I have an obsession with cupcakes-- I simply think that they are beautiful-- and all I really wanted was to be one for Halloween. This is how I created the homemade cupcake costume:

Skirt/Wrapper: This was the hardest part of the costume, and it really wasn't that hard. I used my prom dress from 10 years prior (when tulle with a corset top was all the rage, circa 1999). I hung the dress inside out and hot glued and safety pinned up all the layers of tulle. Then I turned it back out and spray painted the skirt a Caribbean Blue-- once that was dry, I cut off the corset top, leaving only the skirt.

Top/Frosting: An old VS halter top a friend had given me.

Gloves: I used little girl tights, cut and glued to make the gloves.

Cupcake Hat: Ordered from Etsy.

Cupcake on Skirt: I made this to originally be a necklace, then glued it to the skirt at the last minute. Made from ribbons, sequins, a foam base and lots of hot glue.

Legs: I wore matching blue tights (to the skirt) and then spray painted an old pair of Mary Janes the same color blue.

I wore cupcake earrings and a matching ring.

My husband went as a baker. I bought his coat and hat at a Food Service Store, and added cupcake buttons to the front of his coat.

My 7 year old daughter had a hard time picking a costume this year. She is too big for a kids store bought costume, and too young to wear the "teen" costumes... She told me she wanted to be a cupcake so here is what I did...

First, I bought thick silver fabric for the "cupcake liner". I used a sewing machine to stitch the ends to make a "skirt" and then I bought about 10 yards of pink tulle for the frosting. I hand sewed the tulle to the silver skirt and then stitched the tulle - making layer upon layer until I got the puffy look I wanted. I used sparkly pipe cleaners for the sprinkles and hot glued them to the tulle.

I also added two pink straps so the homemade pink cupcake with sprinkles costume could sit on her shoulders. She wore a pink leotard with silver tights underneath. She begged for the hot pink wig, I added blush to her cheeks and sparkle lip gloss and then spray glittered her all over... Cutest costume in the class I think!

Oh and I made the costume the night before her class party... I think it took 3 hours total...

Homemade Cupcake Halloween Costume Idea

I had a Homemade Cupcake Halloween Costume Idea for my daughter. I used a lamp shade from Thrift store($2.00), turned it upside down painted it silver, bought a old bed sheet from Thrift store ($1.00), bought some pillow fluff, 2 bags about ($6.00)and some pompom's, and lots of hot glue! I cut the sheet in strips about 9" wide and sewed them in tubes and stuffed them, and coiled them around the lamp shade glueing them to each other, added pom poms, and attached shoulder straps inside.

For the candle on top I used a headband, a wider one, made a small tube, glued that to the headband, made a candle from paper towel roll.

Ttotal cost about $10.00

For this homemade cupcake costume, flip a plastic laundry basket upside down, cut bottom out for head, and two holes for arms. Get twin-sized quilt batting at craft store for the 'icing', just cut it into 3 strips, twist and ice one strip at a time.

We painted an old lamp shade for the wrapper and it is held up by 2 suspenders. We used a shaped hole-puncher to make confetti for the sprinkles. Just spray with adhesive, and sprinkle all over. Hat is a red felt 'cowboy' from the $1 store, remove brim, add a wrap of cotton and a candle. Yummy!!!
