When I think of Op-shops (thrift stores) I think of the smell of moth balls with numerous fashion fails throughout the decades . I know this isn’t sewn by me but I couldn’t pass off this little surprise outfit that was extremely cheap (under $10!!!) and is definitely a great costume. Its technically a professional chefs uniform but for a very slim person, it came with everything: the hat, the shirt, the pants and the apron. The apron is a little stained but i think thats good it looks like they are actually a chef, it adds to the look. I know on a two year old adult sized clothing would be massive on the child, she would be swimming in the clothes. But really the fact that this is a chefs outfit, why not? It would add to the fun.
As you can see she really got into character……….
Considering I put the spawn in a chefs costume I wanted to join in as something to match up with her. So instead of just getting a larger chefs costume I figured I could dress up as food. So I went with the most simple costume……A COOKIE!!! I know there are many different ways to make a cookie costume but I wanted to keep it simple and cheap to make.
What You Need:
2x large brown or cream colour card (I used cream)
Scissors or Knife
1x A3 Paper (any colour)
1x Brown Marker
What you do:
- Outline the round cookie shape on both of the Cream card and cut out- it doesn’t have to be a perfect circle. I made mine look lumpy so it looked a bit ore like a cookie
- Draw some chocolate chips with your marker on the cream card, any shapes would be fine
- Cut the A3 paper in half (long ways) and glue the strips onto the cookie cutout – these will be what holds it up
- Put it on and strut your stuff you hot cookie you
Yes I’m aware that this would look a little ghetto…..but at least its an affordable costume to rock and have fun making – also; I know I could have dressed as the chef but I wanted the fun costume to go to the little one.
