Homemade Mr. Clean Costume

Homemade Mr. Clean Costume

This homemade Mr. Clean costume was probably the easiest costume I've ever done.

I bought some cheap, white painter's pants at Walmart, and purchased a white belt. I also wore some all-white shoes and a new white t-shirt. I highly recommend a brand new white t-shirt. After all, he is Mr. Clean.

I had been shaving my head for a few months, so that was an easy aspect to complete. I assume most people who would attempt this would already have that hair-style anyway.

For the eyebrows, I bought some white face paint. I put on about 5 layers for each eyebrow. The first 2 or 3 layers don't cover up much, but then again, I'm a little thick in the eyebrow department (your results may vary). After each layer application, wait a few minutes for the paint to dry so you're not smudging the same paint. Be very delicate so as not to smudge previous layers. By the third time I applied the eyebrow makeup start-to-finish, I was an expert.

The earring was probably the hardest part, as I do not have my ears pierced. I could not find a gold clip-on earring in the right size. I eventually purchased some regular gold earrings, about 3/4" in diameter. I used some sponge material to create a spacer between the back of my earlobe and one of the ends of the earring. By cutting the sponge at the right size, enough pressure could be created to hold the earring in place for long periods of time, even with swift movement, with virtually no pain. And no hole in my ear!

A simple, cost-effective costume with good results. Most people recognized it almost instantly.

Homemade Mud Costume from Swiffer Wet Jet Commercial inspired by commercial.

What’s needed:
Dress, shoes, (purse, bangles, and glasses optional)
Spray paint
Great Stuff insulating foam (gloves for protection recommended)

This costume idea came to me after watching a Swiffer commercial. I used an old dress that I’ve had sitting in my closet since high school and a purse that I’ve had since middle school. The shoes were purchased at the Salvation Army. I also had a pair of 3-D glasses and bangles that I used. The most expensive part was the Great Stuff insulating foam that I used to cover all the fabric. About 6 bottles and a day later everything was ‘foamed’. However, I didn’t realize how stiff it would make the dress. I could not fit into the dress at first and had to cut into the foam along the back of the dress so that the fabric could stretch. I then spray painted everything brown and my mud costume was ready!

I’d recommend stretching the fabric before spraying on the insulating foam. I placed a box inside my dress to help stretch it out some. I had two friends (dirt and dust) that also dressed up with me. We were a huge hit at our Veterinary School Halloween Party!

Coolest Homemade Etrade Baby Costume

Homemade Etrade Baby Costume

Homemade Etrade Baby Costume

We love the E*Trade baby commercials and we decided to dress our 11 month old son in a Homemade Etrade Baby Costume. At first when we thought of the idea I was a little worried not enough people would understand. But I was definitely wrong, it was a big hit and everyone thought our son looked like the E*Trade baby.

He loved his first Halloween and had a great time banging on the keys to his Daddy's old laptop. People we didn't even know were taking pictures of him. Needless to say everyone loved it. I'm glad we decided to do a homemade original costume instead of buying one that a bunch of other kids are wearing and isn't going to stick out in the mix of children running around. Everyone laughed and said it was the best and most creative costume they've seen. It was a great night for Joey, me, and my fiancee. It was definitely a perfect first Halloween for our son and family with a perfect Halloween costume.

I'd always wanted to be a Samurai for Halloween, however real Samurai suits are super expensive and the cheap ones are well... cheap. I decided to go the crazy-person route and make my own Rubbermaid Samurai Costume! Over the course of 2 months and using almost nothing but Rubbermaid trashcans and a hard-hat, this is what I ended up with.

The main torso armor is made from 2 full size trashcans, the shoulders and helmet are made from thier lids. The "skirts" are made from several wastebaskets, and the whole thing is lashed together with thin rope. I hand carved the dragon insignia on the helmet and I made the mask out of a couple of off-the-shelf masks. Oh... the sword is real and I carried it all night.

Coolest Homemade Slim Jim Costume

Homemade Slim Jim Costume

I came up with this Homemade Slim Jim Costume idea months before Halloween. I wanted to be something different. It was such a simple costume I bought a the yellow overalls from a home improvement store. I could not find a red turtle neck in the men's department so yes I am wearing a women's turtle neck.

Then to make the head piece I took a old kings crown I had from a previous costume and hot glued pipe insulation I got at a home improvement store. Snap into a Slim Jim...eat me!
