It's my nine month old son's first Halloween, so I just had to make his first costume. He has such a big personality and the brightest eyes I've ever known so I wanted to create something that would showcase his face. I searched the internet and came across this homemade baby chicken costume on...wait for it...YOUR WEBSITE! I read different blogs about how to make a costume like this, but so many required sewing, which I do not do. Anyhow, I found a picture of one I really liked on the Martha Stewart website and decided to tweak it a bit. HOT GLUE GUN all the way baby!!!! It's truly my new best friend.
All I did was take two long sleeved onesies (two sizes bigger), put one inside the other and stuffed it with batting, then glued them together. I bought two heavy weight white feathered boas per Martha and safety pinned them around the onesie. To insure the safety pins wouldn't open I hot glued gunned the tips where they close. I added single yellow feathers here and there, used rit to dye white leggings yellow and made the feet out of kitchen gloves, again per Martha.
The hat was totally my creation. All I did was buy $1.95 white swimmers cap, cut it like a pilot's hat, add feathers, felt, and viola... a chicken's cap. This is my proudest part of the costume because the majority of people suggested buying pilot's caps online.
I was determined to make as much as possible as cheaply as possible. I hope you enjoy the pics :-)

This Homemade Cannibal Chicken Costume is quite simply a chicken who likes to eat chicken. A cannibal chicken! The Lector mask with the rubber chicken nose attached to it, KFC bucket,(for the Halloween candy), and the chicken leg in hand give it that extra special touch.
To make this costume, you need a solid color sweatshirt preferably in the same color as your feathered boas. Attach feathered boas with needle and thread. Go to the store and pick up a rubber chicken nose, Hannibal Lector mask, and striped tights.
Glue the rubber chicken nose to the mask, grab a KFC bucket, keep one chicken leg to carry around and get ready for the laughs as they figure out your costume! My other son wore this costume last year to a trick or treat event in downtown Pensacola, he only got to trick or treat three stores because so many people stopped him to ask for his picture.
I think you can tell Halloween is my favorite time of the year, it is so fun to conjure up unique costumes each year. Happy Halloween to you!
This Homemade Chicken Halloween Costume is my favorite costume yet! Wait, she is only two so that doesn't give me much of a choice!
This homemade Chicken costume was simple but had everyone talking. I purchased a white cover up, three 6' white feather boas, red foam, orange leggings, orange felt and two packages of large white feathers for the tail.
The boas were hand stitched to the cover up. The red foam was cut and stitched to the head. The feet were made of the orange felt.I took the two packages of white feathers and fanned them out. Then, with hot glue, I adhered them together and hand-stitched them in between a row of feathers. I topped the costume off by pulling her in a wagon of hay representing a nest with artificial eggs in it.
Everyone stopped and asked about it!! I am a busy mom of three and needed a costume that was quick and easy to make.
