As Halloween draws near, many of us are looking for inventive and unique costumes. One lesser known outfit is the Do-It-Yourself Wind-Up Doll Costume. This creative costume brings the cogs and wheels of a classic wind-up doll to life!
To start crafting this costume, pick out bright and colorful clothing. A vibrant dress, leggings, and plain shoes will create a great base for the costume. Next, you need to craft the most important part of the wind-up doll – the winding key! Cardboard, aluminum foil, silver paint, string, and glue make a great combination when creating a key. Paint the pieces silver, wrap with foil, and secure them together with glue and string.
Finish the costume by adding vintage-style flourishes to the dress and leggings. Gunmetal jewellery or other accents in a metallic hue will give the costume a unique, antique look.
Now that the look is complete, it’s time for the motion! On the day of Halloween, stay in character and wind yourself like a wind-up doll throughout the night. Let your movements be simple and jerky, fluttering between poses. Tip-tap shallowly when you walk and make as much noise as you can! The more noise, the more fun!
Get creative and enjoy showing off your Do-It-Yourself Wind-Up Doll Costume this Halloween. Have fun!
