Coolest Frozen Head in Fridge Homemade Costume

The frozen head in fridge costume started out as a water heater box. I cut it down the left side to make the “doors” then placed a piece of cardboard in the bottom of the “freezer” section that rested on my daughters head.

We spray-painted the entire thing white and placed bent cardboard on the freezer and fridge part to look like handles. I had my youngest daughter draw a picture for the front, and placed little foam letters on the doors to look like a little kid had been playing there.

We also put empty cereal boxes on the top with Velcro so they could be removed when the costume wasn’t being worn.

After applying some grayish paint and a nice long makeup cut along my daughters neck, we teased her hair and in she went. I also placed an empty ice tray in the freezer with Velcro and an empty ice cream tub in to catch hold the candy since she didn’t have arms available to her.

This costume got a lot of attention. People would make us wait on their porch so they could take a picture and we had cars stopping in the street to look and ask questions.

I still have the fridge in the basement, I couldn’t bring myself to dispose of it.

  4. I love to make my kids’ (and my own!) costumes, but this year my big 7 year old decided he was too cool to wear a homemade costume…until he saw this one! Now he can’t wait for me to make it for him, so thanks for the fantastic idea!

  5. I have seen your costume and think that it would give me the chills to see what people would say to see me in it. You say that you still have it. Would you like to sell it?

  6. I would like to thank everyone that posted comments about the fridge costume. It was so much fun to make! Unfortunately I no longer have the costume, it has gone on to bigger and better things. :) This year we are making a headless woman and Goth Barbie costumes…even though they will be really good, they wont measure up to this one in our eyes. Thanks again!

  24. We used this as a idea for our own costume. My son won 2 local contests with it. It was a huge hit even put in the papers…it was great we had a blast with it. and so easy to do

  25. hi i just love your costume my son wants it he said “he would want you as his costume specialist” and he is only 5 years old.

  26. Best costume ever. I did this for my son yesterday and it was a hit. The only difference was I did arm holes, added more body parts, and included a missing poster on the front with his picture.
