Coolest Paper Doll Costume and Baby Paper Doll Costume
Coolest Paper Doll Costume
Coolest Paper Doll Costume - back of dress (looks terrible but you get the idea)!
I love the creativity that goes into making a costume! And the satisfaction of saving money when doing so! The paper doll costumes I made for my baby girl and I cost a total of THREE dollars!!! I was inspired by a large cardboard box in our garage that was about to go into the recycling.
I had my husband trace my outline on the cardboard and then I cut it into that shape of a dress (with tabs). I found wallpaper leftover by the previous owners of our house and used that to cover the dress cutout. I used construction paper for the accents, and ribbon in the back to help attach the paper dress to myself. I tied the ribbon around my neck and around waist.
I wore my “undies” behind the dress. My “undies” were a tank top and a pair of pajama shorts I bought at a thrift store for $3! I altered the shorts a bit to make them look more like bloomers with bows and all! You could also wear a slip, or anything that gives the idea of “undies”.
I couldn’t resist and made a mini me costume for my baby girl. What a trouper! She let me put it on her for a great photo :) In the picture she is looking at me with a “WHAT are you doing mom?!” expression on her face! Haha
The Paper Doll Costume was a hit at the party we went to and we won for MOST ORIGINAL!
Cardboard Wallpaper Construction Paper Elmers Glue Ribbon Undershirt Shorts
My Sister and I always dress up together for Halloween and this year had a hard time coming up with something to go as. We finally decided on a Paper Dolls Couple Costume. We used card board for the dresses and traced our bodies to make the shape for the dress & for the tabs.
We then covered the cardboard cut out dress with wrapping paper and used construction paper to make the belt, collar, sleeves,and other decorative pieces. To attach the dress to ourselves we used white ribbon which we hot glued & stapled to the back like you would tie a bikini top on ( around the neck and chest).
To finish it off we bought white tights, wigs and bloomers, wore plain colored t-shirts and made our cheeks extra pink. The total amount spent was $13 on for entire costume.
Our Paper Doll costumes were a hit at the Halloween party we went to and it won us first place for best couple.
