We are submitting our six-pack of Coors Light Costume for the coolest homemade costume contest because we believe it is the best costume we have seen on your website. My friend and I had this Beer Group Costume Idea for Halloween 2009. We can not really remember why we chose to do Coors light other than we were drinking Coors light while we were discussing costumes for Halloween.
We started October 1 and finished it an hour before we left the house on Halloween, working on it everyday in between. We first started with a drawing, went to a fabric store, and then began experimenting. The first few days were frustrating but when we got the first one completed the others came together fairly quickly. We hand painted every portion of the costume, using spray paint and stencils we made and cut out. The painting is what took the most amount of time and we were very particular to detail. We sewed the silver fabric to the brown fabric for the bottles, wrapped paper plates in tin foil for the hats and hand painted the box. The lids had headbands glued to them so they would stay on our heads and we had poster board inside the fabric that had straps attached to it.
The boxes are for each individual bottle, with handles, and beer holders with koozies were included. Over 200 hours between two of us were put into the making of this costume. It was hard work but worth the end result!

A bunch of my girl friends and I were sitting around the night before Halloween trying to figure out a unique costume idea that would top everyone else’s. We came up with the idea of being a six pack of beer.
For the homemade beer can group costume we started by wrapping ourselves in garbage bags.
Next, we used silver duct tape and wrapped it around us until we were completely covered.
Third, we cut the costume up the side, extended it with some more duct tape, and added Velcro so it would be easy to take the costume off.
Fourth, we trimmed the edges with bright blue duct tape.
Last, we taped the front of a Busch Light box to our stomachs, making us the six pack of Busch Light!
To this day, when we go out we still have people ask us, “Hey, weren’t you the Busch Light girls?”, or “why aren’t you wearing your costumes?” Overall, it was a very fun costume to make and I’m not quite sure how we will top it this year!

We made this homemade beerglass group costume (16x) from wire netting and newspapers glued on to it.
First we made a die to put the wire netting around so it would create the shape of a scaled beerglass. Because the shape is conical the wire netting was easy to remove from the die, so we could make the next one. After we took the wire-netting off of the die we cut holes in them for the arms and head.
After we prepared all the wire netting shapes, we started gluing the newspapers on to them. That was a pretty tough job because we first had to do the top and then had to wait for it to dry before we could do the bottom otherwise it fell off.
After the paper fun we sprayed them with some white and yellow paint to create the realistic looking beer...
We had a lot of fun making this homemade beerglass group costume and won the first price at the party we wore them too.
