This homemade costume for women entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Danielle, the 'Scary Rotting Pumpkin' costume creator:

Carving pumpkins are my favorite part of Halloween so I decided why not be one for Halloween. My inspiration was carved pumpkins comes to life and gets revenge on pumpkin farm owner. I started out by making my skirt just using some brown tulle and then cutting the edges up to make it very jagged, I also bought a cheap pumpkin prop from dollar tree and tore the orange netting off and attached it around the waist of the skirt. I then sewed fake leaves and orange string lights from dollar tree under the first layer of tulle. Next I sewed vines I ordered from Amazon around the skirt. The shirt is just a green bodysuit from amazon but I did sew orange and brown patches on it. Next I used instamorph moldable plastic to make my stem, fingernails and maggots to put in my rotting spots. I molded and twisted the fingernails to make them have the appearance of tree branches. I then painted them both using a non toxic paint. I took a old pair of brown compact boots and threaded some vines and raffia around them. My last prop I made was my farmers head on a stake. I found a old ghost mask a cowboy hat and a cheap childs wig in goodwill. I painted the mask flesh toned, stuffed a beanie and wrapped the mask around that. I then glued a fake eye in one socket and used a hot glue gun to create the look of the missing eye in the other and stuck a pumpkin carving knife in the missing eye socket. I used a old cowboy hat and the hair off a old wig to compete my farmer. The day of my party I started off by using latex to make the rotting spots and also apply the maggots. I also used the latex and made holes in my arms to stick random pieces of vines in to make it appear they were growing out of me. I then used the latex to form the pumpkin carvings around my face and to attach my stem. Next I used body paint and painted my whole body orange. For my rotting spots I painted the isnide black and brown and used KY Jelly to give it a gooey rotting appearence. Lastly I glued some moss around my horn and added a orange wig with some moss attached.
