Well wanting to be something original, and not believing in store bought costumes, my friend and I were thinking of possible costumes that would make people laugh. After some thinking and a few beers our creative juices began flowing and then... BAM, the idea struck. Duh, let's be beers.
Being from Boston, and loving beer, what a better way to express both loves than by being Sam Adams Variety Pack. We began our beer costume with creating our specialized labels and having the commonality of Mr. Sam Adams on our label. I was Cranberry Lambic Sam Adams, and my partner in crime was the Winter Lager Sam Adams.
We both came with bottle caps and were beaded with "Special Brew". The costumes were sewn and hot glued with our accessories which appromixately took 10 hours of straight working. (Yes, last minute Halloween costume making, we happen to work best under pressure). When asked what happened to the other 4 beers, we just explained that we drank them before our arrival, which to everyone that knows us was no surprise at all.
Me and 5 of my close friends wanted to be a 6-pack of beer cans for Halloween, but we couldn't agree on which beer to be, so we ended up deciding to be a "variety 6-pack". We were Coors Light, Budweiser, Guinness, Fosters, Bud Light Lime, and Killian's Irish Red.
We sewed tube top dresses out of a T-shirt material fabric and decorated the front with fabric paint. On the back we wrote "enjoy responsibly". We wore necklaces with pop-tabs and bought matching cans to drink that night. The whole process took about 3 hours per dress, but since we all did our own it wasn't bad. The total cost of each dress was only $25!
Our Homemade Variety Six-Pack Costume was absolutely a hit! It was comfortable to wear, and really cute for a group of 21 year old girls! A few of us even wore them individually to different parties and they still worked out great!
This year for Halloween I decided to dress my little chihuahua, Rosie, as a St Pauli Beer Girl. The whole costume was homemade. The dress was designed by me and sewn by a friend. I found German ribbon to add to the dress to make it look more authentic.
The wig was made from yarn. The little beer steins were taken from Mardi Gras beads and little St Pauli Girl labels were added.
All in all, I think it came out better than expected and is truly original for a dog costume.

I saw the Corona 6 pack and decided to do it with Budlight. This DIY BudLight 6-pack group Halloween costume idea was easy and fun to make. I got 6-6xs long black t-shirts, 6 foil pans, 6 poster boards, a black twin size bed sheet and gallon of true blue and a quart of white paint and 2 large cardboards. It took me about 2 full days to make it. We entered the Best Group contest and won.
Everyone loved our DIY BudLight 6-pack group Halloween costume idea.

This costume has 648 beer caps on it. It includes the hat, earrings, a necklace, an anklet, a purse, a bracelet and of course the shoes shirt and shorts. It took me one month to save all the caps and a lot of parties. I used mostly fabric glue and a hot glue gun to put it together and it is very hard to dance in!
