M&M Halloween Costume

M&M Halloween Costume

This year my 15 year old daughter wanted a M&M Halloween costume. It could not be found anywhere. I started to research some sites on how to make the costume. I got the idea from It came out great. She loved it. The costume was simple and only took one hour.

I took two sweatshirts, one her size and one that was three times her size. I then sewed the two bottom bands together as well as the bands at the wrists. I put polyfill stuffing in between the two sweatshirts. I cut out a lowercase m on white sticky felt and put it in the middle of the larger sweatshirt. Voila that's it.

She looked great and got compliments all day long. To finish the look she wore skin color leggings and white gloves as well as white sneakers. The whole costume cost me $13.00. It was my first time making a costume and it came out fantastic.

Coolest Homemade Green M&M Costume 4

Homemade Green M&M Costume

Homemade Green M&M Costume

Our daughter has had an obsession with M&M's since she was a baby and this year we vowed to make her a Homemade Green M&M Costume! We took tubing from the lawn and garden store and shaped it around her body and used it for a pattern. We then made a pattern with fabric, and stuffed it with poly-fill.

We covered it with green fuzzy fabric and embellished the face with brightly colored fabrics. For the eyes we used black netting and it worked perfectly to hide her little face.

It was a great costume and light weight for a little person.

I wanted something different than the normal costume. I bought a bag of M&M's and copied it to life size - all the way down to the ingredients on the back with the bar code. It is comfortable to wear and it doesn't take up much storage. It's also fun to see people's reaction.

That is a spectacular costume! How did you get it to print in "life" size? Printed on what type of fabric? Thanks

This looks so real! I bet if you put the costume far away, and take a picture, someone would mistake it for the real candy!

All the print was hand painted with squeeze puff fabric paint on felt, it was not printed but hand painted over a series of three days. After two years the paint is still on and it looks the same. The giant M&M was fabric that was double fused onto the felt.

WOW ! nice costume !
