I was so tired of finding nothing but trampy costumes for women. I wanted something cute and creative. So I created this Smurfette costume for our Halloween party last year. I was a huge fan of the Smurfs growing up and thought this would be fun to create.
I made the hat out of fleece. I found face paint to match the blue tights and body suit. The white dress, which was hard to find in October, was perfect.
If creating this costume the key is to plan ahead. All of the elements can be found online for relatively cheap. The tights were found at welovecolors.com and the white dress was found at American Apparel.
I made the hat from supplies at the local fabric shop and found the wig at a local wig shop. The face paint was Ben Nye and can be purchased at many online retailers. Make sure to get the sealer when using any face paint. My cheeks and nose were bare by the end of the long night.
This costume was a big hit. People are still talking about it almost a year after. I can’t wait to submit this year’s costume!
