DIY: Katy Perry's CANDYLAND Costume
Who doesn't love Katy Perry?? I often get told I resemble her which is a huge compliment seeing as she is beautiful, but I honestly don't see it. Nevertheless I'll take the compliment! This was my inspiration for this year's Halloween costume.
For the costume I used a white corset I had in my costume bin and headed off to Joann's for my silky/ satin fabric to make all the fun candy creations that go on top of the corset and the skirt. I also bought some glitter, felt, and pastel beads to hand sew onto the corset for extra detailing. For the cotton candy I just used cotton balls which I lightly pulled apart to make look more fluffy.
For the wig, I headed to Amazon and found this gem which included the head band :)
For make up, she had a super glittery eye shadow which is pretty hard to find. Instead I got straight up fine grade glitter and some eyelash glue and a old make up brush and dabbed it on.
This is a fun project to tackle, because it requires your creative juices to flow!
Pastel colored Fabric (1/4 yd each)
Light pink tights
Cotton balls or batting
For the skirt, follow
For the candy corset I made each one individually and then hand sewed it on, so it is hard to explain how to make each of them, this is where you get to be creative. I also hand sewed on little pastel beads to give it a little more "bling".
