Homemade Wilma Flintstone and Betty Rubble Costume
My best friend flew out to come hang out with me on Halloween. So we decided to do a duo costume, we created a homemade Wilma Flinstone and Betty Rubble costume!
For Wilma I bought a plain white dress that was just a swimsuit cover up. I cut it so that it would become a halter top. Then cut the bottom to make it raged looking. I went to a fabric store and bought some animal print and sewed on random patched. I also made a real pocket in the front big enough for my phone and some lip gloss! With the left over fabric I put in my hair. Oddly enough I did have that big pearl necklace before. Also, I did end up wearing shoes! I just slipped on some flip flops.
For Betty, again it was just a loose swimsuit cover up I actually had. We again cut it to make it a halter and the bottom to look rugged. The zebra fabric belt and black necklace I had before hand (hah what can I say I love random accessories) Brooke bought the black wig cause it was a must!
Hope this helps future best friends with an awesome duo homemade Wilma Flinstone and Betty Rubble costume.
My best friend and I handmade this Homemade Flintstones Group Costume! I was Betty, my son was Bamm Bamm, my boyfriend was Barney / Fred, my best friend was Wilma and her daughter was Pebbles. We had so much fun making these costumes. We made all of them a week before Halloween and we had never made a costume before. My best friend tried so hard to find someone to be Fred but no one wanted to so I had the idea of putting the two together and it turned out every one loved it! I didnt know how to sew so I hot glued the costumes together. I was very scared they would fall apart while we were walking but they never did!
I looked everywhere for some blue fabric that I liked but never found any for my Betty costume so I sray paited my dress blue and my bow. It was by far my favorite costume I have ever worn.
For Fred, I bought some orange fabric and sewed it together and then cut jagged edges. I think I used black felt material to make triangles and glued them to the outfit. The blue tie was an old tie he had and I just cut it to make it jagged. We sprayed his hair and goatee black and he went barefoot.
For Wilma, I bought a used shower curtain from the thrift store and sewed it together than cut it to make it jagged. I bought a cheap wig and sprayed it orange. I found a necklace for a dollar at the dollar store. I wore white flip flops with it. I also did bright pink blush and bright red lipstick.
For Pebbles, she had black leggings with a green t-shirt. I cute out black felt triangles and glued them to the shirt. Her hair was in pigtails with plastic bones in each pigtail.
I got the idea for this Homemade Fred and Wilma Flintstone Costume from this site. I made the Wilma costume out of white fleece. I used elastic to hold the neck together. I made the necklace and earrings out of Styrofoam balls I bought at a craft store. Fred was made out of orange fabric. I folded the fabric in half, cut a dinner plate sized hole for the neck, then put it on my husband. I pinned the sides and sewed to fit him. The black spots are felt ironed on with stitch witchery. The tie was made out of blue fabric cut and sewed in the shape of a tie. Wigs finished the costumes.
Our Homemade Flintstones Family Costume, Fred, Wilma, Pebbles, Bambam and Dino. Including the dogs is a must hehe. All costumes are hand sewn using fleece fabric. Hand colored doll wig for the dogs. Use the dogs' real bone to tie Bambam's outfit.
