We won our neighborhood Halloween contest wearing these. This took two days to sew, but I am a fast seamstress. I wanted it to look authentic, so I kept looking at the originals. I also downloaded the theme of the Oompa Loompa song and played it when I entered the party. Everyone at the party thought, wow, what a great costume. You are so creative.
