For months I have been planning my
. I was actually inspired when I did Evee’s Princess party & I made the Maleficent dragon for her Pinata, see
I love to do things cheap
& making things with my hands is super fun!
Masking Tape (maybe 2 rolls)
Paper Mache Materials : 1/3 cup flour, 2/3 cup flour, shredded newspaper, & balloon.
Hot Glue & Glue Gun
Black Spray Paint
1 yard of Black material (shiny or vinyl leather)
as if I would a
. I blew up a balloon & began doing the paper mache layers. I followed this
, she’s quite good.
I shaped horns out of newspaper & tape….lots of tape. Jase helped in this department, apparently I don’t know how to shape horns very well.
Using HOT glue I added a little bit of decoration to the head piece. I also added hot glue to the ends of the horns.
Spray paint black.
I added fabric to the sides of the headpiece. I left it to hang a bit, so I can tuck my hair up in it & pin it in back.
I think it turned out well.
What do you think?
Old black robe or Cap & Gown from D.I. or Black Sheet
Long Black Dress
Instructions: I altered the cap & Gown. I cut off the collar & slit open the arm slots. I then sewed the edge of the collar under to make a more simple collar hem. I sewed the arm slots just at where the hands would be, leaving the material draping down.
I wore a straight black dress underneath.
Cut fabric (used from headpiece) slightly bigger than cardboard.
Hot glue down.
Tuck shoulder accents into the collar of cape & secure with safety pins!
Wrapping Paper Tube, maybe 2 if small
Plastic easter egg
Acrylic paint: blue, orange, green, yellow
Old Brown Tights (hot glue & gun) OR brown spray paint
Bend to shape paper tube to resemble a wood staff. Tape bent areas to be more secure.
Wrap newspaper around tube to give it texture & thickness, tape securely.
Paint Easter Egg Blue. Then add different colors for accents
Now Your whole costume is complete!
