Coolest Deviled Egg Homemade Costume

We loved the deviled egg pun and thought it would be a cute costume! We made this costume by paper macheing the egg on top of a 24″balloon that we bought at a party store.

We used 2 parts Elmer’s glue to 1 part water and cut up strips of a old phone book. We did 4 layers and when it was done we painted it with interior flat white latex paint about 3 coats.

Then we cut out the arm leg and neck holes. We cut the neck holes jagged and then rounded them off so they weren’t sharp! The rest are purchased from the same party store a red cape, a red unitard, devil horns and a pitch fork. we also added the classic old fashioned devil mustache and goatee face paint.

Hint – Our daughter Hated putting it on over her head so we ended up cutting it open up the back so she put it on like a smock and then we used white gaffers tape to hold the back closed all hidden by the cape.

  1. We just had our second daughter and someone gave us a chicken costume. I would LOVE to have the oldest one be an egg and my newborn to be the chicken. Love this idea, just don’t know if I can make it!

  2. I have looked everywhere looking for a 24 inch balloon and there are no where to be found I got a 30 in balloon I just hope it looks as good!

  3. We used the same 24 in. balloon, glue and water mache, and newspaper strips for the paper. We did 5 coats and it was no where near enough. It is a very fragile costume and after all that, our 3 year old wouldn’t go anywhere near it. We planned on having one child be the dinosaur and one be the egg, but he refused. We finally muscled him into it after much coaxing and candy, but he freaked…and he’s normally not afraid of much. If you plan on doing it for a preschooler or toddler, I hope you have better luck than we did! (or a back-up paleontologist costume like we made in a day!)

  4. I would like to thank the one who shared this picture.

    We were able to replicate the costume with your instructions….

    Thanks and more power


  5. I know I’m getting her a little late but. Our 2 year old son is obsessed with eggs so that’s what we want him to be for Halloween- it’s September 26 do we have enough time for all the work????
