Homemade Davy Jones Costume from Pirates of Caribbean

Hello my homemade costume friends; (sorry if I make some English mistake) my name is Teddy, I live in Brazil, in a city call Iguaçu Falls. For last year I decide to make my own Davy Jones costume from Pirates of Caribbean. In our town we have this costume party every year that has a costume contest which I won in 2009 with this Homemade Davy Jones Costume from Pirates of Caribbean.

I started watching some pictures of the movie, drawings, pictures by side and back of the character, watching some other Davy Jones costumes on Youtube. I´ve seen great talented guys making latex masks and other expensive stuff, them I decided to make mine as cheap as possible, using recyclables and some other cheap materials.

I used cardboard for the inside and paper mache for the outside for the Davy´s crab Claw, and crab Leg and Paper Mache for the Mask. For the Tentacles I used foam underneath and cirugic gloves cutted finger by finger and put together with a hot glue gun. The details of the bottom of the sea are made with paper mache and real sea shells. The other details you can see better on my Youtube video:



Thank you, any questions just post below and I'll answer!

Coolest Tarzan Costume

Homemade Tarzan Costume

Homemade Tarzan Costume

I am just in love with my son's chubby legs and arms. I needed to think of a costume that would showcase just that! It was either Bam Bam or Tarzan. I decided to go with Tarzan and could not be happier with the finished product.

I purchased 1-yd of leopard material. I traced a pattern from a one-sleeve dress of my daughters. Sewed the side seams, leaving about a 2-3 inch opening on the left seam and sewed in Velcro to make it easier to put on. Finish the bottom by cutting a zig-zag pattern.

Leg covers. I purchased two sheets of brown felt. Then cut to fit my son's leg. Made a drawstring opening at the top of each piece of felt and used a shoe lace to close. To add the finishing touch I hot glued some faux fur on top of the felt.

Armband - Used a small piece of left over fabric. Used a pair of my daughter?s old bloomers to cover his diaper.

For Tarzan's club I used a small bat we already had. I then bought some black felt that had an alligator like pattern. Traced the bat, sewed the sides, stuck the bat in and then hand sewed the top.

He was a hit! We received so many compliments?

Total spent: $12

Coolest Homemade Sound of Music Family Costume

Homemade Sound of Music Family Costume

Homemade Sound of Music Family Costume

The Sound of Music sing-a-long came through town a few years ago, and because my family LOVES to dress up we of course had to go in a Homemade Sound of Music Family Costume.

My dad and Aunt were Mr. Von Trap and the Barronness, and they just wore there own clothes. My dad wore a suit and tie and sleeked back his hair and my Aunt wore a coat, scarf and a furry hat.

The trick to this group costume is a bunch of girls (and 2 boys if possible) and a bunch of the same fabric that looks something like curtain fabric, no one will get it otherwise.

My mom made each of us an outfit from the blue fabric and made them all different but still keeping in mind the Austrian/German look of the time.(For example the ties up the front and the rick-rack trims) We all wore white blouses underneath and the young ones also got bandannas of the same fabric. I wore my hair in looped breads like they do in the movie.

This has always been one of my favorite movies and the sing-a-long movie was super fun, but made even better with the costumes.
We also won one of the costume prizes for these at the event.
