Coolest Kandy Korn Costume

Miss Kandy and Mr. Korn Costume

The school that my children attend asks that parents try to have their children wear costumes that keep with a fall theme, as the parties are now called "Harvest Parties", not "Halloween Parties" anymore. I always try to come up with some cute things for them to be and I really love Candy Corn, so that is what I turned them into. To make it a little funnier, I named them "Miss Kandy" and "Mr. Korn" and their school thought they were hysterical.

All I used was different color felt to make the body of the costumes and their names, put a bow on my daughter's head and a bow tie on my son. Because I accidentally cut the hole for her face too large, I hot glued a head band inside, so it would stay on her head.

I could not find any yellow shirts that were the exact same color as the felt so I just had them wear white shirts and comfortable pants.

Coolest York Peppermint Pattie Costume

My youngest son came up with this idea last year right after Halloween. This Homemade York Peppermint Pattie Costume was made using silver and blue vinyl fabric, and cording. I used the wrapper as my example and went from there.

I sewed the blue vinyl on the silver as it didn't stick using fabric glue. I then used fabric glue to glue on the cording for the letters and trim. I must say I went through 3 different types of glue...fabric, hot glue, and then gorilla glue and nothing seemed to keep the cording attached. My suggestion would be to sew it on the first time before you attach the outfit together!

After that I just used a Sharpie blue marker to write on the front and back. We sprayed his hair silver to match his outfit.

The best part was hearing everybody tell him they were going to eat him because that was their favorite candy. He loved every minute of wearing this costume!

This is such a simple costume to make but it really is something either a boy or girl would love to wear. Who doesn't like Peppermint Patties? This costume has my vote.

Coolest Toblerone Costume

Coolest Toblerone Costume

Thomas decided that he wanted to be a Toblerone candy bar so we created this costume from cardboard, painted it yellow and added the box design based on a real Toblerone bar. The bar didn't last long but the costume held up like a champ.

We added tinfoil for detail and a face hole so he could see. It was the hit of the costume parade at his school. His little brother Jamie created his own box monster too.

How it was made:

Gathered cardboard boxes - Created the basic triangular shape - big enough so that he could get in and still walk around.

Spray painted the entire box Yellow.

Got a Toblerone from the store to use as a guide for the design.

Drew letters and logo on with pencil.

Painted letters and logo.

Added nutrition facts on the back side.

Ate the Toblerone bar to celebrate.

Coolest Pez Costume

Pez Costume

This Pez costume is very easy to make, and everybody loved it. All I did was cut arm holes out of a long box (box that Styrofoam cups came in from work). Then I taped blue poster board on the outside of it and cut out stencils of the PEZ letters.

I was thinking about making a head, but the costume was difficult to move around in, (especially at a crowded party.) I also wore suspenders and connected the ends to the box to hold it up. It was a great costume and everyone loved it
