The base of this homemade Yugi from Yugioh kids Halloween costume idea is a dark blue women’s pant suit from Goodwill. Darts were added to give the coat a tighter fit, and the sleeves and legs were trimmed to fit. Material from the pant legs was used with some Foamie and sewn to make the collar. The millennium puzzle necklace was made by downloading an image and gluing it to more foamie sheets.

The wig which is what really sets this costume apart as being Yugi was created from two wigs. The base wig is a punk rocker chick (red) and the second was a half purple, half yellow wig. I cut sections of the long yellow hair and sewed it to the front of the red wig. To get that iconic Yugi “crimp” in front I used Knox gelatin. I took the hair and bent it back and forth through layers of business cards (any heavy cardstock would do) and plastic baggies. The plastic baggies prevented the hair from sticking to the cards. I let it dry overnight. The initial spikes in the red wig were done with hairspray but then I added some Knox to them as well for durability.

This homemade Voltron: Defender of the Universe Halloween costume was truly a labour of love. Love for Halloween & love for the baddest Defender of the Universe… VOLTRON! This design was primarily constructed out of cardboard (lots of it!) taking trips to local grocery stores and asking them for cardboard that was going straight to the dump. Not this time! This was a 3 week project that consisted of a few things.

- Cardboard
- High Temperature Glue Gun
- Acrylic Paint & Gloss coat
- Tamiya Spray paint
- Modeling tape

last but not least… A lot of REDBULL!!!

I was pretty happy the way it turned out and would likely do future mods but for now, the main thing was to get him assembled. It takes 1 person to help me put on the suit. The sequence to put him together is first the legs, the feet, the body, the arms and lastly the mask accompanied by the Black Lion's head.

All in all, it was an amazing Halloween experience and totally worth the sore body walking around the suit for 4hrs.

Coolest Veggie Tales Group Costume 2

Homemade Veggie Tales Family Costumes - Larryboy, Bob and Pea

Homemade Veggie Tales Family Costumes - Larryboy, Bob and Pea

My Son is a HUGE fan of Larryboy and decided that the whole family needed to dress up for Halloween as Veggie tale characters. Daddy and son are Larryboy, Mommy is Bob and Baby Girl is a French Pea.

They were all made with Felt and craft glue. I did have to sew up the backs of both Larryboy costumes, and shoulders of Bob. I used an outfit of our daughter's to make a very loose pattern and just sewed the two halves together. I then looked at photos of the characters and cut out the eyes, etc. to make the characters look realistic. They were super easy and took just an evening to make all the costumes.

Everyone loved that we all dressed up as the characters, even with Larryboy's "plunger" ears, which are just red felt rolled up and sewed at the smallest end ,then sewed in to make a "helmet".

The cost for all costumes was less than $20.
