This homemade costume for couples entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Caitlyn, the 'Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox' costume creator:

Well, it all started when my boyfriend promised to participate with me as long as he could keep his beard. So, who better to be than Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox? My boyfriend is Bodie Bridges and his was pretty much an everyday outfit of his plus the suspenders.. Mine was a little trickier due to having to match up the right blue. I bought a royal blue long sleeve leotard with royal blue stockings. I attached some blue fuzzy material to the stockings. Then, i found a blue headband and some devil horns, painted the horns yellow, and glued them on! I also bought a fake nose ring to act as a bull ring. Finally, i bought blue yarn to braid a tail with and attached it with a blue glittery bow. We loved the outcome!

I love it!! Where did you buy your leotard?

#6 comment by Caitlyn October 15, 2013

Tiffany, I think Danskin online if I remember correctly. If not, it was some online dance apparel store :)

Hey! We're copying you guys this year but I can't choose the perfect fake bull ring. Which one did you use?

Could you send me instructions on how you made it? Thanks

Hey Corinne!! I guess I'll start from head to toe.. I bought a blue head band from wal mart (medium in width but large width would be good if not better). From the party store, I bought two demon horns that had mesh on the base of them (they were to apply to your forehead and cover with gory makeup). I painted them yellow, cut the excess flap of mesh off and super glued the bases to my headband. The "bull ring" is also from the party store. Plastic. And came in a $1 fake piercing set.. it just slipped right onto my nose.the leotard and tights were from a dance company website. For my tail (not in pic), I bought yarn and braided 3 thick bundles.. tied yarn around the top and bottom so it stayed. And then safety pinned from the inside. Oh the cow bell is on yarn too... I had that around my house. Lastly, the fuzzy legging things were from the party store too. And I'm just wearing some old round toe brown boots of mine underneath.

Of course everything my boyfriend has on he already owned :) I hope this helps!
