To make this Homemade Edward Scissorhands Costume for my 9 year old son I headed to a couple of local thrift stores to purchase a leather jacket & several belts and to Home Depot for some furniture nails, rings and washers.

First I cut the jacket’s sides, arms and wrists and sewed them with an upholstery needle and thread. Then I hot glued belts around and over the jacket, avoiding zipper. I used snaps between zipper and belt buckle to keep belts in place. I also hot glued belt pieces to arms of jacket.

Next, I hot glued tops of furniture nails and washers to belts. I either sewed or used black electrical tape to keep rings in place. Velcro was used to hold leather collar and keep the belt on his leg secure.

He wore a pair of black skinny jeans and an old pair of Converse that we spray painted black. I bought a female black wig at Wal-Mart for $6 that I cut, teased and sprayed with Aqua Net to hold.

For make-up I used a tube of white face cream make-up, grayish-purple eye shadow, black liner for lips and a couple of scars I bought online.
I didn’t want to attempt the scissor hands so I purchased them online for about $25.

He was a hit at school and on Halloween!

This is my daughter Jonna dressed as Edward Scissorhands in 2010. She loves all things Tim Burton so this DIY Edward Scissorhands Halloween costume was an easy choice.

The base of the costume is simple stretch pants that look like leather and a black shirt. All of the belts and "hardware" on her costume are from a local "Everything's a Dollar" type stores. The studs and "rivets" on the belts are made from brass binder studs and paper hole protectors painted gold. The wig is a simple black cropped wig she got at Wal Mart.

The most challenging part of this costume was of course the scissorhands pieces. She started with black knit gloves (the kind that start really small and then stretch to fit) to which she attached "scissor blades" traced and cut out of craft foamboard. The blades were spray painted silver then sewn to the gloves as well as the various springs and hardware that her grandpa gave her from his tool shop.

Needless to say that she got many compliments on her DIY Edward Scissorhands Halloween costume and she and her mother should be very proud of their efforts. It really turned out awesome!

Being a huge fan of Tim Burton's Edward Scissorhands film, I found it exciting to walk a day in Edward's shoes.

My DIY Edward Scissorhands Halloween costume is a compilation of thrift store items: black belts (six to be exact), black leather pants, a black motorcycle jacket and a black sleeveless top with metal rings along the shoulder & neckline.

My scissorhands were made from cardboard in which I sprayed with chrome metallic spray paint from the auto department of Walmart. As for makeup, a glue stick came in handy to conceal my eyebrows and to create Edwards scars. My foundation, a very light concealer and powder and the shadowing was a combination of brown and purple tinted shadows. Also, I have blonde hair and green eyes so I used black hair spray and black out contact lenses to complete the look. I absolutely LOVED being Edward Scissorhands for Halloween!

well, I wasn't sure on what would be my costume for Halloween, but I decided to be Edward Scissorhands because a lot of people told me I look like him, even if I don't think so. Anyways, I made my Homemade Edward Scissorhands Costume and here is how it looks, I'm not totally satisfied, but it looks cool anyways.

I go to a massive party that day and there was a contest for costumes, but it failed and I don't even know who was the winner.

Good job man, but yeah I do think you need scissor hands to be Edward Scissorhands, even if you do kinda look like him. I'm making a similar costume in a couple of weeks' time, but unfortunately I look nothing like Johnny Depp.
