We got the headless girl costume idea from this site. My daughter loved it. So we set off to make it. This was the easiest and cheapest costume I have ever made. I set out to thrift stores to find a dress. When I got the dress home I got a rolling backpack and duck taped a pillow to the top. I then cut off the rest of the backpack so that only the top of it and the armholes were left. I stuffed it into the dress and used more cotton to form the body. I purchased hands at a Halloween store and stuffed them into the sleeves with cotton to make the arms.
I then cut a hole in the dress for my daughters head. The hands were fastened around her head with safety pins. The neck of the headless girl costume was made with a sour cream container paper mache, paint and melted crayons. She won a Halloween contest and was also stopped on the streets for pictures. She looked awesome. Total spent $15 on hands and dress.
We got the idea online for our Homemade Headless Girl Costume so we went down to the local Goodwill and bought a roll around child's back pack, a black dress and gloves for all less then 10 bucks. Then we cut the back pack part off and lifted the handle and glued it up then hot glued a clothes hanger to the top then slide the dress over it and stuffed it with an old pillow. Then we tried it on to see where to cut the hole for the head. Once the hole was cut we stuffed the arms and gloves then hot glued them right under the head.
And now for the neck, we took a 2 liter drink bottle and cut it then covered it with paper mache then did little paper mache balls and glued them to the top to give it the gut look and covered it with fake blood.
This is my Headless Woman Costume. I got the idea from your website and I wanted to be different from everyone else on Halloween. Everyone was impressed with it and thought that it was scary. I won the best costume prize too.
To do it I used like an old camping backpack and I attached BUBBLERAPP on two steel bars for the arms. Then I just made an little hole where I could take out my head. And the fake blood I bought in a local store and the old dress was my moms.
I'm 13 and I enjoyed this headless costume, so I hope that you will to!
