This homemade costume for couples entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Jasmine, the 'Spaceballs Barf and Dot Matrix' costume creator:

Sister in laws doing Halloween right!
Yanetsi and Jasmine

For the Barf costume most of the items can be purchased from Amazon. The jumpsuit, Barf name tag, Barf wig, and tail. pair it together with a pair of converse sneakers and some face paint and you are good to go.

The construction was only to hot glue the name tag, cut a small hole in the butt area, and hot glue the tail from the inside.

For the dot dot matrix costume I had some left over craft foam. We cut pieces of foam and hot glued them together to form the shape of the chest and skirt, and neckpiece. We built the costume from the front to the back. The back closes with some Velcro. Gold leotard, gold wig, and gold facepaint complete the look and can be found on Amazon or a party store. The shoes were constructed from gold ice skating shoe covers that we superglued over a pair of old platform wedges.

We wore our costumes to a Halloween event at the Miami Children's Museum. For other guests who got who we were they were laughing and taking pictures with us.

Did the glue hold up with the craft foam?

#4 comment by Jasmine October 5, 2018

The hot glue held up but we also used strong duct tape in the inside of the skirt just to reinforce the edges

It's just red construction paper glued on black poster board
