Sour Patch Kids Costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Raykel, the 'Sour Patch Kids' costume creator:
Our costume is a family costume. Worn by Mom, Dad and two sons ages 3 & 9.
These costumes are mostly handmade by myself, the mother. The idea developed because I lovingly refer to my youngest as our "sour patch kid" because he's either very sweet or very sour. I decided to make it into a family costume by having myself and my husband be the "sour patch box" and my sons be the " sour patch kids".
Box Materials: Parent Costumes
Dollar store poster board letters in orange red and green $1each
3 thick poster boards. One lime green(box sides) and two yellow( front of box) $1-3each
Thin poster boards in lime green and black (dollar store $1 each)
Sticker back glitter paper in various cokors. (Less then $1 each at Michael's)
1 computer printed paper with a large red sour patch kid on it.
Total cost: about $16
Directions. Used the poster board letters to create the logo. Used the black poster paper behind and poster board letters. Cut out a few glitter sour patch figures to add around board. Printed out a "Sweet then Sour" text off the computer. Hand drew the packaging weight and grams as box stated. Used glue stick and hot glue to secure materials. For sides I cut the thick lime green board in half and drew tabs on the both sides. I used the thin lime green paper to trim the front and blend with the sides of the box. Used hot glue to attach the sides to front of box. We wore the box by using a simple string around our necks, held on by extra sticker glitter paper and hot glue.

Using almost one whole glitter paper I drew out a sour patch kid face shape according to the glasses size(mask). Then using the other glitter paper I cut out two large circles for eyes and then cut out a small circle from inside each large eye cut out. I also cut out a mouth. On the face(mask) glitter cut out, I then had to cut out the same size small circles for eyes. On the back of the mask I lined up the glasses with the small holes and secured it to the glitter mask with hot glue. Then glued the large eye rings and the mouth onto the front. Make sure to line up the small circle from mask to large rings. When done I sprayed the body suits with silver glitter
I also printed out the original sour patch th logo onto carstock paper and hot glued hat onto a $1 store tote bag for candy bags.
