Easiest Costume Ever Made

This Loofah sponge Halloween costume is easy to make and fairly inexpensive. It was all my daughter’s idea. It was awesome.

The ladies at the fabric store loved the idea. All you need is lots of large safety pins, netting and white rope. First, we bought 16 1/2 yards of pink netting (any bright color will do). She is 10, so depending on the size of the person wearing it, you will need more or less netting. Next, we gathered and pinned the netting in different places along the fabric to give the costume a puffy look to it. Take the rope and pin it to the shirt making a loop.

After that, I wrapped it around my daughter. I started by pinning it to my daughter's shirt on the side. I suggest that you either dress in the color of your netting or in all white. We wrapped it around her body from her shoulders to a little bit below her bottom. Pin the other end to the shirt as well and pulled the loop of rope out so it hangs freely.

There you have it! She entered a costume contest and won! She painted red circles on her face with lipstick and carried a loofah on a stick. She also wore it on her lips in a really dark red. I hope you try this!

Coolest Loofah Costume 6

I found the idea for a loofah costume here and ran with it. I used pink tulle and a LOT of safety pins. I gathered squares of the tulle in one bunch then safety pinned it together and then safety pinned it to a pink shirt. I wore pink shorts and some stretch pants under those, because it was cold here in November.

I just used cheap rope for the string of my loofah and honestly that was the only way a lot of people figured out what I was. Some would say cotton candy; then I'd lift the rope and they'd get it.

You would need large basting safety pins to make the bunches. I also bought some of the colored hair spray (pink of course) and sprayed my entire head with it. I made little tiny bunches of the tulle for the top of my head.

I also bought some gold glitter spray and sprayed every inch of the costume, my body and my hair. The glitter in the right light looked like my loofah was wet.

Have fun with it! I must have gotten 50 comments through out the day and night.

Loofah Costume

Loofah Costume

Well, basically I was searching frantically and wanted something that was somewhat original, and yet still looks hot. I got millions of comments, thousands of pictures with random people and won 2 contests. Here's what I did for my loofah costume.

30 yards of cheap netting.
3 yards or decorative cord for a loofah string
10 yards of cord (to gather it all)
(tons) of safety pins.
about 6 hours of gathering and pinning.

I gathered strips of folded netting into bunches. Then pinned the bunches around a tank top. I did that about 8 times to the front and 8 to the back.

Slip on some cute leggings (mini skirt if your leggings are see-through)
-A pair of heels
-Fake eye lashes
-LOTS of glitter

(not pictured I carried a loofah stick like a wand, and bubbles.)

Make sure to have a smile and be careful you don't poke yourself!
