Halloween Costume: Rubik's Cube


This is by far one of the easiest costumes to make. All i needed were a box, black duct tape, construction paper in 5 colors, glue gun, scissors, a plate and a cutter.

     Start with a box. This one is 20×20×20.

     Tape the top together. Place a plate and trace the outside of the plate.

     Cut out the circle.

     With a ruler (didn't have one so used a measuring tape) divide the surface of the box. I had a measurement of 1.5 and 1 inch for spaces in between and 5 inches for the square. Cut out rectangles for the arms.

     Use duct tape to cover the spaces in between.

     Use one of the discarded squares and use that to trace squares on the construction paper.

     Use gluegun to stick the squares on the spaces.

     Do the same for all sides.:)

Halloween Costume: Cabbage Patch Kid

 So I've been really into stroller costumes lately because i liked the convenience of just pushing Hunter instead of carrying him. For this costume, i recycled the costume he wore for his last Trick or Treat.

     First remove all of the decorations from the box.

     Cover with yellow and green duct tape.

     Print a cabbage patch kids logo on sticker paper, cut and stick on the box.

     Add some more stickers/ decorations on the box. Tape green cloth on the inside part.


Halloween Costume: Rainbow Dash inspired dress


My daughter is a My Little Pony Fanatic. So when my husband said that the theme for their Halloween event  at the office is 80's, i decided we will go as toys. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a Rainbow Dash costume for River.

     First, you need soft tulle in blue, red, orange, yellow, green and purple.

     Next, measure your daughter's chest and from that measurement, subtract 2 inches to get the length of the garter you will use.

     Tie the garter into a hoop and place it around something sturdy. Here i used River's chair.

     Next get your tulle and cut it into strips 6 inches wide.

     Fold the tulle in half, loop it around the garter, insert the ends in the hole and tighten.

     Move to one side. Do the same thing for all the other tulle.

     Get a ribbon and loop it around the waistband.


      First, draw the shape of the wings you want on to a piece of paper.

     Cut out and then use to trace uniform shapes on the piece of felt.

     Do the same on the filler.

     Cut out a smaller wing and trace also on the felt and filler.

     Cut out the figures. For the filler, cut inside the line or slightly smaller than the shape.

     Get one of the wings. Glue on the filler. Take another wing and glue it on top.

     Do the same for all the wings.

     Take a blue sharpie or colored pen and trace an outline inside the wings

     Get a felt rectangle and glue the wings on it.
