Well, let's see. As far as the cans, I have no idea. But the cupcakes...

I would use air dry clay, as it is light and then silicon for the frosting, like miniatures, though very blown up. It might get pricey depending on the brand of clay you use, though if that is most of the outfit, it wouldn't be bad. As far as attaching that, I'm at a loss, besides wondering how a hot glue gun or E6000 would work.

Hope I at least gave some food for thought. Happy crafting!

You could actually use real royal icing on top of a styrofoam sphere cut in half.  Check out the recipes they use for the cupcake bath bombs.  If it's only for a few days, it ought to hold up just fine, and look really real!  It's also pretty light stuff.  I'd go with the cupcakes, since you couldn't get the whipped cream to spray, and that's what makes that image.  It'd also be a lot easier!

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

Or you could just sew up a whole cupcake out of fabric, if you rather not work with clay, then attach it to the bikini top. That would  probably be somewhat easier and cheaper. You could even use some type of Styrofoam for the cupcake base, if you didn't want to make that fabric based, then paint it after. And you could even go ahead with the clay topping idea instead of making that out of fabric. 

Not sure if that's any help. Hope it works out though. Smiley


Just came across this:


It'd probably help out a lot.

You might look into expandable foam. It comes in a can- just spray out a large mound of it, let it dry and carve it to the shape you need. Be warned- it has a strong smell so use it outside if possible. My bro-in-law carved a pretty impressive werewolf mask out of this stuff. Good luck!

Thanks for all your responses. I will definitely see what I can find at my local craft store.
The expandable sounds like maybe I lightweight on to try.

i think this and the lady gaga meat dress (or maybe the caution tape and beer can rollers) are gonna be the most popular costumes this halloween. here what i would do..

you need:
- a blue bra that fits
- 2 6in diameter styrofoam donut shapes (in the floral arranging section of the craft store)
- 2 tan colored tagboard (or similar) strips (about 20 inches long)
- 2 white colored tagboard circles about 7.5 in diameter
- white 100% SILICON caulk (from the hardware store)
- seed beads or similar to use as sprinkles and something to use as a cherry (fimo ball? wood bead? whatever you can find)
- tape
- hot glue
(im using donut shapes as the base for the cupcake rather then half a sphere because you've gotta fit it over the cup of a real breast, flats on curves don't work so well, i think the hollow of the donut will make it sit better and more comfortably)

ok soo...

1. take the white tagboard circles, find the center and cut about a 1.5 inch (at the widest part) wedge out of it.
2. take the edges you just cut out of the circle together to make a shallow cone shape (the wider you cut the base of the wedge, the taller the cupcake top will be)
3. congregate the tan strips and glue them around the edge of the styrofoam donut shapes.
4. glue the cone on top
5. use the silicon caulk to "frost" the "cupcake" it will dry rubbery and will look just like whip cream. (do this outside because its toxic and be sure not to get it on anything you cant throw away as it isn't water soluble) make sure to frost it rather thinly because this stuff dries kinda heavy.
6. before your "frosting" dries decorate them as you like
7. hot glue it onto the cups of the bra!

ta da! easy and should be pretty light. Smiley

Maybe a crocheted cupcake, or one made out of felts.  Good luck in whatever you choose to do. =o)
