We decided to dress up as Ipod dancers. One day I was in the store and saw the Itunes gift card and noticed the Ipod dancers on the card. I thought it would be a neat idea to look like the silhouettes dancing in the Ipod commercials and on the gift cards. We dressed in all black and accented our costumes with colorful accessories to help our silhouette stand out. We made large Ipods and danced around the entire night. Several people commented on our costume and recognized what we were. As you can see one dancer used red to accentuate her costume. The other Ipod dancer used blue colors to accent the costume. Each of us wore converse shoes because we felt it would also add to the costume. We painted our faces black and tied bandanas around our head. We had a lot of fun with this costume and hope that others enjoy it as well.
This Homemade iPod Couple Costume is actually from a few years ago, but we still get compliments on it. We made them out of foam rubber, folded in half and stitched up the sides and cut out a hole in the top for our heads. I designed the front and backs of the iPods in PowerPoint on my computer, and then printed it off at Kinkos on really large paper which I then glued with a glue gun to the foam rubber.
Then we got white plastic colanders for the ear buds, covered them in foil and tied them together with yarn. A lot of people looked at the colanders and then laughed when they realized they were the ear buds.
If your little one is a music fan, or is used to seeing you attached to your iPod, you may want to re-consider throwing away the box when your next package arrives.
With a little paint, minimal artistic talent and a few supplies you will find around your home, you can easily create a Homemade iPod and Earbuds Costume for your budding music buddy.
Supplies you will need:
Medium-sized cardboard box Red and gray paint (the Livos Salis finger paints can be diluted with a little water to make them paintbrush accessible) Box cutter Poster board Rubber cement or glue Plastic wrap Tape
Comments for Coolest Homemade iPod and Earbuds Costume 6
For this Homemade Sexy Ipod Costume for my daughter (who loves her Ipod more than anything), I sewed a form-fitting black satin mini dress. Then I designed the Ipod screen on my computer (complete with the song "Give it To Me" by Timbaland, per her request) and printed it off on iron-on transfer paper.
I ironed it onto white fabric and then used white fabric to create a click wheel. I sewed both onto the dress and covered them with clear plastic to make it more realistic. On the back of the costume, right on her lower back, was the bright white apple icon.
This year, my boyfriend and I went as iPod earbud headphones. We were connected by a cable and even played music out of a portable speaker mounted inside, so we were really authentic. We were a hit everywhere we went, because we were able to provide music to people standing in line at the bar and at house parties. The costumes were constructed from hoola hoops, fabric and LOTS of duct tape.
