Paris Snow Globe Costume

Human Paris Snow Globe

Costume type:  Costumes for Girls
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for girls entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Angie, the 'Paris Snow Globe' costume creator:

My daughter Caroline is 9 years old. She wanted to be a human snow globe. She had seen a human Hawaii snow globe online, but she wanted to put her own creative spin on it. She loves Paris, so she decided to be a human Paris snow globe.

She dressed Parisian with black and white stripes, red beret, and red scarf. For accessories in the globe, she put an Eiffel tower and a small paint palette. We used foam insulation board for the base to make it stable, then we put a layer of soft foam on top and painted it green. We used sheets of acetate to resemble the glass in a globe. We used predecorated foam snow balls for the snow, and we hung them with clear fishing wire from the top of the acetate dome. We used a thick layer of foam to put around the base and painted it black. We cut the PARIS letters out of soft foam and painted them red.

What measurements of acetate did u use? What thickness??

That is a great question! Unfortunately, I don't recall the thickness or the length as we made this over 3 years ago. I do remember making a couple of trips to the local art store in my area, Asel Art Supply (Dallas, TX) to get the thickness right. I had to tape the acetate together with clear tape in the back, and cut holes for air and hands. This is a really fun project, good luck!
