Costumes are fun and it’s so much easier to buy enough fabric to come up with a costume for a doll than it is for yourself. But what is your Blythe going to go as this year? I’ve come up with a list of ideas of costumes that should be relatively inexpensive and easy to do, since you do only have 11 more days to figure out costumes for your dolls!
- Ghost – use tissue paper or a paper towel, drape accordingly and cut out holes for eyes.
- Robot – use tin foil to make a dress/outfit, remember to include a tin foil hat.
- Witch – use a plain black dress already owned, pair with a black construction paper witch’s hat.
- Card Guard (from Alice In Wonderland) – use two playing cards, tape the edges together.
- Alien – use green cellophane and wrap it around, be sure to use green pipe cleaner to fashion a headband with antennae.
- Ancient Roman – use a scrap piece of white fabric to twist and drape into a toga, use a brown pipe cleaner to make a ring to fit on top of your doll’s head, tape/glue on small leaves (real, fake, paper leaves).
- Black Cat – dress in all black, use a curved pipe cleaner wrapped around the waist as a tail, cut out black triangles from construction paper, attach to a headband.
- Vampire – use little white triangle points a teeth, wear a black cape and carry around a Re-Ment goblet (with fake blood inside!)
- Zombie – wear ripped and dirt-stained clothing, drool a little bit, have unkempt hair.
- Another Stock Blythe – steal someone’s clothing, carry your Blythe around in the stock box of the clothing’s original owner.
