My kids are well into Halloween now…it’s actually becoming more and more popular in Australia. When I saw a similar idea to this on Pinterest, I knew I just had to do it justice. I love me a ‘punny’ costume!
This was super easy to make & probably cost about $20 all up…thats cheaper than the costumes in the cheap shops #winning.
To replicate this costume for your little monster you will need:
Mini cereal boxes
Glue gun/strong glue
Write ‘Cereal Killer’ using the sharpie/fabric marker at the top of the shirt…we want everyone to ‘get’ the costume straight away.
Make a small slit in each cereal box & stab in a plastic knife (I reinforced the knives with a little glue).
Using your glue gun/strong glue, start sticking on the boxes to the shirt. Also adhere one to the headband…for added effect!
(You may want to put plastic under the shirt before you do this part). Drizzle your shirt & cereal boxes in the fake blood…this was surprisingly therapeutic lol. I made sure to put a little blood around the tips of the knives too. To dry the blood super fast, place the shirt outside in the sun.
I added a little face paint to my little man and spiked up his hair to go with the part.
He got some many comments whist we were trick or treating, a lot of people got a good laugh out of it too!
So there you have it, an easy, inexpensive and awesome costume idea. Let me know if you’re going to give this a go!
