1  Candyland! in Halloween Costumes by crazygirlie406 on: November 09, 2009 09:39:34 AM
My friends & I planned on doing a Candyland theme for Halloween this year, for about a year. We made our costumes basically from scratch out of already owned articles of clothing, cheap, or borrowed.

I went as Princess Lolli!:: I found a yellow dress at Goodwill. I shortened the length & scalloped the bottom hem. I also lowered the neckline & cut off the ugly sleeves & shoulder pads. For the lollipops, I took fat quarters & cut 2 circles out of each one (4 colors, 8 circles total) & sewed them up so they would sinch. My aunt calls these yo-yo's. Then I glued the yo-yo's to painted popsicle sticks & stuck them to my dress! For my crown, I painted a stitching hoop yellow, & glued lollipop tree ornaments to it. My necklace & earrings were also tree ornaments that I made into the jewelry. I painted the wig purple & bought me some red flats & OUT GAME PRINCESS LOLLI!


My boyfriend went as King Kandy. He has the most intense costume of them all. I got a red long sleeve shirt & the gold skirt at Goodwill. I then cut white strips of fabric out of an old sheet for his skirt. I cut 8 circles out of the sheet & made yo-yo's. Then I just glued red pom-poms in each yo-yo hole. For his shirt, I just used gold glittery puffy paint on this shirt, to make it look like the characters shield. I found bubble wrap, that I painted purple & attached those to his forearms- as grapes. The shoulders were just fabric from the sheet, sewed & stuff & red duct taped. His hat & top of the septor were made of fabric, metal cookie containers & strofoam rings!
     Crown: Ring was wrapped in duct tape then put on the bottom of a plastic basket which I painted brown. Then I glued white fabric from the sheet (painted gold) to it & stuffed it with stuffing. I then glued on white fur to make it look like the frosting. Added some pom-pom's.
     Septor: Basically the same as the crown, except I did actually use a brown tin cookie can. I attached it to a closet dowl that I painted white & wrapped with duct tape.
Then he just wore white tights & his own shoes. & I borrowed the sequin fabric from my cousin for his cape! His costume had the most pieces & the most glue involved!
King Kandy w/ Princess Lolli::


Queen Frostine used an old prom dress & added white fur to make snow. Then she stuff the underneath with fabric & tulle. She used a wooden dowel as her septor & covered it in glitter & used a tree ornament on top. She bought the crown but added a few pieces. She bought the gloves & the wig, which she painted blue.


The boy: we just bought him a shirt at Goodwill & borrowed some overalls!
Gloppy: we found a sweet brown suit at Goodwill & then painted the dots on the tie.
Plumpy: he wore his own shorts, socks & his own shirt. I painted the suspenders green.
Ms. Mint: She added pink puffy paint to an already stripped shirt. Bought the tights & the tutus. The shoes, we added glitter & the laces. & then we just bought the sequin trim & used those as suspenders.

2  Wizard of Oz costumes in Halloween Costumes by crazygirlie406 on: November 25, 2008 08:45:24 AM
My friends & I made our costumes this year. Wizard of Oz theme. (We did have someone as the TinMan, Glinda, & Bad Witch, but they all backed out)  And in the pictures, were strutting down the street  Cheesy

Dorothy (ME):
I found a blue/white checkered table cloth at Goodwill for $1.99. Then I went to JoAnn's & bought a pattern, eyelets, ribbon & white tulle. The pattern wasn't a Dorothy pattern, it was just a generic pattern that I used to make the skirt & vest. I bought 6 yards of tulle.   I cut out the fabric using the pattern. Then I sewed together the skirt & vest. (I did have to take in the vest a little bit because it was big). I used the skirt to make the tulle, instead of using the pattern like it had asked for. I made the eyelets in the vest, which was so easy & then used the blue ribbon to tie up the vest.   I borrowed the basket from my Aunt which was perfect for Toto (my own stuffed animal) & my wallet. I added extra fabric to make bows for the basket & my hair.   I bought white tights at Target (a lot cheaper then from a Halloween store) & added more extra fabric to those.   I bought the tank top, that was the most expensive thing!  The shoes were an old white pair of heels that were really beat up & I would never wear again. So I painted them red & added TONS of glitter (the pic doesn't show them that glittery).


Scarecrow:
Britney found these overalls at Goodwill. She cut them up so she could add the tulle underneth. She also got the SHIRT & HAT at Goodwill too. She bought 12 yards of tulle as well, but Green, Orange, Purple, & Pink to match the shirt. She glued the tulle to the overalls instead of sewing them. Glued straw everywhere. & glued on extra red fabric randomly as patches. The tank top & Shoes were her own.


Lion:
Hillary's costume was originally going to be made differently. She bought velvet fabric for the skirt as well as Brown & Gold tulle to put underneath it. Originally, she had found a tan leotard to wear as the top, but changed her mind because she didn't like how it fit. She ended up finding a cute brown corset for cheap, she could always wear again. She also ended up NOT adding the tulle under the skirt, which turned out okay. I used extra velvet to wrap around an old Devil's tail, added some of the brown & gold tulle on the end & she now had herself a tail! I sewed some ears out of the velvet, stuff them & glued them to brown barrettes she bought. Then she bought leg warmers & wore her own shoes & she was done!
