This homemade costume for girls entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 1st place in the Best Children's Costume nomination!

A word from Renee, the 'Lounge Singer' costume creator:

My daughter is standing with a wig on and the piano as you can see is just hanging from her shoulders. I made the piano out of foam board and duct tape. The legs are old tights and I cut the dress to go on her and still have enough to lay on the piano. She wore black tights and black shorts. It's mostly about making a real looking piano and I just cut my shape out by looking at a picture of one.

What did you stuff the nylons with to make them look real and also what did you use to make the keyboard

I just used thick panty hose or even nude colored tights. I stuffed them with regular craft stuffing.
The whole piano is made out of foam board. The key to every costume for me is the tape - I use the silver (almost foil looking) tape used for dryer vents. It sticks amazing and molds around all cardboard or foam board.

Hope this helps! Thanks

Is that tape holding up on her shoulder or a strap. If it's a clear strap where did you buy it from?

That is NOT tape... It is actually just cut from a piece of clear tablecloth cover. You can buy it by the yard at JoAnns then just cut it into strips... Hope that helps :)
