My costume is of the Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Everything that I bought was either from Wal-mart or Micheal's craft store and the dress I used was just something I had. First I dyed the dress yellow using clothing dye from Micheal's then after it dried I started to construct the dress. All you have to do is take the pack of gum as a guide line and cut out red felt for the red pieces and I bought letters from Wal-mart and some craft glue and glued the letters and felt on the dress that way. I did have to make and paint some of the letters. All of the juicy fruit letters are made out of blue foam and the Wrigley's is just the white letters that I bought but painted red.
The silver on top is the shiny type ribbon you can find at Wal-mart also in the sewing area. It took lots of hours and hard work getting everything to look perfect by me and my sister but in the end I'm very happy with it. Everyone always thinks I bought it because of how good it looks. Hope you enjoy :)

Bubble Gum Machine Costume Idea
My daughter was in love with the bubble-gum machine at a local video store. So of course when asked what she wanted to be for Halloween-a Bubble Gum Machine Costume Idea it was!
We started of with about 144 ping-pong balls, stabbed toothpicks into them and dipped them in to cups of paint, as if we were dying Easter eggs. Some we even swirled them!
Next I sewed red material to form the base, and added galvanized wire for shape. Glued some foil on it for the handles & added puffy paint.
The top is sewn out of clear plastic tablecloth sold by the yard at your local Wal-wart. I added elastic to the plastic to hold the balls in. Made her a cute little hat as the lid, and EVERYONE LOVED IT!!!
