This homemade costume for girls entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Mary, the 'Red Shoe' costume creator:
The costume I created this year for Halloween was a red shoe. It was Halloween week when the idea came to me. I was running out of time for a Halloween costume, and needed to think of one fast. I looked at my shoes on my bedroom floor, and thought, "Hey, I'll be a shoe, because why not?!"
To create a shoe, I needed to gather materials that I had around my house. I used cardboard, hot glue, tape, red spray-paint, poster board, silver paper, and felt.
IN brief, here's what I did for this project:
I created templates for the shoe pieces out of paper. I then cut out the templates and drew the outline for pieces of the shoe onto cardboard. After tracing, I cut out the shoe pieces. I began the structure of the shoe by hot gluing two sides of the shoe to the base section. I then connected these two shoe sides by hot gluing a section in the heel area. The next step was to add the toe. I cut slits in order to create a small curve. I hot glued it in place. I added poster board to the outer of the shoe to give it a smooth look. After I glued poster board all around the shoe, I spray-painted the outside red. When the paint was dry, I glued the rim to the shoe, and put electrical tape along the rim. After, I glued the lace rings to the sides. When that was finished, I hot glued the laces. I then made final touches, and went off trick or treating with family.
I always enjoy making others happy by creating fun costumes on Halloween.
