Cool Homemade Couple Costume Idea: Colonel Sanders (KFC) and a Chicken
I kept seeing the Colonel with a bucket, but I thought a chicken would be more fun. The chicken costume is super simple to make~just time consuming. First, buy white feathers boas in bulk ( you will need A LOT!) I had a white long-sleeve dress already on hand. You just take your dress (or long shirt), a glue gun and start wrapping the boas around the dress~gluing as you go until the entire dress is covered. In some areas I doubled the boas. I then took an old hat and glued boas to it. My greatest find was a pair of yellow rubber gloves I found at the Dollar Store. I glued them to an old pair of flip flops and used the white feathers to look like chicken feet. The last thing was a pair of yellow tights I found on clearance at Target.
The Colonel’s costume was also pretty easy to make. First, I went to KFC and asked for 2 buckets. One to cut out the lettering for the apron and one to carry our beverages. Next, I took an old red apron and glued the cut-outs from the bucket. I cut strips of white duck tape for the apron.He already had tan pants and a white shirt. You can also wear a white shirt, black apron and black thin bow tie. I just took black ribbon to make a tie. The glasses were a pair my husband wore in the early 90’s. I did buy the wig and goatee. Have fun!
