Homemade Rosie the Riveter Costume

Every year at work we have a Halloween costume contest. This year, I was working with a limited budget, and I wanted to make sure that no one else would have the same costume as me. I stumbled across Rosie the Riveter idea accidentally - while browsing a poster website. It was very easy to execute, and the best part is that this Homemade Rosie the Riveter Costume cost me less than $10 to make!

I purchased blue, yellow, and white poster boards at Wal-Mart, as well as the fabric for the head band. With some practice, I was able to duplicate the yellow and blue background on the poster board, the orientation and letters must have been the hardest part.

The headband was easy to assemble - I folded a piece of fabric diagonally and secured it with safety pins.

I already had a blue shirt in my closet to finish the costume (don't forget to roll the sleeves up!), and, as the final touch, I carried a wrench in my back pocket.

This Homemade Boo Berry Costume is a super easy costume to make. Paper mache a complete helmet, paint it white. Then cut out eyes and nose. Next, buy a white fleece blanket and hot glue it to the helmet. Cut the eyes out and paint the fleece with a little blue spray paint. Find and old hat, paint it yellow with a red band. Cut 2 "o" with the holes in the middle and then one full circle in blue and half it up, those are the eyes. Put it on and you have BooBerry!

Homemade Droid Android Costume

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Android devices and I hate Apple products. So I have decided since everyone will be zombie Steve Jobs this year someone is going to have to destroy that zombie and who more appropriate that Andy the Android!

I made a Droid Android Costume, put it on and am pretty happy with the results, kinda nerdy but whatever.
