Coolest Mrs. Butterworth and Waffle Couple Costume

Happy Waffleween!

I would definitely use the words ‘quirky’ and a bit ‘corny’ as a part of my personality traits. I just roll with it. Two things were certain this year: 1. I wanted to be some sort of a food item for Halloween this year. 2. This costume could NOT be store bought.

Following the suit of my uber creative, sew crafty mother, I decided I was going to make my own costume this year. I decided to be “Mrs. Butterworths Syrup”, and surely, I would need a waffle to complete the ‘look.’ Luckily, my boyfriend is very obliging.

I made my costume out of a rust colored duvet cover I had purchased at the Salvation army for $9. My (cap) hat is made from foam sheets you buy at Michaels, and my label is hand painted on a raw canvas. The waffle: is made from an old egg crate (the one that goes beneath your sheets on your mattress), and the bacon is also painted on raw canvas.

We marched in our Homemade Mrs. Butterworth and Wafffle Couple Costume in the West Village Halloween Parade 2010 last year. We felt like breakfast-themed superstars! It was amazing!!!

  1. I LOVE THIS! I have been looking everywhere on how to make a waffle costume! How did you make the waffle look so defined and real?? Did you cut out squares from the foam and then use spray paint for everything??


  2. Hi guys-

    Yes, I used an egg crate from my bed…then cut thin strips and hot glued it on top…then i masked with tape those strips…sprayed brown spray paint and then removed the tape. Thank you for the compliments!!! We had so much fun!

  3. hello do you mind teaching me how to make the waffle costume? step by step please… and do you think i can use the hard egg crate instead of the foam? thank you :)

  4. Helllo, please can I rent your waffle costume for my business. I’m OCD and would treat it kindly. Need it for 1 day.

    Please consider my request.
