Last year I decided to make my own costume instead of buy one. I came up with the idea of dressing up as a Cereal Killer by searching different creative costume ideas online. The Cereal Killer costume idea came up a few times online, however, not exactly the way I made it. I had so much fun making and wearing the outfit, and other people seemed to enjoy it too.
The Cereal Killer costume was pretty simple to make. First, I bought a white dress for my milk base, mini cereal boxes, white plastic knifes, fake blood, and white make-up paint.
Second, I stuck and glued the white plastic knifes through the mini cereal boxes and smeared fake blood all over both items.
Third, I glued on the mini cereal boxes with knifes intact on the white dress, and smeared blood sporadically on the dress.
Finally, I painted on a milk mustache using the white make-up paint, and smeared fake gel blood on my lips and chin. Voila! Cereal Killer (D.I.Y.) was created.
The total cost of costume was around $30.00 to $35.00.
Tip 1: Make sure you use hot glue to glue on the cereal boxes to clothing item, and if the knifes don't stay put, just add some clear tape around them.
Tip 2: If you want to be a Sexy Cereal Killer, just add black or red stockings and wear some black, red, or white stilettos.
Tip 3: If you're going to join a costume contest somewhere, you might want to carry around a plastic milk carton with red glitter or paint inside, to give your costume some more Ooomph. Also, you can try painting the phrase "Got Milk?" using fake blood or red paint on the back of your white clothing item.
My 9 year old son, Stevie, went as a ‘cereal’ killer this year. We stabbed small cereal boxes with a knife and then put fake blood on them and waited for it to dry. We used a larger cereal box and did the same, but then left a larger fake knife sticking out of the box which he carried.
The smaller boxes, with fake plastic knives which were spray painted to look real, were affixed to his clothes using double sided tape. He wore a black hat and black clothes and we made his face appear dirty like he had been crawling on the ground or through shrubbery to get to his next ‘victim’. He walked around telling everyone to hand over their cereal.
He was a big hit! The costume was very easy to create and very economical as he and his sisters ate the cereal, so there was not wasted money there. He loved it!
Cereal Killer is a pun on words so the teachers loved it. He won 1st prize for most original.
All I did was get a black tee shirt and black sweats and hot glue small cereal boxes on the shirt and pants. All on the front of both. I also took plastic spoons and glued them on the cereal boxes with fake blood. I wrote it red fabric paint on the front of the shirt Cereal Killer with blood dripping down. On the back of the shirt I wrote in red fabric paint
