DIY: GUMBALL MACHINE COSTUME

IMG_4714
Since Halloween fell on a Saturday this year, a bunch of my girlfriends and I decided to hit the streets of Capitol Hill! I needed a costume that was cute and sexy, yet fun at the same time. We thought about doing a group costume, but time was running out so it became a solo mission. I came across this gumball costume two years ago and it was always on my saved list, never having the right moment to make it. Well the time is NOW and I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome!!!

Materials:
A crap load of pompoms (I stuck to 2 sizes – small and medium)
Glue gun
Glue sticks
Red dress or a red skirt and a basic top (I purchased a $20 dress from Forever 21 knowing that I’ll ruin it by adding pompoms on it)
Felt (grey & black)
Scissors

You basically add pompom to the upper portion of the dress until your liking. This took me about two days cause my back started hurting. Afterwards, you cut out a square shape with the grey felt and 25c with the black and glue that on underneath the pompom. I also got an old headband and hair tie and added pompoms to it. And wala…you’re ready to start handing out some gumballs!
