Willy Wonka – We bought the pattern and sewed the jacket and vest. Used purple cotton fabric instead of velvet. Found shiny patterned fabric for the vest. Used Christmas ribbon with wired edges for the bowtie and used elastic to tie it on. Bought a plain white felt top hat and spray painted it brown. Bought the cane at the store.
Oompa Loompa – Found the brown turtle neck and tights at the store and used white fabric paint to make the stripes. Used brown and white yarn for the “pom-poms” on the shoes. Tied those to brown shoes. Hand sewed the pants using a free-hand pattern. Used white flannel and interfacing for the pants. Sewed the buttons to the pants and safety pinned the suspenders for adjustment. Bought the wig and styled it with bobby pins and styling solution and then spray painted it green. Used orange and white face paint.
And that was it, a Homemade Willy Wonka and Oompa Loompa Costume.
