Loofah Halloween Costume

I got my idea from this website for a Loofah Halloween costume. Everyone at the party loved it, they thought it was so funny. It took FOREVER to make though, because I had to wear it for 2 different parties, so I decided to sew it instead of using safety pins.

I had never touched a sewing machine before in my life, so I just got some really stretchy material and made a tube dress so that it would just stretch to my body, then I added a strap to it so it would stay on. I ended up going back to the fabric store quite a few times to get more netting, but I think I ended up getting about 20-30 yards.

I just started making loops at the bottom of the dress and went all the way around the whole thing (making them bigger in the middle and smaller at the bottom) then I sewed a rope to the middle of it. There was probably about 60 people at the party and I definitely got the most compliments.

This took forever! I probably spent about 7 or 8 hours making it. And it cost about $40.

Coolest Shower Loofah Halloween Costume 7

Shower Loofah Halloween Costume

This year was kind of crazy for me. Being that I am an "adult" now, I was over the whole sexy costumes that every girl in college wore. I decided to be something that was basic but easy and that I could still be sexy but sexy-ute. I talked to a friend and decided the shower loofah Halloween costume was a great idea.

I used a short mini dress that I bought and went to a fabric store to grab some tulle. It took me about and 30 minutes to make the whole thing. I just wrapped the tulle around the front and stapled it to the dress. I bought the handle for $5 from Kmart and whala! I am a shower loofah.

The whole costume cost $25. Even if I don't win I think its a fun costume that's cheap and easy but doesn't make me look cheap or easy. Good luck finding the best out there! Can't wait to see all the entries.

Got the idea from Wendy of FL. Thanks by the way!!! Thought is was an amazing and unique idea especially for a costume contest.

We used about 30 yards of netting, a tank top, about 50 safety pins, and 1 yd of cord per costume. I attached the cord as a halter around my neck to help hold up the netting weight. My loofah (the pink one) seemed to take much longer to create than my friend's did. I guess it all depends on how articulate you want to be with it.

Either way, the loofahs were a huge hit and everyone loved getting close and scrubbin on us all night!

Where did you buy the netting?

I would love to borrow this idea for this Halloween. Can you tell me where you picked up the netting? And what kind of fabric it is exactly?

Thanks!

Go to Michaels it is $4:99 for 25 yards...way cheaper than the Fabric store which sells it for $108.00 for 36 yards.

I wanted to dress up for Halloween but I didn't want to look like everyone else. So, I came to this website and found the loofah Halloween costume idea from Wendy and thought it was a great idea!

I bought 50 yards of tulle and 150 safety pins. It took me awhile to get all put together, but I did it! I also had some left over so I made a head band to top it off.

Everyone loved it and I won 1st place at my work!
