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

A word from Taisha, the 'Mrs. Butterworth's Syrup' costume creator:

This costume came to me one night as I was browsing through ideas for Halloween on the internet. I was looking for something creative, easy to look the part, and that had never been done before and I came up with the idea based on my skin complexion. At first i wanted to be Aunt Jemima but Mrs. Butterworth had more to work with.

I started out buying the apron, the dress, the collar. Got a Red Apron from Savers for about $2, the dress for $6 and the collar was cut off a dress shirt I bought for $2. Tailored the apron to be the correct length with a sewing machine bc it was a little long and I wanted to dress to show. I had the yellow bandana and used it as a "cap" in my hair.

My mom found me the yellow squiggly trim and foam material for the letters at walmart (don't know the price).

Traced all letters from the internet onto regular paper, cut those out and used them as stencils for tracing onto the foam. I then cut them out and glued them on the apron with fabric glue (wasn't the best choice bc they kept falling off; i suggest a glue gun instead.)

The bottom yellow letters that say original etc are traced from yellow post-it notes and glued to foam outlines. I made the butter from a yellow post it note glued to a foam outline and used brown sharpie for the letters inside. Used a red solo cup for the pocket

Side note: I double layered the trim around the border of the apron and bordered the red solo cup pocket with the same yellow trim but only one layer.

For the more "PG-13" outfit, I replaced the dress with a black crop top that I bought at urban outfitters a while back and a pair of black shorts.

I'm glad you didn't dress as
Aunt Jemima. You must not know about the history of Aunt Jemima aka mammie.
