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

A word from Suzanne, the 'Ice Queen' costume creator:

My 12 year old daughter, Brooklyn, wanted to be something scary, but I wanted her to be something pretty, so we compromised on her being an Ice Queen. I made her crown from Chrismas decorations and crystals that I hot glued onto a base for a crown.

My good friend made her costume cape and I sewed several feather boas to the bottom of it. Her dress was an old plain costume dress that we got from a thrift store and altered to fit her.

I made her ice fingers out of nylon tubing and coated them with resin and then crystals and shaped them along pipe cleaners to bend in a creepy way.

Amie, I tried something the other day that works very well for the ice crystals. I had bought some sparkling sugar flakes in the cake decorating section of Joann Fabrics and my daughter suggested using honey as an adhesive. The honey "glued" the flakes to my skin and that way, if any flakes fall off into my drink or food, it's edible, not metallic or plastic glitter. And a good benefit of using honey is that it's very good for your skin. ;-)

Perfect! We will try that. Thank you! Also any suggestions for the white face make up? And did you use the same stuff for the hands?

I am doing this costume for this Halloween, so I don't have it all together yet. However, I don't like the white white makeup (what I call clown white) so I found some "real" makeup that gives a pearlescent white-ish look. For a base coat, I will use L'Oreal Magic Lumi. Over that I will use Maybelline Color Tatoo eyeshadow in "Too Cool", a pearlescent white. I think it may take 2 or 3 layers of that. I've practiced with it a little and I think it will look good. However, if you want to be more frugal, the costume whit will work. You may want to put it on with a damp sponge to keep it from looking like clown white. As for the hands, yes, I will use the same thing on all visible body parts. Btw, I think you can just use the Maybelline eye shadow. I just tried it without the L'Oreal and it's pretty white on its own.

I used crystals that I found at Michaels and used surgical adhesive (similar to eyelash glue) to glue them around her face.

As far as the white makeup, I airbrushed her face with a makeup that is resistant to wearing off through the night. There are several nice face paints out there, Wolfe brothers is my favorite. The hands were airbrushed as well, but could very well be done with a sponge or brush

This is a long shot since it is now 2019, but I just love the hair. Can you share the wing name and color?
