Let’s get the party started!

So for this past Halloween, I came up with the idea to create a piñata costume! I thought I was a genius for coming up with such an idea only to find that it wasn’t as original as I thought! A website, Coolest Homemade Costumes has a great collection of pictures of homemade piñata costumes that you can refer to when creating your own. I knew I’d only need a few materials so I went for a walmart-run just a couple of hours before the festivities began.

I used a hot glue gun, tissue paper, scissors, and party hats. Instead of re-purposing a dress, I decided to use a pillowcase which I could easily take in to fit better. I cut the colorful strips to create a fringe (a stereo-type of all piñatas)!  I then glued these pieces to the pillowcase using the hot glue gun. I arranged the strips so that they helped to create an image of a dress, rather than a pillowcase, however you can arrange them however you’d like. [The process of cutting and gluing the strips took longer than I thought, so I’d recommend finding a friend! 

I followed the same process with the party hats, making sure to have some colorful strands hanging off of the top of each. … and TA-DA.. that was a piece of candy! (get the joke?)

This was such an easy costume to create and a fun one to wear! The Ke$ha song Tik Tok, is definitely your anthem when wearing this costume thanks to the lyrics: “The party don’t start till I walk in”. I received lots of compliments on it which was probably because I was giving out candy all night long. I definitely recommend this costume, even as a last minute costume for the day of.
