Original Deviled Egg Halloween Costume
I was looking for something unique but yet would help keep my daughter warm on a cold Halloween night ! I wanted something easy for her to get in and out of too. With out a ton of makeup and accessories. So I saw a devil egg somewhere and I knew I had to make THAT ! I went to Walmart to the fabric section, bought some white fleece and yellow fleece. I went home found some old foam I had laying around from a previous project and went to work on this original Deviled Egg Halloween costume!
First I cut the foam in the shape of a fried egg ( or as best I could ! ) Then I laid out the white so that it would make a cover over the white. I cut it out a few inches bigger then the foam piece and sewed it together insides together. I left the bottom open. Then I gently pushed the foam into the “egg” covering. Then I went to work on the yolk. I grabbed some stuffing out of my stash pile ( I tend to have stuff like this on hand for just such emergencies ! ). I cut the yolk.. well in yolk shape lol and hand sewed it on. I left a small space, put the stuffing in, arranging it to look round a plump. Then closed it up. I finished sewing the bottom of the egg.
Then I needed to figure out how she was going to wear it ! Hmmmmm. So I cut another peice of white and started to make a back so she could wear it like a a shirt. That didnt work out as well it was just to tight and didnt fit right. Though I’m sure if someone is a better sewer them myself you could make it work! So I got impatient and just cut that right up the center. I added some straps to the back peices and when she slipped her arms in the holes I just tied the back up ! It worked on so many levels. She could tighten the ties and wear it to an indoor party or loosen the ties and wear it over a snow suit.
I added some devil horns, the pitchfork and sewed a tail onto the back and WA’ALA a devil egg !
