I LOVE LUCY....so for Halloween I decided to dress up as one of my favorite episodes...the chocolate factory scene!
My mom handmade my Lucy chocolate factory uniform and hat. I accessorized with a pearl necklace and earrings. When I purchased the Lucy wig, I started to look just like her! I really got into it!
My brother handmade a working conveyor belt and we made chocolates out of polymer clay and attached to the conveyor belt. So, the chocolates went around and around! So cool! I also stuffed my mouth, so it looked full (just like Lucys), first with chocolate, but then I kept eating the chocolate so I used gumballs! lol
My costume also played the theme song from I Love Lucy!
This homemade I Love Lucy Halloween costume took about 2 weeks to make but was a blast to wear, even after the belly ache from all the chocolate!
This is my twenty-two month old daughter Leila Jayde Carrington as Lucille Ball. Me and my mother made this costume. Everything is homemade except for a few parts of the dress and the jewelry.
I like to incorporate her naturally curly red hair into her Halloween costumes. Last year she was Pebbles Flintstone.
We bought the dress at a resale shop. It was supposed to be a Minnie Mouse costume but we made several changes to make it look like a 50's style dress. I made the apron by hand and the "I Love Lucy" heart was made with a piece of felt and white fabric paint.
I used a razor to cut the big white bow off the front of the dress and hot glued a hair clip to it to make the "Lucy" bow.
