Headless Girl Halloween Costume

she lost her head

Costume type:  Costumes for Girls
Category:Halloween Costumes

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

A word from Karen, the 'Headless Girl' costume creator:

My daughter Julia is the girl who lost her head lol. I made this costume for around $20. I used a damaged plastic mannequin torso that I bought at one of those display retail stores for $4, the clothes I bought at a good will store, paints I already had, pool noodles with bail wire that my husband brought from work for the arms. It took a few days to make but it was worth it! LOVE HALLOWEEN!!!!! Enjoy and if you have any questions please feel free to email me, k vuillermetkaren [at] comcast.net

Debbie G send me your email address to:
vuillermetkaren (at sign) comcast (dot) net and I'll take detail pictures for you o.k. and explain each one. The Torso just the top front 1/2 (shall) of the body that I bought from a store in Philadelphia, PA that sells all kinds of store display furniture, mannequin's of all shapes and sizes. The bail wire or you can use HD wire (so when you bend the arms they stay) I put the wire through the noodles and I grave yard hands that I bought a awhile from a Halloween store that I took the stuffing out of and duct taped them to the ends. Like I said I'll take pictures for you o.k. Hear from you soon

It is only Summer , but I am already thinking ahead to Halloween. I know it has been a few years since you made this costume, but if you still have photos with instructions, please email them to me. I'd really appreciate it. Thank you, Dona Kubina. gdkkubina[at]yahoo.com

I am trying to do something similar for my child but cannot seem to get the top part to stay right. I do not have a torso but am trying to make it with different objects but am having some problems assembling. Any details or pics would be helpful. Email is sburgettmsw[at]outlook.com. Going shopping today for the clothes as the first ones I bought are not working Thank you
