Homemade Ms. Pac Man and Blinky the Ghost Couple Costume
We were invited to an 80's themed Halloween party and wanted to come up with something different. My boyfriend (the ghost) came up with the idea of a Homemade Ms. Pac Man and Blinky the Ghost Couple Costume. I wasn't exactly sure how to execute it.
We went to a craft supply store and found large rolls of foam in yellow and red. Cut them out in a circle for ms. Pac man and a rounded rectangle with zig zagz on the bottom for the ghost. Also used to the foam to create the eyes, bow, lips, etc.
We made 2 sides for each costume and reinforced them with card board so they would lay flat. Then cut straps which were lined with an old t-shirt to make sure they didn't stretch too much, then we connected each side of costume so all we had to do was put it on over our heads.
They were fairly inexpensive, about $35.00 both costumes combined. I wouldn't say they were uncomfortable but took up lots of room! Overall I think they turned out great and we got lots of compliments!

And our dogs as the ghosts
Our first Halloween party in our new house had to be memorable... So we came up with the perfect costumes! Mr. and Mrs. Pacman! Becoming the duo wasn't too hard. We used hula hoops, covered them in yellow felt, and added the facial features using felt cutouts. Yellow sweatshirts and black sweat-pants under the costumes kept us warm.
The decision to include our two dogs as the ghosts was a last minute one, but turned out to be super easy. We bought red and blue fabric, cut a hole near the top for their heads, glued on googly eyes, and shredded the edges. The dogs weren't too happy about it, but they looked adorable!
My tip for making this costume is buying hula hoops early! For some reason, hula hoops are not easy to find in the fall! I guess they're more of a summer item in the stores.
You're sure to get plently of compliments with this homemade Mr. and Mrs Pacman and Ghost dogs family costume! Who didn't love playing PacMan!

This Homemade Mr. and Mrs. Pacman Costume idea was one of my favorites and didn't actually take too long to make. It was an assembly of a lot of cardboard and duct tape really. Although, really not busy nightclub friendly! On a good note, we never paid cover anywhere because who is really going to charge Pacman cover?
