My son Landen wanted to be a mummy this year. Instead of just wrapping him in gauze I took white fabric that I had on hand and ripped it into strips. I then soaked the strips in tea overnight, in the morning I put them in the dryer.
I bought a pair of stretch pants at Walmart for $3.88, bought a long sleeve t-shirt from the goodwill for 99 cents and used an old dress-up Spiderman mask we had at the house and hot glued the strips all over. I had to cut eye-holes on the mask. The mask was a little tricky but I like the way it turned out.
This Mummy Costume was very warm and we got a lot of compliments on it. I was very happy with the way this costume looked, also it was easy for my son to move around in and it kept him very warm. This was my first year making a homemade costume, I will be doing it again next year, it saved me a lot of money!
I went to a thrift store and purchased a white long sleeved shirt and a pair of white pants for this Homemade Mummy Costume. I then went to a local fabric store and bought 9 yards of fabric in an "undead" color.
Then I cut the fabric by hand, into about 150 small jagged strips. Then with 10 spools of "undead" colored thread, I layed out a pattern of strips on the clothing and then painstakingly hand sewed each strip in layers until I got the desired shredded torn up look. Then I attached a few fake ring spiders to it and then wrapped my hands, head, and shoes in the extra scrap material.
I would have put more around my head, but at work they have this rule about not covering your face. The costume was a hit. I got a lot of appreciate stares, an offer to be on the evening news, and a lot of people touching me, which was on the weirder side.
I made this Mummy Spider Webbed Costume for my nephew, but he didn’t want to be a regular mummy so I made him a webbed mummy being eaten by spiders.
First I had him wear a white turtle neck and some long thermal pants. I cut a sheet into long strips. I started to wrap him up making sure to not make it so tight because he needed to take it off and on since we started a few days early. I hot glued it on the way to make sure the stripes stayed in place.
After I was done wrapping up the whole thing I took him outside where I randomly spray-painted the outfit with red paint to make it look like blood. I them applied spray adhesive and added the cotton web all over the body. I added a lot of different size spiders. Lastly we covered his head and painted his face white with touches of black.
My daughter wanted to be a mummy for Halloween so I got right to work searching for different homemade mummy costume ideas.
What we did was took a white turtle neck & white sweats (which we already had both) I took an old set of white sheets & a box of tea bags. The idea here is to make the cloths & sheets look old. Take hot water & 5 gallon buckets (we used 2, one for sheets & 1 for clothes), soak for several hours until you achieve color you would like. Then dry everything (OK, this is where it gets a bit tricky), shred sheets in strips & sew them onto shirt & pants & there you have it... a MUMMY!!!
This Homemade Mummy Halloween Costume was made from gaze and strips off cotton. I bought 2 meters of cotton (on sale) from Fabricland and tore it into strips. Next I found a white shirt and white stretchy pants and glue guned all the strips on to the clothes...adding a ribcage and back bone from the Dollar store as well as ants, spiders and bugs.
Next we painted the face like a mummy (adding sparkle to the face) after all, it's a girl mummy. And finally wrapped up her head. All in all took three hours to make the costume and one hour to dress up.
my son is 2 in this picture. I didnt want to dress him up in a plastic superhero costume, so I made this Homemade Baby Mummy Costume out of spooky fabric at the Halloween store. I started at his feet and wrapped him like a mummy.
He loved it and got tons of compliments. Super easy!
