This homemade costume for babies entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 2nd place in the Cutest Baby Costume nomination!

A word from Abigail, the 'Maleficent' costume creator:

Emma Budd is wearing a home made costume of Maleficent. She was 6 days old when we brought her to her first movie. We made the costume out of a piece of cloth and lots of duct tape. The horns were wrapped with twine and electrical tape. The whole costume cost approx $25. I combined all the ideas from youtube and pinterest.

Colleen-I made costumes for my dogs to be part of the characters from the movie. I got a simple template online for dog clothes and you can use that as a base for your outfit and just use the duct tape to make scales on the dress. On emma's outfit I used a triangle pattern for the scales. But be careful you don't want your dogs coming out looking like lizards. For the head piece I suggest a hood or cap to attach horns in so you can attach it to the dogs head easier. You just need to shop for horns to your dogs head scale. Then just wrap it with duct tape.

Mavra-this is a tough one but I'll tell if you pull it off it would look really cute. So what I did for the dress is get a long rectangular piece of cloth twice the size of the baby and cut out a circle in the middle. If you fold it in half the hole is where her head goes. Just determine which is the front then use duct tape to create the scales for the dress. Because it was to boxy looking I wrapped up a small piece of fabric with duct tape and used it as a belt. As for the head piece you can find a black bennie and just poke holes through to attach horns. Again you need to shop for horns to the scale of your baby's head and something to look for would be something light weight so they can hold up. Then just wrap in duct tape the horns so it matches the outfit. Hopefully this helps. Good luck

How did you make the top? Is it just made out of tape or what did you wrap it over ? just love this trying to make one for my daughter

Renina-its a piece of cloth that I cut out a circle in the middle for her neck. So it came out long enough to look like a dress. I then added duct tape and made patterns with it to look like scales. Then I made a small belt to hold it together.

Hi Abi,
How do you make the horn and stay on the head?
I have a one year old I love to make her one that will stay

Bobbi-I would sell it to you but it's in storage and I don't know if I still have all the pieces together. Amy-I used a headband and attached some devil horns to it. Then I used a piece of cloth and attached it to the headband as well and wrapped it up as a turban then I pinned them in place once I got it to where I needed it. I also used a dummy head to shape it because my baby at the time would not sit still. Hope this helps.
