Gizmo & Stripe Costume

Gizmo & Stripe Costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Kids
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for kids entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 1st place in the Best Children's Costume nomination!

A word from Sara, the 'Gizmo & Stripe' costume creator:

Here is my daughter, Harlow (4) as Gizmo, and my son Gunner (9) as Spike! My daughter LOVES Gremlins, and she packs a Gizmo doll wherever she goes. Her brother is being a great sport this year. ;-)

The Gizmo pattern actually came from a Wizard of Oz loin costume, and I modified it as a gremlin. This is the first time I have EVER followed any sort of pattern. Spike is a green skin suit, and I painted his markings. Both sets of ears are paper mache, using cardboard, expand foam, newspaper and modge podge. I have roughly $80 in Gizmo (pretty fur is a little pricey) and $30 in Spike.

Happy Halloween!!
