My daughter was talking about what she would dress up as for Halloween and while talking about it over supper we decided that she dress in her favorite treat food! My oldest loves Dairy Queen Blizzards and I immediately started to think about how to put her Dairy Queen Blizzard Costume together. After much searching in the internet I came up with NO ideas at all. So, I had to come up with idea totally from scratch.
I thought of using a piece of fabric for the blue cup, and then came up with the idea to use a hulahoop to form the roundness of the cup, on the top and bottom. I created a way for the 'cup' to sit on her shoulders in order for it to stay on her while she walked around. I glued white fluff on the top to make it look like the icecream and then glued pieces of brown painted cardboard to make it look like pieces of chocolate in the icecream. I bought a sheet of iron n paper and downloaded a logo from the internet, printed it on the paper then ironed it onto the front of the cup.
I think over all it looked pretty genuine and she absolutely LOVED it! She got a lot of comments on her costume as well.

' Ice' is an upside down laundry basket from the dollar store, with bottom cut for head and 2 arm holes cut away. Wrapped some batting to 'fluff', then wrapped sparkle tulle round and round in 4 colors to make rainbow ice.
Bottom is a rubber toy bin with bottom cut out. It has white vinyl from Joanne's pleated and stapled into rows to make 'paper cup'. Used lots of hot glue, staples, and tape, it held up great!
This Homemade Italian Ice Costume was Warm, comfy, and very sweet.
