Costume type:  Costumes for Girls
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for girls entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 2nd place in the Best Children's Costume nomination!

A word from Lori, the 'Twister Tornado' costume creator:

My daughter Penelope is a Twister Tornado. She is wearing a cloud hat complete with lighting and plane flying through, with clear bead rain falling, Her costume is made of tulle, and flying in the tornado is doll house items, street sigs, cars, trees and other items. At the bottom in a white picket fence with a house. On the other foot is a Storm chaser chasing the tornado. We got this idea from watching a tornado documentry and because my daughter is very intrested in the weather at the moment.

#11 comment by patty October 23, 2015

did you adhere the pillow stuffing to a hat?? How did it become such a perfect headpiece? And how did you make the lightning?? I LOVE this!! Also, how did you make the feet? are they socks w/ fake moss/grass? This is amazing!!

#12 comment by Lori October 23, 2015

Yes I did. I used a felt bowl for the hat and used led battery operated lights feet a big socks with fake mold grass and I got some sand and stuck it to hot glue. Everything is hot glued lol
