Coolest Homemade Rainbow Brite and Twink Costumes

These Homemade Rainbow Brite and Twink Costumes were inspired by my love of the 1980’s and my childhood favorite cartoon show! My birthday is two days before Halloween and I turned 30 this year, so I knew it had to be a good one! I set out to make a Rainbow Brite costume that was a little less… “cheap” looking than the one sold on the internet at present. I also wanted to have my 21 month old son be Twink (her little side kick) but no such costume exists… so make them I must.

The materials for both costumes totaled around $50 and they were sewn over the course of one week. I used a simplicity pattern for the base of Rainbow’s costume but I lengthened the skirt and had to design the sleeves.

I still want to tweak the fit to make it a little more form fitting for me, but overall I am happy with how it turned out. Twink’s costume was super-fun to come up with…and I modeled it after one of those round pumpkin costumes. The shape was perfect so I just added a hood and lined it with fleece so it would be warm enough for trick or treating. Our rainbow tights/socks were purchased at various stores…the only “store-bought” aspect of the design aside from under clothes.

I hope you like it!
