Mama on her nest
|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Nichole, the 'Mama Bird Sitting on Her Nest' costume creator:
I made this costume last year when I was 8 months pregnant, wanting to incorporate my belly.
I created a nest with cardboard, craftpaper and brown fabric that I had. I used dried tall grass and twigs from my yard and sewed them onto the nest. I tried hot glue initially but it didn't work. So, sewing was a must. It, miraculously, sat on my belly and stayed up.
I cut off a white long sleeve tshirt and sewed a feather boa around the bottom and and the collar for bird feathers.
I purchased a bird beak and a simple white eye mask. I sewed the beak onto the mask and glued individual feathers from the boa around the mask.
I wore a blue tight tank top to mimic a blue egg.
My goal every year is to come up with the best costume for the least amount of money. I like the challenge. This costume cost me around $12 to make. It was fairly easy to wear (except in the car) and I could even sit down in it. It was a hit! Now, I'm struggling to come up with something this year...
