by ourselves which made it more special!
We took pink felt and drew two circles, the small one in the size of the waist of the person who is going to wear the costume and the second one is a bit larger. We sewed those two together, but we left a little space in order to fill the pool float with stuffing. Afterwards, we finished the sewing.
The last thing don't forget to wear the wig and the flip flops! Shaving the beard is a great bonus to make the costume more reliable!
And that all! Have fun and make everyone laugh with this unique costume!
