My 8 year old daughter loves American Girl Dolls. And it just so happens that she looks just like Kit Kittredge. So this year for Halloween she asked to be Kit in the very Famous American Girl doll box. She wanted to look just like the doll fresh from the store and exactly like the box she arrives in.
We started this Doll in the Box Halloween costume by purchasing a box from U-Haul. We painted it AG red and then cut out the large opening on the box for the doll face hole. We stenciled the AG stars all over the box next with paint. We had saved all of our old AG paper products from previous purchases and we used them to cut and past all over the box so that it would just like the Font of the American Girl Company. So the outside of our box was complete and ready to go.
My daughter wore the exact same dress as her AG doll Kit. They had the matching "take home," dresses just like the one Kit arrives in from the store. We covered the inside of the box with TONS of pictures of Kit. We used pictures from the AG mailing catalog.
We glued the book cover to the inside of the box so that it would appear to be included in the box set, just like the real deal AG Kit doll box set.
We had the most fun making this costume. All of the little girls at her school had a fit over this costume. She was the hit of the festival.

Homemade Barbie in a Box Halloween Costume
When I was little my mother got me a Barbie doll that looked just liked me. One day while going through a box of childhood toys I found the doll. Shortly after finding her, I decided to be Homemade Barbie in a Box Halloween Costume.
I was able to get a box that was big enough for me to fit in and decided to make myself a real life Barbie in a box. I designed and worked on the box for a little over a month. All the writing was done freehand. I painted a self portrait of myself as a Barbie on the back of the box. I attached straps to the back of the inside of the box. I also attached handles to each side of the front of the box. I used these handles successfully to get around for the entire night.
I love designing costumes and I believe that this costume is one of my successes.

Homemade Lifesize Barbie in a Box Costume
Well, as a child my favorite thing to play with was my Barbie doll collection. Now all grown up, this Lifesize Barbie in a Box costume was a fun and nostalgic blast from the past!
First, I bought a wardrobe box, taped it all up and carved out the front section to look like a doll box. Next, I spray-painted the entire outside bright pink and hand-painted the Barbie and Mattel logos. On the inside I spray-painted it a light pink and carved grips on each side to make handles for picking the box up while walking. Last, I went shopping and bought a simple dress with a lot of pink accessories. Instant Barbie!
