Leg Lamp from "A Christmas Story"
Full Leg Lamp Costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kaity, the 'Leg Lamp' costume creator:
I was the infamous Leg Lamp from the film, "A Christmas Story." Christmas and Halloween are my two favorite holidays, so I wanted to combine them together while adding a bit of an untraditional/unique characteristic to it: the lampshade actually lights up!
I bought a cheap lampshade from Walmart, cut out the middle support system, cut a slit down the back and hot glued black fringe to the bottom. I also bought a pack of battery-powered lights and safety pinned them to my clothing underneath the shade so it was illuminated.
I slipped the shade around my waist over previous owned items: a black v-neck, black yoga shorts, black fishnet tights and black pumps.
The total cost of this costume was around $13, and it was a HUGE hit at the Halloween parties I attended!
