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

A word from Crystal, the 'Blowfish' costume creator:

My daughter was selected to be a blowfish for her school play and it turned out so well we used it for Halloween. Most people didn't believe me when I told them I made it overnight, but that was all the time I had! Working full-time and school full-time didn't leave me much choice, but less than 24 hrs later this is what I accomplished!

This was handmade with fabrics off the bargain rack at our local craft store. I had 15 minutes before they closed and these were just the fabrics I picked that I thought would work...and it turned out amazing! This is my favorite costume I have ever made!

I remember I feel asleep, before I went to bed there has all this fabric on the table, I asked her what it was for she told me a costume she had to make for my grand daughters school skit. I said oh when's her skit she said tomorrow. OOOh! When I woke the next morning for work it was hanging in the door way. Amazing

Thanks! Yes 1 very long night, but SO worth it! It's just stuffing ( lots of it) between the inside lining and the outside.

Could you make one for my daughter in size 12? She is the blow fish in The Little Mermaid production in our town. The show is a very big deal here in small town NC. I would be glad to pay you. I need it by Oct. 4th. Thanks.

Crystal, I need the boy version of this costume! My 4 year old is obsessed with pufferfish and really wants to be one for Halloween. Can you post instructions on how to make this or provide any guidance to an amateur costume maker?

Any chance this is for sale? If so please email me at richardsonmelissa[at]yahoo.com. My daughter was assigned this part for a school play!

are there directions you could share?

#10 comment by crystal March 20, 2014

Unfortunately no directions. I truly just eyeballed every stitch of it using a makeshift dress mold of my daughter. New ideas for the eyes and mouth came after I put the body together. I apologize to Jennifer, Anshal, and Melissa for not responding sooner. I never received an alert from the site, but I am an amateur myself who comes up with crazy costume ideas and throws them together overnight! :)
