Cool Homemade Marge Simpson Costume
The wig was made of poster board and cotton balls then painted blue. I covered my body in yellow body/face paint. I bought the necklace and shoes on clearance. I quickly made the dress out of fleece. The eye mask was the most important part and the most challenging (even though this Marge Simpson costume was a breeze to put together).
We bought Styrofoam balls and hollowed them out, cut eye holes, hot glued black pipe cleaners for eyelashes, then glued them to a piece of thin fabric. From there we cut the fabric to have a 2 – 3 inch overhang around the Styrofoam.
I cut out the fabric from the center of the eyes (so I could see). Then, we layered several layers of liquid latex over the fabric and Styrofoam. Once it had time to dry I pained the eyes white and used the body paint to color the rest of the mask yellow.
On the night of the party I used more liquid latex to adhere the mask to my face. This costume was very easy and cheap to make AND it got me the best costume award at the party this year!
