Homemade Willy Wonka and Oompa Loompa Costumes

My daughter and I did couple costumes for the first 7 years of her life. Dalmatian and Cruella DeVille, Madeline and Miss Clavele, Snow White and the Witch… whatever she was into at the time. Then she wanted to do her own thing, so this Halloween was very special to me that she participated in our family costume.

Willy Wonka wore his own tan pants and white button up shirt. I rented the jacket and made the bow tie from some scrap material I had. The wig was from my daughter’s old dress up box. I couldn’t find a brown hat anywhere so I bought a white one and spray painted it.

My oldest daughter and I were Oompa Loompas. My Mom sewed the white pants and suspenders out of felt. I bought us both brown turtle neck shirts and brown socks and used white electrical tape to make the stripes. We both had to use curlers in our hair to give it the flip, think it would have looked better with shorter hair, then spray painted it green.

My middle daughter was a Wonka Chocolate Bar. My Mom sewed the brown base out of felt. Then I blew up the letters from a candy bar on a copier until I could get the right size. Traced them, cut them out of cardstock and glued to a piece of gold poster board. On the back was the Golden Ticket… made from gold poster board and black cardstock for the letters. I did a search on eBay for the Golden Ticket to duplicate.

And you can’t see my youngest daughter, in my belly at the time, but I had a real Wonka Bar wrapper attached to my belly.

Homemade Ooompa Loompa DIY Halloween Costume

Last year everyone at my office came up with amazing homemade costumes. Kate (from Kate plus 8), Richard Simmons, and even a sumo wrestler, so this year I knew I had to bring it. I decided to make an Ooompa Loompa DIY Halloween Costume.

I went to the local second hand store and purchased a pair of Nike White athletic pants(2.00) , a brown turtle neck shirt (3.50), brown socks (1.00), two of the biggest black buttons I could find (2.00) and a green clown wig (4.00). I also bought brown and white yarn (5.00) from Wal-mart in order to make the pom-poms on the shoes.

When I got home I painted stripes on the neck and cuffs of the shirt and stripes down the socks. I put the socks over some canned veggies because once the paint dries it is will not stretch any more. Then I sewed some ribbon to make the suspenders. I purchased some cheap dollar store foundation and a face painting kit (2.00 @ dollar store) to do the makeup.

Result, a fantastic costume that everyone laughed at all day.

While searching for some other ideas I ended up in this website with an Oompa Loompa picture, and I started looking through all the pictures. I ended up with these Homemade Oompa Loompa Couple Costume Ideas for this 2010 Halloween.

It was a success. The bad thing is that I could only find one of my friend's that wanted to dress up as an Oompa Loompa. I wanted to have more but oh well.

We decided to do a family theme for Halloween. My daughter's favorite movie right now is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory so what better theme than that!!!!

My husband was Willy Wonka, costume made with many thrift shot items, and my daughter and myself were his factory helpers, the Oompa Loompa's.
