|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
This costume took many hours to make! It started with a white tank top, fabric, candy, styrofoam and glitter. I made everything, or fixed things that I bought! I cut the tank top in the back and inserted wire and eyelets to make a lace up corset back. Almost all of the candy is real. The ice cream and cupcake I made from extra material from the skirt and lots of glitter. Every sprinkle was glued on one by one all over the costume. The "cherries" are fireball candies, the necklace is all real candy! The candy cane is pipe cleaners wrapped with ribbon. The tights were white and I had to die them pink, and the shoes where plain white but I added bows. The wig needed to be straightened and most of the hair was cut out of it to make it less poofy. The skirt was made from scratch and sewed by me.
