Woohoo! It’s that time of the year again – Halloween! I actually almost forgot to write a DIY post on my costume this year, but I still have a few days before Halloween to get this in!
This year, we decided on doing….. The Incredibles! In particular, Mr and Mrs Incredible because we don’t have kids. Incredibles 2 just came out this summer, so I thought it would be quite fitting. As well, this costume was easy peasy! My soap costume last year took a long time so I’m glad this one was finished in less than a hour total.
As usual, no sewing is needed! I’m no sewing expert, so I want to show that you don’t necessarily need sewing experience to make a cheap and easy costume.
-Orange, black, yellow, white felt (multiple of each incase of cutting malfunction)
-Red shirt X2
-Hot glue gun
-Black gloves X2
-Elastic fabric (or a headband that you cut into one strip)
Instructions (for t-shirt):
1- Cut the coloured felt into The Incredibles logo.
2- Use hot glue gun to put the pieces of felt together.
3- Glue it onto the red t-shirt.
Instructions (for eye mask):
1- Cut the black felt into the eye mask shape.
2- Cut two holes for your eyes.
3- Glue the elastic headband.
Sooooo easy right! And cheap! Each piece of felt was around 60 cents at my local Michaels. Each shirt was around $7 maybe?
I also found the perfect leggings for Elastigirl on Amazon. I would recommend ordering these because they look cooler than just black pants! They were $21.00 CAD which isn’t that expensive and came quickly with Amazon prime.
Here is a photo of all the cheap, easy, no sewing DIY costumes over the years (minus the firefighter one because we did a group Pokemon costume that year which I wrote on instead)! Boyfriend is blurred out for privacy 🙂
Happy Halloween and happy costuming!
Edit: Here is a photo of our finished outfit!
