This Crayola Crayons Group Costume was much fun, especially for college-aged girls! We partied in Madison, WI for Halloween 2010 and needed something unique that would also stand out so we could find each other and stick together.
First, we each picked our favorite color and got that organized, the more people/colors, the better. We then hit up Michael's craft store for their variety of duct tape. We each got 2 rolls, and also some black to do the logo, and also some party hats and saran wrap.
Before wrapping up, we cut out the crayola logos so that we could have them ready to stick on when we were finished. Then we each wrapped a party hat with our selected color tape. Then we took turns doing the duty of wrapping (make sure to leave PLENTY of preparation time in case you screw up, or just to make it perfect). First, we were saran-wrapped the length of what we'd want our crayons to be. Some girls wore tiny dresses underneath, some wore just undergarments, whatever is most comfortable for you! We then started with the duct tape. Once the rolling got started, it was easy to see where mistakes might be, so they were easily correctable and also preventable for the later costumes.
Finally, we did our make-up, hair, and partied the rest of the night :) hope this helps!
PS...when wrapping, make sure to NOT have your legs close together or closed so that you have room to walk, and use the ladies' room!
Comments for Coolest Crayola Crayons Group Costume 27
Me and eight of my girfriends decided on a Homemade Crayons Costume for Halloween. We each chose the color we wanted to be. I actually made all of the costumes for the girls as well as acquired all of the accessories. I got plain white long tank dresses and dyed them. Then I used felt to design the actual crayon. We each chose our own crayon color name and I wrote it on the side of each. Everything we wore coordinated to our color; wig, makeup, eyelashes, jewelry, stockings, shoes...you name it!
I also made little purses out of 64ct crayola boxes with a peice of colored felt inside and ribbon as the holder. I had to use all of those crayons for something so I made crayon bracelets, gluing the crayons around a piece of felt and attaching it together with Velcro. Even the girls that smoke cigarettes make a cigarette pack out of a crayon box.
Sadly, I did not have time to make a giant crayon box that we could take a picture in, but we did get some great pictures! Every girl totally rocked their color!
The four of us decided we wanted to do a group costume so we thought of making ourselves into crayons. We got the idea of using duct tape for this Crayon Set Group Costume from one of our friends so we made our dresses out of different color duct tapes. We put garbage bags under the ducktape so the tape didn't stick to our skin and set up the tape to form a cute dress that we would be able to dance. The black squiggles on the top and bottom of the dress are also made of duct tape that we cut and carefully placed on ourselves. The writing is out of foam lettering that we bought at Walmart.
At end of the night we simply cut the dress off and threw it away. Probably the cutest costumes we saw all night. Nobody could believe it was duct tape.
