Came up with this Condom Wrapper Costume out of cardboard from a tv box. I couldn’t find cheap hula hoops to make the ‘ridge’ part of the condom, so bought some cheap flexible plastic piping and taped it to the cardboard. Next, I glued a few rolls of silver cellophane, used to wrap gifts, and spray painted it with pretty purple. The Durex label and words were painted with t-shirt paint.
I didn’t have to tape the sides together, but I did tape/glue the top of the box before spray painting and left the bottom open to get into it. It was difficult to get into and out of, and it’s best of you’re a thin person. After I cut the holes out, I just wrapped the edges with this foil tape stuff you can find in stores near duct tape, which actually kept the cellophane in place before I spray painted it all.
No pictures shown, but the back of the condom wrapper has the same plastic piping taped to the box and covered with silver cellophane. I painted words on the back similar to what would be on the back of an actual condom wrapper using black t-shirt paint.
I have always been a huge fan of blistex (friends would say addicted). I probably use a tube a week! So I figured it was only appropriate to celebrate the wonderfulness of blistex. The Homemade Blistex Costume with Lips Costume was SUPER easy and only cost about $10. I bought white, red, and blue felt. I used the white to form a simple a-line type dress and attached the red stripe to the bottom. Then I found an image of the blistex logo and blew it up to the size I needed. I cut the letters out of blue and red felt and hand stitched them on to the costume. I did this for both sides. I simply used a paper chefs hat for the "cap" of the tube.
For my friend I simply cut out lip shapes from the red felt and sewed it together like a pillow and stuffed it. I think the costume turned out wonderful and if anything is extremely creative! I hope you enjoy!
This Homemade Girl in a Tub Costume is simple and affordable!
I took an old Rubbermaid bin and spraypainted it with a high-gloss white paint. I then cut out the bottom of the bin so I could fit inside! I staple-gunned two straps made of nude-colored panty-hose inside the bin, so that the bin would be at chest level. I hot-glued shampoo and conditioner bottles, a bath puff, a towel and razor, and even a faucet, along the rim of the bin! To make the faucet I covered paper-towel rolls in aluminum foil.
I bought some nude-colored shorts and a nude-colored tank-top. I then staple-gunned white and blue balloons to the inside of the bin to look like bubbles, and wore a pair of flip-flops to complete the 'bathing beauty' look! It was a huge hit and cost me next to nothing! A little tricky to walk around in all night but well worth it!
