Wyatt of course was Wreck-it Ralph, Of course!
His costume was the cheapest because I didn’t get the hands. $4 for clothes
Costume Cost: $2 for hammer, hat, belt & holder + $2 for his shirt = $4 Total
Assembly: Hammer spray painted gold. Hat had another logo, but with some felt & hot glue its the perfect Fix-It Felix Hat! Clothes were simple to find.
He’s got that honey glow somethin awful!
Evee made an awesome Candlehead!
She kept changing her mind on which racer she wanted to be. But when she found out that she could have a cupcake on her hat…then she was sold!
Costume cost: $1 – hat, $1 – green hair, $5 – clothes = $7 total
Assembly: The hat came from the dollar store, I spray painted it with a mat white paint, then painted craft paint on it. Luckily I had a random plastic toy cupcake that I cut and added a candle with hot glue. Wig was more difficult, we found that at the dollar store. We cut the length down and used the cut part to make bangs. You can make anything with HOT GLUE!
Cora, we weren’t sure what would be good for her. But Jase thought Sour Bill would be awesome! And she fit the part quite perfectly!
Costume Cost: $1 beanie, $2 shirt, $1 socks = $4 total.
Rykel was an awesomeTaffyta!
With a quick haircut and awesome clothes, BOOM, she was Taffyta!
Costume cost: $1 – Hat, $1 – Paint, $5 – clothes
= $7 total
Assembly: hat was found at DI, sprayed with white & also painted with craft paint. With some cardboard cutouts and spray glitter, BOOM…perfect hat. She does have striped leggings too, but you can’t see them. I used an old shirt of mine, cut the arms off and painted them with blue tape and boom! Perfect leggings. Clothes from DI also.
Rykel is always an awesome sport, she is happy with any character and really gets into it also!
Klai made a perfect Venelope!
Her costume was the quite easy compared to everyone else.
Costume Cost: $5 – jacket, $1 – Paint, $2 – skirt = $8 total
Assembly: Clothes were really key in all the costumes. Her leggings I got free from someone, I used scotch tape to tape them off and painted them. Craft paint made the leggings stiff…but oh well! Hoody from DI also, added some yard. Twizzler hair twisty is made out of red fabric and pipe cleaners.
Assembly: My costume probably took the most work…maybe tied with Zangief. The cardboard cutting, taping, spraying and stapling took a full day…off & on. But it was fun!
Jase had many characters to choose, but he couldn’t resist Zangief!
Finding some clothes I could dye to be tan, a spraypainted belt with foam balls attached, old boots painted red & gold, some fake fur & of course a haircut. BOOM…Jase was ready.
Costume cost: $3 – spray paint, $2 – fabric dye, $8 – fake hair (more than I’d normally spend), $4 – Belt & foam balls = $17 total (most expensive costume yet).
Assembly: cut foam balls in half & spray them gold with belt.
Oh. My. Gosh. Thanks for the DIY explanations! I actually did wonder how much you spent this year! Good job, Rach!
