ADULTS: Handmade pinata costume

Catherine turned herself into a living pinata for Halloween! She crafted up the handmade pinata costume out of a nude American Apparel dress and used hot glue to glue down strips of crepe paper to her dress. She did 3 rows of each color. The donkey tail is just made by tying a few long pieces in a knot and safety pinning it to her dress. To see how to make the ears and for the full pinata tutorial check out Rabbit food for my bunny teeth.

KIDS: DIY Zoltar costume

The DIY Zoltar costume would be a great kid or adult costume! Sadly, I bet a lot of kids don’t remember Zoltar! I remember it from the movie, Big. This is another really awesome handmade costume by Arlene (who also made this amazing DIY airplane costume). She used the same technique with cardboard and butcher paper and used duct tape, staples, and a glue gun to adhere the pieces to one another. I love that her DIY Zoltar costume even has a paper fortunes card coming out of the slot! (Fun fact: Zoltar had 16 spoken fortunes and 23 paper fortunes!)
