Twin Magic Costume

Twin Magic

Costume type:  Costumes for Girls
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for girls entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Heidi, the 'Twin Magic' costume creator:

I like for my identical twins to compliment each other, yet be different.

I thought of this idea and had a very hard time making it come to life. I used a lot of recycled products and dollar store items as well.

The bunny hat is made out of two recycled hampers. Covered with costume fabric. The supports within are elastic pieces. The bunny costumes was recycled from very large poodle ...I cut the head off and moved all the parts to the body...such as the ears were floppy and I added wire and put them on barrettes. I put the poof ball from on top of the head on her bottom which made a wonderful tail.

The magician was a bit easier, I used a recycled black long sleeve shirt (was cat in the hat last year)...cut and glued a star vest on it...made her a silver bow tie and another silver bow tie for the bunny ears as well...I tied a black tutu in by adding more silver to the bottom of that as well. Her wand was made from dollar store find I just added white duct tape also found at the dollar store. The hat was one thing I had to buy...I just added pink ribbon to match the two hats and cape.

The girls wearing the costumes are ANNA and AVA twins.

Hey Cierra, my kids used this costume for 3 years and next year will be unable fit. WE have to fix/repair it yearly to get it ready for use. The fixes are simple like buying a black shirt and reglue material on front cut like a vest...I take the tie and buttons off the old shirt and re attach them to the new shirt and done. The bunny usually needs some simple stitch repair and spot cleaning.
If you would like to buy this costume in the shape it's in we could sell it to you? Maybe 40 plus shipping? Garciahei[at]aol.com
