Coolest Homemade Woodland Fairy Costume 16

Homemade Woodland Fairy Costume

I made this Homemade Woodland Fairy Costume for my daughter when she was 3 yrs.

I had this little lace dress that was given to me for her but she never got a chance to wear it. So I decided I would use it with this costume. I took 2 coat hangers and hooped the bottom of her dress. I then took a purple shirt and used it as a liner. I took fake ivy leaves and blue feather butterflies and attached them at random places.

I attached 99c angel wings and added leaves, sticks & butterflies to it too. I fixed up a headband for her with leaves and butterflies and then proceeded to work on her face. I had some scar skin putty and some liquid latex and formed the pointy nose and fairy ears. I then painted embellishments on her face with fabric paint to blend the putty in with her natural tones and a pretty painted purple mask as well. Fixing her up this way took about 2 hours tops.

The costume was a days worth.

Coolest Homemade Fairy Girl Costume 17

Homemade Fairy Girl Costume

Homemade Fairy Girl Costume

I made my daughter's Homemade Fairy Girl Costume out of random purple, blue and pink fabric scraps I had lying around and some of my fake plants.

I spent a total of $10 at the Dollar Store on the stockings, the hair pieces, the slippers and a part of the wings. My husband made most of the wings out of one small cheap set of wings from the Dollar Store and the rest he made out of wire and stockings. I painted them to give a fairy- wing effect.

I sewed a leotard together by guessing a pattern and then sewed stocking on for sleeves. I then made little bell sleeves from scrap material. For the tutu, I took a piece of elastic and tied scraps all around it and then just sewed on all the leaves and flowers by hand.

My mom and I make the girls fairy costumes every year. The first thing we look for is the large flower to put on their heads then we usually find a matching dress in their closet. We've even been known to use a cute bathing suit top one year.

Then we use ribbon or a tutu for a skirt and add face painting and glitter. This year I am going to add butterflies to their headpiece and possibly their costume. I also bought stick on jewels that I'm going to try to stick on their face. Sometimes they carry a wand. I haven't really made their wands yet but I would love to do that one of these years.

Coolest Fall Fairy Costume 14

Homemade Fall Fairy Costume

We found a fairy pattern and bought sunflowers and glued them to the bottom of the robe and small ones for her shoes.

The wings on the Fall Fairy Costume were wire then with a taffeta over the wire glued to it. I tried to attach them with Velcro but ended up tacking them into place. I used the same fall flowers and wire to create the head piece.

I found elf ears and used spirit gum to glue to the top of her ears, added glitter eye shadow and curls to her hair and she was perfect.

I made this costume a few years ago, just for a photoshoot and a documentation. I used some textiles, I needled them. I colored some of them with batik textil-paint. For the jewelery I used pearls and braids.

how to make the dress
by: Anonymous

The dress is super easy to make. The fuller the better. Get a piece of elastic and make that be your base. Then pick 2 or 3 colors of tulle. I found that 3 inch strips work the best. Then tie them to the elastic strip. It's like a halter top dress. Hot glue the flowers to hide the chi-chis/ta-ta's and add ribbon to tie it around your neck.
