Coolest Homemade Shrimp Nigiri Sushi Roll Creative Halloween Costume

I decided I wanted to dress up as sushi for Halloween this year. I used packing peanuts and hot glue gunned them onto a shirt to make the rice. I cut and spray painted a foam mattress pad for the shrimp. The seaweed wrap was ribbon and the ginger and wasabi headpiece was made out of felt and glued onto a headband wrap. It was comfortable, warm, and a great conversation starter.

Happy Halloween!!

  1. Hi,
    i love your costume and im not all that crafty. So i want to ask you if it’s for sale? If it’s not it’s o.k. with me.

  2. Glad you like the costume Megan! Unfortunately, I threw it away after Halloween. It was very easy and I’d be happy to provide you with more detailed directions if you need.

  3. To make the shrimp part, I just bought a twin sized matress pad from Walmart (I think it was like $9). It was actually already textured with the wavy lines which helped. I drew the shrimp shape on the back and cut it out with scissors. The pad was white to begin with, which was perfect since shrimp is orangy and white. I bought a can of orange spray paint. I cut out a peice of posterboard the width of the pad that was waved at the top to create a shield when painting. This allowed me to keep some areas almost completely white and then ombre (by just using more or less paint coverage) into a completely orange section. This is part is kind of hard to explain, but hopefully you can understand what I’m saying by looking at the shrimp piece and visually seeing where there is a white section, it fades into orange section, it fades back into white, and so on through the whole shrimp piece. I printed out an image of a shrimp to reference while I painted. That helped too.
    Hope this gives you the info you needed and sorry for the posting delay. Happy Halloween!
