Homemade McDonalds Monopoly Couple DIY Costume

With a family of 6, McDonalds is just a part of dinner at least once week! As I sat in the drive thru, I realized I had the idea for this years costumes, a Homemade McDonalds Monopoly Couple DIY Costume. I purchased several clothing items from the local Goodwill and Salvation Army, made my own top hat out of a straw hat base, rounded in cardboard and cut up and old black satin dress for the fabric of the Top Hat. The cane was made out of an old plastic shower curtain rod, spray painted it black, made my money bag out of a pillow case!

The Jail mate was created by using some old t shirts and a baseball cap with the lip cut off and covered in a striped tshirt. The "In Jail" space was created with cardboard and poster board and hand written. The monopoly board was created using Word with tables and fill color.

I found the actual monopoly clip art on a monopoly website including the money! I uploaded my file and sent it to Fedex to print in color. Cut out each square using the actual McDonalds monopoly game board as my guide. I took McDonalds bags and cut out the different prizes and their logo. The $ symbols and dice were bought at the Dollar Tree. The finishing touch some white hairspray and glitter for a little something extra!

I don't sew so every thing that required assembly was put together with the power of the hot glue gun and some glue sticks!

Created this homemade Ronald McDonald Halloween costume idea with the help of my grandma (whose excellent at sewing). We purchased the fabric needed for the costume at a local fabric store. She sewed the costume up to my body dimensions starting with the yellow main part first working outward going to the sleeves and then fake pockets and red zipper. Lastly she finished it off by adding the oversize white collar and the red patch (cut out the M so the yellow shows through).

The socks, shoes and wig can be purchased at any Halloween store. For the gloves I went with those cleaning gloves that are yellow and could be found anywhere. Makeup brand does not matter, but it defiantly has to be grease based. I chose to go with Mehron (clown white, red and black). I applied the red first, then the white and finished it all off with the black. Baby power works great in sealing the make-up and making it look non-greasy, just make sure to use a powder puff and touch up where necessary with black liner.

Overall I spent about $70 but it was well worth it. Big perk about this costume besides the laughs is free McDonalds! =]

Coolest Homemade Ronald McDonald and Hamburgler Costume 4

Homemade Ronald McDonald and Hamburgler Costume

Homemade Ronald McDonald and Hamburgler Costume

This Homemade Ronald McDonald and Hamburgler Costume was a HUGE hit at the office, and trick-or-treating. It was very simple to make, and not very expensive to buy the accessories.

I bought white zip-up painters coveralls, spray painted the main body yellow. For the arms, I took regular paper tape, and colored it red with a marker (could use red tape if you can find it), and just taped it around the arms. The red stripe and McDonald sign was just paper colored and glued on!

As for the socks, I even made those too. I just had an old striped shirt I cut into sections large enough to wrap around my legs and used "No-Sew" Glue to glue them around the bottom of my pants. I did buy the shoes at a local magic/costume shop, as well as the wig. Just some creative make-up and wham! Ronald McDonald.

As for Hamburgler, my friend purchased a prisoner costume. We got a red tie and glued hamburger pictures we printed off the internet. We also sprayed her hair orange. The hat and cap was purchased separately.

This was the BEST costume ever. The kids trick-or-treating would just run up and hug me! So much fun!
