|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Nancy, the 'Jellyfish' costume creator:
I'm wearing the costume. I saw a live-action show over the summer with Jellyfish on stage, and I thought I could modify their design a bit by using an umbrella. I found pictures online of jellyfish and jellyfish costumes, and I tweaked here, there, and everywhere to allow for materials I had on hand. I used a clear umbrella, which I covered with some translucent wrapping paper, and used a bit of duct tape to attach some battery-powered LED blue lights to the top of the umbrella. I cut up some shimmery gauze-type material in strips and attached those to the inside of the umbrella. I used about one yard each of purple, pink, and violet material. I sewed a basting stitch down the center of each strip, which provided nice ruffly ridges. I used some ED light strings interspersed with the fabric strips to add a little more pizzazz. I wore dark clothes under the umbrella. Fun to make - fun to wear!
