Coolest Macaroni and Cheese Costume - The finished Macaroni Cup & Fork
Coolest Macaroni and Cheese Costume - Dripped hot glue and painted it orange
Coolest Macaroni and Cheese Costume - Fork before Macaroni was added
My little sister came to me with an idea for her next Halloween costume - she wanted to be her favorite food, Macaroni and cheese. As the big sister, I am frequently called upon to make something "cool". I looked around a little for ideas, and then got to work.
I made the "cup" from a small white laundry basket, and cut out the bottom. I had saved toilet paper tubes and painted them orange. I made the label out of regular white poster board, drew & painted on the logo. I then hot glued the label to the basket, and then the "macaroni". I added straps I made from an old sheet and glued salt & pepper shakers I made from cardboard.
The fork is made from cardboard I cut in the shape of a fork, then attached it to a Christmas paper roll. I added some newspaper and paper mache'd the handle of the fork & painted it to look like a real fork. I cut and hot glued the noodles to the fork, and added a lot of extra hot glue to create "gooey cheese" and then painted the dried glue orange.
I also made a cardboard "Kraft" logo, and made a sparkly hair clip. My little sister had such a good time, and definitely soaked up all the comments she got on her "coolest homemade Macaroni and Cheese costume"!
Comments for Coolest Macaroni and Cheese Costume 7
I'm from Wisconsin and LOVE Cheese so I decided to be a "naughty" version of Macaroni.
My bowl is a Rubbermaid container (I cut the bottom out). I removed the handles and added longer straps to hang on my shoulders. My bowl is filled with painted toilet paper rolls. On the top of my bowl I used a foam wreath base. I cut them in half and painted them yellow as well. I made jewelry out of spiral and various other pasta noodles.
The logo on the front is painted on a piece of canvas and there is calorie information on the back. I made a crown that says "Sleazy Mac- Ready in 3 1/2 minutes" The bra is a foam cheese bra (same material as a Green Bay Foam cheese head).
I braided my hair and fed a hanger through my braids so the curls would stay in the air. The fork was a piece of "art" from the 70's. I exacto knifed some holes in the Toilet paper rolls so I could stick them on the fork.
I received a lot of compliments on my Homemade Sleazy Macaroni and Cheese Costume.
My daughter loves Easy Mac and wanted me to make a Macaroni and Cheese costume for Halloween. I started with an old laundry basket I had lying around and cut a hole in the bottom for her to step into and wear around her waist. It was a nice fit, so no straps were needed at all.
I covered the basket with cardboard recycled from old Christmas shirt boxes and painted it to look like the Easy Mac bowl. Then I took another piece of cardboard and cut it to fit inside the bowl in front of her. On this piece I glued lots of macaroni made from recycled paper towel tubes, toilet paper tubes and wrapping paper tubes painted a very cheesy yellowish-orange. I connected more tubes with clear elastic to make the "hat".
The fork is made from another wrapping paper tube and cardboard covered with duct tape and spray painted silver. Believe it or not, all of these supplies were on hand and I did not spend a dime on this costume.
She won "Most Original" at her school Fall Festival and got lots and lots of compliments!
