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

A word from Jodie, the 'Snowman' costume creator:

I was looking for something different to make myself for Halloween and I've always wanted to go to a party and have people wondering, "WOW, who is in that costume???" Well this was the costume that pulled it off. I made this Snowman Costume over a few days, and it was so much fun! This was made mainly with Chicken Wire & Buffalo Snow, to decorate the snowman I used a snowman kit from Christmas Tree Shops.

Incase you are wondering the eye holes are actually the two center coals of the mouth.

How do you make this costume?!?!??!

#2 comment by Jodie October 1, 2012

The body is made of Chicken wire moulded into the snowman shape and I poked the buffalo snow in the chicken wire holes. The eye holes are made with screen (from the window) with coals glued around it to look like the mouth. I made the hat from felt and stuffed it to make it stand up. The head and middle hole are wired together and the bottom "snowball" has hooks on it that I could hook and unhook to a belt I wore around my waist. The entire face was a build your own snowman kit from Christmas tree shops. All pieces were glued in place except for the nose and pipe were drilled with a tiny hole and wired to the chicken wire frame.

Where did you get buffalo snow?

#4 comment by Jodie October 30, 2012

Michael's or AC Moore, but poly fill is good too and I found a 5lb box at AC Moore for $21.99 and I used a 50% off coupon, was cheaper then the bags of buffalo snow!

Hey how did the chicken wire not scratch your arms on the arm holes?

#7 comment by Jodie October 9, 2014

I padded the arms with duct tape all the way around each hole

How do u see

#9 comment by Jodie October 28, 2014

Through the two center "coals" of the mouth, they are just pieces of screening I hot glued over those two holes of the chicken wire.

could you sit?

#12 comment by Jodie October 12, 2015

No, this was not something I could sit in, but it was easy enough to step out of for bathroom and sitting breaks

Love this! I am a Preschool teacher and will be attempting to re-create this for our Christmas play that is coming up soon. My class is preforming "Frosty the Snowman" and this will be perfect. How did you get the chicken wire to mold into the circle shape without straightening back out? That is the main issue I am having now... Also, did you do anything on the inside to keep the buffalo snow from falling off? Like maybe tape around it or something? Thanks for the inspiration and help!
