My husband and I LOVE Halloween and we like to be really unique with our costumes! This year we decided to be a magician and his assistant - with a twist!! The costume is called "Magic Trick Gone Wrong" and is based off of the famous magic trick of cutting the assistant in half.

In order for this trick to "go wrong" we made it look like I was cut in half and we gave him a bloody saw. We did this by buying a belt and making it lumpy with toilet paper rolls (without the toilet paper) and black duck tape. We then put red paint on the belt and red felt to give it a grosser look. We cut a hole in my dress and I wore the belt underneath of the dress with the "guts" sticking out.

You can make this costume with any variety of outfits and accessories but we went with the more "old timey look." You can also make it a lot gorier by adding more material and blood to the belt, saw, and even on the magician himself. It was really fun to make and it was a huge hit.

This Magic Trick Gone Wrong Couple Costume is very original - I know I've never heard of anything like it!

Coolest Magican And Rabbit In The Hat Costume

Homemade Magican And Rabbit In The Hat Costume

My two daughters wanted to be a magician and a rabbit in the hat.

For the Rabbit in the hat I took an ice cream bucket from 31 flavors and covered it with black shiny material. All I did was hot glue the material, add a Styrofoam brim also covered with material, and to hold the brim up I used duct tape. I do not know how to sew! So the hot glue gun works great!

I added a string to hold up the bucket. Used a white turtle neck, a boa and hot glued the boa to the turtle neck. I bought Rabbit ears and painted my daughters face.

For the Magician I just bought a black cape added the same stars and beads with a hot glue gun. Went to a second hand store and purchased a tuxedo silk shirt and made a magician
costume. I bought the hat at a party store.

My girls won all the costume contest last year at there school festival, and a few parties we were invited to.

From now on they want me to make all their costumes!

Thank you for posting. Can you share more on how you held the bucket up? (I know you mentioned the string and boa, but what is it attached to?)

For the hat we cut a circle with thick carton and cut out the center to make the side of hat. For the bottom of the hat we bought satin in black. Glue-gunned every piece together. Covered the circle with satin, used a red ribbon to go over his shoulder to carry the hat.

For ears used white foam sheet and pink to look like real ears, sewed it to a baby cap. For body used an under tunic and cut out a pink foam sheet, glued it to the tunic in front. For hands used shoe shining gloves and again foam to make paws.

Finally painted his face.
