My son came to me and he was three at the time and said he wanted to be a hotdog because it was his favorite food. Well I had no luck with finding a Hot Dog Costume so I began brainstorming. I ended up using a roll of foam from the craft department at Wal-Mart. Then I had to get the bun look so I watered down some brown craft paint and painted the foam after cuttin two arm holes and shaping it. Then I got some fabric from the clearance section and it was kinda heavy and shiny but in a peach color, for the body. I used fabric clue so I didn't have to sew it. Then I cut out yellow and red felt and glued it to the pinkish fabric. The bun would not stop opening up so I hand stitched some Velcro onto the bun and the body (hot dog)!
The end result gave me quite a few compliments while Trick-Or-Treating and he was the ONLY hot dog!
This is for the Hot Dog Vendor costume (the one in the middle).
Supplies: White shirt Red Tie Cardboard Box (kind used for carrying canned cokes) Stick on Letters Empty Ketchup & Mustang bottled Hot Dog Buns & Aluminum Foil Rope
We took a cardboard box (kind canned cokes come in) and used stick on felt type letters to spell out "Hot Dogs .50". We hot glued the Ketchup & Mustard bottles to the cardboard.
We also wrapped several buns in aluminum foil and hot glued them on top of one another. We put holes in the sides and she put it around her neck. We left the back area open and she used that area for candy she got from Trick or Treating.
I got the idea to do this Hot Dog on a Stick Couples Costume after going to the mall and visiting the hot dog on a stick stand. They are known for having dorky costumes. I made the dress out of a t-shirt and fabric I purchased for the skirt. The hat was made out of a plastic top hat, the kind you wear for New Years, and added fabric. I purchased knee high boots from Goodwill and spray painted them to look like mustard and ketchup bottles. The corn dog was made using felt, paint, and a dowel rod.
