My son came up with this idea for a Homemade ICEE Costume 6 months ago, so I thought why not. Of course I started it the week before Halloween.
First we bought an ICEE so we had the cup to use as a pattern. I did free hand draw the entire costume on felt and then sewed on all the pieces. To keep the cup shape, I used hanger’s at the top and bottom of the costume. As for the actual ICEE itself, we used cotton stuffing and just stuffed it all around him. For the straw I used a pool noodle and hot glued ribbon around to make it look like a straw.
It does take a while to make, but it was so worth the smile on his face, and all the comments he got while trick or treating last night!
