Gnomeo and Juliet Costume

Gnomeo and Juliet - Twins!

Costume type:  Costumes for Babies
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

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

A word from Christina, the 'Gnomeo and Juliet' costume creator:

These are my twin 18-month-olds, Nile and Wynne as Gnomeo and Juliet! My kids all love this movie so it was the perfect choice for the twins. I made both costumes out of upcycled clothing from Goodwill and Juliet's skirt is an upcycled pillowcase from Goodwill and a sash I found at home (sewn by me). The hats were sewn from cheap fabric remnants I found at WalMart for $1.50 -- Gnomeo's vest was a shirt from Goodwill that I cut sleeves off of and hemmed, and added a felt belt that I cut out and used heat bond to apply. We also had artificial roses and a pink flamingo in the wagon, but my little lady is sitting on them! Juliet had little black patent leather shoes (we had already) and Gnomeo wore his own khaki pants and black shoes. They were a big hit in our neighborhood!

Can you give a tutorial on how you made this?

#4 comment by Christina Kroemer December 1, 2014

I don't really have a tutorial, but did a lot of perusing local goodwill stores for items to "upcycle". The blue vest was a blue pullover sweatshirt that I cut the sleeves off, and made the belt out of felt and hot-glued on. Their hats were both cut/sewn out of old sweatshirts as well (I found a large red one and a large blue one). The dress was a goodwill find too -- I just added a white shirt underneath, a black ribbon sash, and a white doll apron. Once I get an idea, I typically shop thrift stores for fabric (cutting apart clothes) and notions (pulling buttons, ribbons, etc off of existing items). It takes a while, I start weeks before Halloween .. but it's like a treasure hunt! :)
