I had great intentions this halloween to make another homemade costume but could not find a yellow rain jacket or rain boots (you'll just have to wait and see who she'll be next year)! So, we decided to revamp last year's costume--
a hot fudge sundae
Imagine, if you will, a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a large drizzle of hot chocolate (which pools at the bottom of the bowl) along with whip cream and a cherry on top!
The hot fudge drizzle is an old shirt of mine that I took in and cut to create "drizzles." Although you can't see it, I weighted the drizzles with some brown beads so the material wouldn't curl up. The tutu is about as simple to make as they come- I used this tutorial. The whip cream hair clip is my own creation- I made a tube of white material, stuffed the front part of it with batting and curled it around itself (like a snake) to create the whip cream. I used red felt and a little brown ribbon for the cherry. Really easy. Paired with a white onesie and brown pants, this costume cost me about $5.00 (for the beads and tulle).
Ever seen a hot fudge sundae go down a slide-- well, now you have!
