This homemade costume for families entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Brandy, the 'Moana' costume creator:
My youngest 9 year old daughter is Tomatoa, I am dressed as Tecal and my other daughter who is 10 is Tafiti. The girls were very into Moana and all of it's different options available, so we decided to group costume this year.
Tomatoa's shell is made of foam insulation and gold paint. Her head is a hoodie she outgrew and we cut it apart and glued toilet paper rolls to the head and for the eyeballs I used some recycled packaging for the eyeballs, painted it with fingernail polish. The chest plate is the rest of the hoodie with the arms cut off and cardboard glued to the front and painted with spray paint. Her claws are glued to gloves with the fingers cut off, and they are made of Dow foam board. I attached with hot glue, several different blue rave finger lights, for accents, and also hot glued the ends of 2 glow necklaces to the head to use for the "antennae" glow sticks. I had a black body suit I used 8 years ago for a different costume, so I re-purposed it with fabric paint in neon colors, cellophane, and purchased raver finger lights in a package of 100, glued them all over it with hot glue. For Tafiti I found 2 old green blankets from the thrift store and hot glued flowers up the front and arms, and on a pair of house slippers, we purchased some Hawaiian leis and cuffs, painted her face and hands light green, dark eyebrows and lips, attached the green raver lights to her head, neck and wrist pieces. We are really looking forward to trick or treating tonight!
