I got this One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater Costume idea from the song, obviously. It was a hit, although some people didn’t know what it was which boggled my mind.
I bought the dress from Forever 21, but any purple dress, or purple attire will work for this. I also purchased purple fishnet stockings from there just to keep warm!
The horn and eyeball are styrofoam cone and ball from Joann Fabrics. I wrapped the cone in purple felt and hot glued it to the cone. I then cut black felt to resemble eye lashes and hot glued them to the eye. I also adhered a “googly” eye to the front of the ball, and painted the back of it black.
I bought a pair of butterfly-like wings (but any type would work… maybe something more like bat wings?) and used purple acrylic paint to give it a twist and make it work better with the costume.
The tail was made out of purple shag material. I cut out a pattern that looked like a dragons’ tail over something that would be an animal tail because I thought it looked more interesting. I stuffed it and just attached it to my dress with large safety pins (the perks of being a college student haha!)
*For make up I bought purple and black fake eyelashes and used purple eyeshadow. Nothing too crazy since the costume pretty much spoke for itself.
Hope you enjoy the One Eyed One Horned Flying Purple People Eater Costume! I had a lot of fun making it and got a lot of compliments on it as well.
