In 2009 I was a Brick House (inspiration was the song “Brick House” by the Commodores). The dress was a red cotton material which I tailored to fit me with a cute cut. I measured about 1in by 3in for each brick square and stenciled out the pattern with a pencil. I then went back with fabric paint and painted all the lines white. It kind of smudged a bit but that ended up being ok because the cement between bricks aren’t perfectly straight.

Next, I cut out a door and windows out of felt. I glued those onto the dress. It can be a little naughty with the placement of the door and windows, but I didn’t not allow the door and windows to open! I wore the dress with brown leggings and brown heels. If I had more time I would have added a roof hat (with a chimney) and perhaps made grass/hedge tights with flowers or something. I played the "Brick House" song by the Commodores on repeat at our party... "She's a BRICK house.... she's mighty might just letting it all hang out."

This Homemade Brick House Costume was SUCH a fun costume!

Every year we make our costumes, and this year we decided to make a Homemade Sensational Stainless Steel Refrigerator Costume. It took me about 10 hours all together to complete. What I did was put gray duct tape evenly around the outside of two boxes. One box should be a little smaller than the other. Then I cut open the side that I wanted to use to make it look like the freezer door was open. After, I lined the inside of the freezer with tinfoil. I glued it with normal Elmer's glue. I used 2 cookie racks and twist tied them for the ice compartment ( I hot glued those in).

The door shelves were made out of cardboard and masking tape, painted black. I super glued all the add-on items to it. For the door handles, we just bought some from the store and super glued as well. I went online and printed out a picture of ice maker and glued it, then cut a hole around it, put a handle on the inside so, my child could open and close it.

I think this is probably one of the coolest costumes we've made!

Coolest Ceiling Fan Halloween Costume 20

A ceiling's number one fan!

A ceiling's number one fan!

My costume was an incredibly easy and cheap thing to pull off. It's a clever play on words that you may have to explain to some of your friends who may not be as bright as you. The shirt says "GO CEILINGS" and the sign says "CEILINGS ARE NUMBER 1!" I bought the shirt, hat and materials for the sign at a craft store along with the paints and iron-on letters for the shirt and hat. I chose blue and white because those are common team colors. The pants I bought for super cheap at a thrift store and cut them to make it a little flirty. At first a few people didn't understand the play on words but everyone thought it was very funny. A big hit especially if you're tight on money.

I don't understand the meaning of the sign or the shirt. Can you explain for the less intelligent?

Thanks.

Re: above comment, the costume is a Ceiling Fan. Take that literally, and you're a fan of ceilings (like a sports fan is a fan of sports).

Awesome!

Homemade Chandelier Costume

CHANDELIER

CHANDELIER

I was a Chandelier, not Bjork or a gold Christmas tree as many people asked.

old school wire hangers formed to my head and braided my hair around it then sprayed my head. Bought the cheapest dress I could at the thrift store and spray painted it gold. Hung Clear Christmas ornaments off the ends of my hair and put gold glitter on around them and put pieces of glow sticks inside the ornaments so they looked like they were lit up, but that only worked for about an hour.
