Coolest Raspberry Costume 6

The raspberry costume went down an absolute treat! It was easy and cheap to create, I bought 30 red balloons and attached them to my top carefully with safety pins (you'll need a friend to help!)I didn't inflate the balloons TOO much because they were too big and drooped.

I wore black shorts and a plain black top along with a pair of green tights. My stalk and leaf 'hat' was made simply by cutting a toilet roll in half and covering with green felt then cutting leaf shapes out from the remaining felt, with a bit of glue they stuck easily together and I attached it to a headband with a few hair grips. The total cost of my outfit was £3.75 BARGAIN!

It took my friend and I about 30mins to inflate and pin the balloons on me but more people you have helping the quicker it is. It's not the easiest costume to move in but my attempt to sit down was comedy. I think this is my best costume to date and i thoroughly enjoyed it!

Coolest Homemade Grapes Costume 4

Homemade Grapes Costume

Homemade Grapes Costume

This grapes costume was a relatively simple costume to make. She wore a purple sweatsuit (with a hood) and I made, out of a big piece of felt from the fabric store, an A0line shaped dress. I am not a big sewer - don't worry, it's easy to hide flaws with this thing.

I cut open the back and added ribbons to tie it closed, so that way it would be easy to get the balloons on and off over clothing. I blew up the balloons (from the dollar store) and safety pinned them on.

I pinned to the top of the hood some leaves I had made out of felt as well as a felt stem (I used a marker to color the stem and make it more realistic). I also cut out leaf shapes as shoe covers. I put ribbons to tie around the ankle and the bottom of the shoe.

Loved the idea and the baby is super cute! The costume is relatively simple to make and it's eye catching too, though it might be uncomfortable to do anything but stand in it.

Coolest Grapes Costume 5

Grapes Costume

Grapes Costume

This grape costume is the best costume I've ever made. All I had to do was buy about 2-3 bags of purple balloons, purple tights, a purple shirt and purple shorts. I also wore purple slippers and a green hat-to act as the stem.

I just blew up all of the balloons and carefully safety pinned them all over me, with some help. Everybody loved my costume, none of the balloons got popped until very late that night and I was able to sit because I was careful of where I placed the balloons. I also curled some ribbon to make veins.

I did it all in one day, and was running late so it took about an hour (including blowing up the balloons). It could be done faster with more people to help. I haven't thought of a better costume yet. It was a lot of fun.

I love the costume, first of all. I'd like to do it but want to know if you have any other pictures (like of the back of you)... You say you could sit down but wanted to see what it looked like to not have balloons covering your butt/back area. Also - can you explain more of what you did with the ribbon and veins?

Thanks!!

Coolest Homemade Grapes Costume 7

Homemade Grapes Costume

Homemade Grapes Costume

I made this Homemade Grapes Costume for a work Christmas party so the balloons were unfortunately popped quite quickly.

I got my flatmate to blow up all the balloons (I used light and dark metallic purple). I tied them in rows to tie around my body. Tip: Keep the grapes small - you'll find it easier to move and groove.

The head piece is made with crepe paper and cellophane stuff on a headband. Entire costume takes less than a hour.

Homemade Bunch of Grapes Baby Costume

I have twin 3 month old daughters and could not find a costume that could fit them and keep them warm. My 8 year old son and I were out looking for baby clothes and came up with the idea to dress them as a couple bunches of grapes. This Homemade Bunch of Grapes Baby Costume worked in the stroller as well.
