Happy Halloween guys !
Here is a fun, easy and really cheap way to make yourself...or your kiddo sweet little Wonder Woman costume.
This costume was inpired by THIS picture on Pinterest - I just love it so much I had to make my own !
Here is what I used :
9 meters of blue tulle
1 sheet of white felt
Blue ribbon (measured to fit your waist line)
Wonder Woman T :
Plain black Walmart t-shirt
1 sheet of red felt
1 sheet of yellow felt
1 sheet of white felt
Added accessories :
Dollarama yellow head piece (Shown below)
2 sheets of yellow foam (For wrist bands)
Self adhesive strips ( For wrist bands)
Iron on glue tape
Total cost of costume :
19 dollars !
Warning : Don't be overwhelmed with my pictures.
This is such a quick and easy costume to make for any dress up occasion !
I'll start with the cape.
Parents : Remember this one for when your kiddos want to play dress up.
Here we go :
Start with an old t-shirt you don't mind cutting up.
Cut the sleeves off at the hem as well as down both sides of the hem.
Leaving it completely open on both sides.
Next step is cutting the whole front of the T off - leaving only the collar or the shirt.
Don't forget to leave yourself a bit of fabric around the collar - this will be taken care of with your iron on glue tape. It will give the cape a more finished look.
Final step - use your iron on glue tape (Found in the sewing section of Walmart) to iron down the collar, sides and bottom of your cape.
Here it is finished - I hot glued a white felt star to finish it's look.
As you can see the ends of the cape look smooth instead of just cut - this is from the iron on glue tape.
Next up : The little things
Here is a picture of the head piece I found for a buck.
Finished head piece and wrist bands :
The head piece is the same as shown above. I simply cut it to my desired shape and a hot glued a red felt star to it.
The wrist bands were simple as pie.
Cut your yellow foam sheet to fit your wrists - add your cut out red felt stars and hot glue adhesive stripes to their end for easy wear.
Next in line : Shirt
I drew, cut and glued the wonder woman symbol out of yellow and red felt right onto my plain black shirt.
Simple as that.
I have no pictures of the tutu making as I simply looked up "tutu making for dummies" and went from there, then added my own cut out white felt stars with the glue gun.
Here are the finished products !
The whole things took me just over an hour and a half to make - Great for last minute dress up parties !
Hope everyone enjoyed the quick tutorial - Have a safe and fun Halloween !
