Madam Mysteria Fortune Teller
|Costume type:||Costumes for Girls|
This homemade costume for girls entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Tammy, the 'Madam Mysteria Fortune Teller' costume creator:
Our sixteen year old daughter is a magician and escape artist by profession. She loves anything magical or mystical, so naturally she wanted to dress up as something that showed her personality. She decided to be a fortune teller, but we took it a step further and made her into an old fashioned forturn telling booth. We used four black tri-fold boards turned wrong side out so the black would be facing out. We hot glued the two bottom boards together and then worked on the top two boards. We covered the top back board with white and black table cloth like material to decorate it. We then took the front top board and cut three windows and taped lightweight plexiglass on the inside of the boards to make it more realistic and give additional strength. The two top pieces were hot glued together and then we drilled hole in the top of the bottom half and bottom of the top half and attatched them with thin rope. The box then went over her head and she then placed a foam board covered in black cloth around her waist. She held playing cards and dressed in a black outfit with black tule around her shoulders to add a mysterious look. We embellished the outside of the box with stickers and ribbon to decorate it. While in costume, she acted very stiff and animated like the old fashioned machines would. We had so many compliments on her costume about creativity and imagination. She even scared a few people who thought she was an actual mannequin. Many people had their picture made with her. We took her to a local festival and entered her into the costume contest and she won second place for her category. The cost for this costume was under $15.00
