Coolest Rainbow Brite Homemade Halloween Costume 14

Rainbow Brite Homemade Halloween Costume

I have always loved Rainbow Brite. I grew up watching the cartoons and had all the toys! I finally grew my hair out long enough to wear it in a long pony tail and was excited to make my own Rainbow Brite Homemade Halloween Costume, since most of the "Rainbow Brite" costumes in the stores were a bit, well, revealing and unrealistic!

I found an awesome base dress and pulled out some winter boots for the base of the boots, and then went and got a bunch of brightly colored table cloths for the overalls, belt, boots and sleeves and some white felt. Then I cut out some stars for the hands and feet, dots for the dress and printed out a rainbow for the belt.

Lastly, I cut the ribbon for my hair and drew the star on my cheek with Halloween makeup and well, I am really happy with how it turned out! I hope you like it too.

Homemade Rainbow Brite Halloween Costume

I loved Rainbow Brite when I was a child. I love sewing and have a two year old daughter and four year old son so I am always making stuff for this. Last year I decided to make my daughter a Homemade Rainbow Brite Halloween Costume. It was absolutely perfect.

The entire costume was handmade. I even hand drafted the pattern for the dress. We ended up going to a costume party at my son's school and my daughter won 1st place! I used fabric remnants for the dress and the white fur trim.

The rainbow on the front was hand sculpted out of clay and the leggings were originally women's socks that I converted to leg warmers. The bow was also made by me. I even handpainted a pair of white canvas shoes with red paint.

I made my own Homemade Rainbow Brite Costume. I drew Rainbow Brite on paper to get an idea of the design. I then picked out all the fabric. I know its not exactly like Rainbow Brite but i wanted something a little more sexy.

I chose to be Rainbow Brite because I have loved this cartoon since I was like 2 yrs old.
