Homemade Ms Pac Man and Ghost Halloween Couple Costume

This Homemade Ms Pac Man and Ghost Halloween Couple Costume was created for a “80’s icons” theme party that we were invited to. My fiance suggested PacMan, but since, technically, that was the 70s, we did Ms PacMan. I was the “blue” ghost that she’s about to gobble up. Seeing just the ghost, people didn’t get it, but once they saw her it all made sense.

Both of these costumes were made on the day of the party. It took us about seven hours to construct them out of cardboard. Large pieces of cardboard, hot glue, tape, and felt were our major ingredients. The cardboard for Ms PacMan was cut out with strategically placed tabs and glued together, reinforced with tape. It was very solid and sturdy.

For the ghost I just happened to find a box the proper size. The hard part was cutting the cardboard to give it the old school “dot matrix” look. Both pieces were covered in felt that was purchased at a craft store and secured on with hot glue. They were just big enough to grab attention, but easy enough to maneuver through the bars and clubs.

Unfortunately we didn’t make it out in time to enter any contests. I’m sure it was funny to witness us running across the street… Ms. PacMan chasing Ghost.

How did you get the cardboard to bend like that for the ghost?

Pac-Man May 22, 1980
by: Anonymous

Pac-Man was released in Japan on May 22, 1980. It was released in the US in October of 1980. So therefore it is an 80s character not 70s.

Coolest Pacman Halloween Costume 4

Ms. Pacman Halloween Costume

Ms. Pacman Halloween Costume

Well, I love the 80's. Last year I was a Rubik's Cube. I had to think of something to top last years costume. I wanted to think of something that everyone knows. So I decided on Ms. Pacman Halloween costume.

I started off with a hula hoop. I traced it onto foamcore (2 pieces for each side). Then I cut a triangle out of each piece for the mouth. I then covered the 2 pieces with yellow felt. Then, I cut out foamcore beams to attach the 2 sides together. Then, I covered the middle with yellow felt. I bought black and red felt for the eyes, mouth, mole and bow. I made the bow out of foamcore as well.

I put 2 ropes inside around the beams so the costume could rest on my shoulders. I bought yellow tights online and found red ruby high heels at the Halloween store. Then she was complete! Halloween was a blast.

I was the hit of the neighborhood! It didn't take me very long to make the costume. I just did a little bit every night.

what did you use to hide your face?

i did it!!!

So I just got done making this too but a pac-man version. if anyone else is making it you can find foam core at michaels in the framing department but you have to ask for it. and it was a lot harder for me than it sounded.

Amazing!!
by: Anonymous

do know how to make the ghost ones like inky, blinky etc..? It would really help cause we decided to be the Pacman and the ghost this year so yeah :D

Do you enclose the mouth?
by: Michelle

do you just dress in black so people can't see you inside?

HARD!!!
by: Anonymous

I am currently in the process of making this 'simple' costume and there seems to be nothing simple about it. I am thinking that the person that made this either had all the supplies or someone who was able to guide her in the right direction. I was unable to find big enough foam core, so I had to buy 4 sheets for each side. I am now having a hard time thinking of how I am going to attach this... so far I have spent about $65-$70 on this and still need to go get more supplies today... this is super cute but not worth the trouble!

Foam?

You can buy foam core at any custom framing shop. I bought mine for 8 something each for a 32x40 sheet.

For these homemade Pacman and Blinky costumes, I found those thin sheets of foam that come in large rolls and used that to fashion the bodies. I purchased tights, shirts and booties from discount store. Had the gloves from previous costume.
