After having our first daughter we definitely wanted to "be" something that included the whole family. I had seen some leopard printed fabric at the store and was wondering what I could make. I had originally wanted to be the Flintstones but decided to be a CAVE FAMILY instead.
I bought some leopard print fabric at the store. I bought a few yards and folded it in half so I only had to sew one seam down the side. I cut out the neck of my husband's all jagged in a U-Like shape and for mine and my daughter's. I made it a one strapped dress by cutting diagonally across. I also made jagged cuts at the bottom.
My husband wore flesh colored flipflops and I bought some "bone" accents at the party store. I cut an extra piece of matching material to make a headband for my daughter and tied the bones into it. I bought a bone necklace, bracelet and anklet for me. VOILA!! We won our neighborhood costume contest for best family dress!
I started this Cave Woman costume by buying a yrd and a half of material from Wal-Mart. I traced and cut out the pattern and sewed the sides to fit my shape, cut the hem jagged, and tied the shoulder strap.
For my hair - I washed and blow dried it and then added hair grease and teased it until I got the desired look... it took about twenty mins.
The bones came from a store deli, after I ate the chicken I stuck the bones in the microwave to dry them out and then pierced a hole in the tips and added them to a string for a necklace and bracelet (I even tied some in my hair).
For the dirty look I took brownish blk mascara and swiped it on arms, legs, face and teeth... lol, didn't taste too bad... and then just blend with fingers.
The tool was made from a thick stick, shape one end and tie a rock to the other end using old straps from a black t-shirt.
I have a hard time finding costumes to fit me the way I would like for them too, so I decided to make it. My husband had a caveman/barbarian outfit and we wanted to match so I made a Cavewoman Costume. I purchased the material and got to work.
I cut the pattern, did minimal sewing, and pieces everything together. Made the costume the best I could with all the ideas I could think of. I had a complete outfit with all the accessories. I didn't have to worry about it not fitting right or about it being worn by someone else.
I felt great about the costume and people really loved it. They kept asking me where I purchased it from. I didn't win the costume contest, but I really felt great about the way it turned out. I am hoping this year to make another costume that will stand out just as well. It was truly a Cavewoman kinda night! LOL!
I decided to dress myself as a cavewoman this year for Halloween. I wanted a way to be original and didn't want to dress in that pretty-girly costume like any girl.
The costume is pretty easy to do. The only things you need is a brown blanket, a piece of fabric with animal print on it, a pair of hairy brown slippers and finally some dog's bone or chicken bones, or any bones that you ate yesterday for supper!
Cut the blanket in 2 pieces, one for the skirt and one for the vest. You take the fabric with animal print to put under your vest. You can make a necklace with your bones. And just assemble all the pieces on you!
I also bought a kind of plastic dentures in a drugstore to complete my outfit. You know that a costume is a total success when people ask you where you bought it. I am very proud of my costume!

We had about 2 hours to make a costume so my friends and I went to a fabric store and bought 1 yard of fabric each. Three costumes we actually hand sewed, but the rest are just draped around and safety pinned. The leopard print only cost $3.50 for a yard and the most expensive was the white fabric at about $15.
These Homemade Cavegirl Group Halloween Costumes were super easy to make and they actually ended up looking cute!
