Every child's dream, endless Junk Food! My husband and 10 year old had the time of their lives creating this homemade junk food costume!

They made his legs into a Cheeto and a can of Coke. His arms were a lollipop and his favorite Laffy Taffy. A slice of blueberry pie and a chocolate donut made up his shoulders. "Junk Food's" body was made into a slice of pizza and a half eaten Dreamsicle with all his favorite candies in between.

We kept telling our son, "You are what you eat." It finally came true!

While trick or treating it backfired when someone said, "Looks like you have enough candy on you!"

Here is what you need to create your own walking junk food frenzy:

1. 1 Inch Pillow Foam
2. Multicolor Foam Sheets
3. Upholstery Thread & Needle
4. Hot Glue & Glue Gun
5. Paint Pens
6. Markers
7. Knowledge & Fondness for Candy
8. Candy Wraps or Access to Images of them via the Internet
9. Fiber Fill for Ice Cream Hat
10. Various Colors of Material to Make Wappers, Icecream Hat, etc.
11. Imagination

For this homemade junk food costume first create a base around your body with the 1 inch foam. We made ours to form like a sandwich board & stitched it on the sides with the upholstery thread. Then have fun creating "mock" candies, etc. to fill it with. Hot glue and sew where items fit best and you're ready to hit the streets sporting enough junk food to make any kid drool.

Coolest Homemade Candy Costume

Homemade Candy Costume

Here is my little girl with her homemade candy costume. Made with tape and cellophane.

I used a big ball, the kind you sit on, and I covered it with saran wrap to protect it. Then, I put some tape more than you can imagine. When it was thick, I cut it and I took off the ball.
Covered it with pink cellophane and made holes for the arms.

This homemade candy costume was light, comfortable and very original. Everybody was saying how they want to eat her! hahaha

Great, it is spectacular and impressive. Looks like a lot of work! I may consider this idea for myself!

I am an adult, and I made the costume for myself. I used about 200 feet of cellophane and about three rolls of packing tape. It altogether cost about $15 and it turned out awesome! I did purple... I'm hoping to win the Halloween costume contest!

Cool!
