Who doesn't remember everyone's favorite childhood game- Candyland? My best friend and I wanted to be our favorite characters from the game, which meant getting creative to come up with the Homemade Queen Frostine and Princess Lolly from Candyland Couple Costumes (since these are not costumes you can find in any store.)

For my costume, Queen Frostine, I found a royal blue gown and bought some white taffeta to stitch on to create the right look. I also purchased a blue wig and the perfect crown, to which I attached a hand-drawn Candyland logo.

The staff was the most complicated part of this costume. I used some cardboard (an old shoebox actually), covered each side with wallpaper (to make sure it was smooth), drew the pattern, and cut it out with an exacto knife. I then painted it, attached some blue gems and a light-up snowflake in the middle, and attached it to a blue spray-painted broom handle with some wire and epoxy.

For Princess Lolly, my friend found a perfect yellow dress at a thrift store and used felt, ribbon, and fabric glue to create the lollipops. We also purchased a children's princess crown, to which we epoxied 5 lollipops and added a Candyland logo.

Add a purple wig, purple tights, and gold flats and she was good to go!

These costumes were so much fun and original and we were surprised at how many people actually recognized us!

I LOVE both costumes. I am going as Queen Frostine this year for halloween and have referenced you pictures SO many times! The staff is totally the hardest part and I'm having trouble fixing it to the pole I have for it. UGH but great costumes!!

We were all going to on a Halloween camping trip and went as a themed family. Gameboards!

My 2 year old daughter was had a Candy Land Costume. Since she's so small I cut a piece a of poster board in half, then trimmed the edges to make it a little smaller for her. Then just started copying the board. I drew all the characters first where they should be so that I could add the game trail in afterwards. I didn't follow the trail exactly but I made sure there were the same colored spaces, and made sure there were spaces for the characters logos, and the black dot spots. After drawing I used paint pens to fill it in. After I finished I used packing tape to tape the poster board to the cardboard leaving a half inch on all sides. Punched 2 holes towards the middle and used twine so it could be easily hung over head.

I took an old sparkly pair of pants and added pastel candy pieces buying gluing them on and felt cupcake stickers. We also found a cupcake hoodie and added some of the felt cupcakes to the hoodie as well. Then used cupcake ribbon for her pigtails.
