Headless Girl Costume

Headless Child

Costume type:  Costumes for Girls
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for girls entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Melanie, the 'Headless Girl' costume creator:

This is my 5yr old daughter, Lexci. She had this idea to be a headless girl for more than a year now. I found the dress at a local thrift shop. I had an idea to use a rolling back pack with the handle extended up and tape a long piece of cardboard to it (shoulders) I then used an empty kool-aid container and taped it to the shoulders to make a neck. I then, wrapped it in brown paper and wanted it to be textured to make it look bloody so I came up with using hot glue and letting it drip and get stringy, then painted away! I cut a hole out for her head, stuffed the arms with plastic bags, added hands stuffed with paper, pinned them in place and added more "blood" and spider webs! Total cost: $6

Well done! I love how her head is proportionate to the the body of the dress. Ive been wanting to go as this for years now, just haven't been able to figure out how. I think I can try and do this too. Thanks.
