You don’t have to learn to sew or knit to make gorgeous Halloween costumes from duct tape. Kids and adults alike can enjoy the process, and there’s no limit to the costume designs you can make. There are so many colors of duct tape out there that you can make sexy Halloween costumes, matching couples costumes, kid’s costumes and even pet costumes. Best of all, you can make your costume accessories from duct tape too, like swords, crowns, wands, shields or matching Halloween costume shoes and boots. Really, there’s no easier or cheaper way to make gorgeous Halloween costumes than with the endless hues of duct tape waiting to entice your imagination. So let’s get started.
Make Sexy Halloween Costumes from Duct Tape
Gold, silver or shiny black duct tape can turn your bathing suit or tennis outfit into a sexy Halloween costume with matching sexy boots and jewelry. Begin by choosing a tight fitting, super sexy outfit that you don’t mind turning into a Halloween costume. Coat the outfit with strips of duct tape until every part is covered. Turn a bathing suit top into a gold bra, or a tight tank top into a shimmering black camisole.
Get inventive and add patterns to your sexy Halloween costume using different colored duct tape. Create X’s from red duct tape and glue them in a vertical line on the front of your shimmering black top. Suddenly your sexy Halloween costume will look like a corset. Stick silver duct tape in circles around the string of your bathing suit top to create metal rings. Coat your jeans in shimmering black duct tape and cut the shapes of lightning bolts out of red duct tape to glue over your back pockets. The sky’s the limit… so make the gorgeous sexy Halloween costumes of your dreams.
And, of course, don’t forget to make sexy Halloween costume boots or shoes. Just find an old pair of footwear and coat it in the same gold, silver or shimmering black duct tape. Repeat the pattern of X’s or the silver rings if you like. And don’t forget to wear fishnet stockings for extra zest.
As to duct tape jewelry, you can make giant duct tape earrings with a matching necklace, or a duct tape halo hovering over your wickedly sexy head. And if you wear a gorgeous Halloween costume wig, you can scatter gold duct tape flowers through its locks.
Make Couples Halloween Costumes from Duct Tape
Everything you did to make sexy Halloween costumes from duct tape you can turn into a matching set for couples Halloween costumes. Begin by each finding something stunning to wear, then duct tape the outfits in matching colors, or, better yet, make his costume all black with red highlights, and her costume all red with black highlights.
Still want more ideas? Make couples Halloween costumes that look like mirror (opposite) images. Duct tape the front of his Halloween costume all in black but the back all in white. Then reverse the order for her Halloween costume.
Or make the links between the couples Halloween costumes more exquisite. Duct tape the pattern of a broken heart on the chest of his Halloween costume, and the pattern of a chisel and hammer on her costume.
Don’t forget to link the costumes through accessories too. Tie yourselves together with duct tape handcuffs. Or hang duct tape keys from each other’s necks with parallel locks. Truly making Halloween costumes from duct tape gives you endless possibilities.
Make Kids Halloween Costumes from Duct Tape
What could be more fun than to let kids make their own Halloween costumes from duct tape. Start with an old pair of pajamas, then have kids design the right colors for their costume. Coat the pajamas in camouflage duct tape to create a soldier or hunter costume. Choose all gold duct tape to create a gold statue costume. Choose hot pink for a gorgeous girl’s costume. Or metal gray for a boy’s superhero costume.
And kids will love to duct tape their old slippers too. After all, how cool is that? Making your own Halloween costume shoes. Help kids design their Halloween costume in principal, but then let their imaginations take over with duct tape as their artistic expression.
Make Pet Halloween Costumes from Duct Tape
Yes, even your pets can dress with gorgeous Halloween costumes made of duct tape. Start with an old dog coat or sweater, or a cheap one from the closeout basket in the pet store. Duct tape the dog outfit to coat it completely. Choose bright red for a devil pet costume, all white for an angle, all gold for a queen.
And don’t forget to make duct tape accessories. Coat craft wire in white duct tape to make angel wings for a pet costume. Or shape the wire into the frame of a cape then spread duct tape between the wires to create a cape that stands up as if blown by the wind. And don’t miss out on cutting a crown out of cardboard and coating it in gold.
Best of all, if you have old dog booties, go all out and duct tape them to match the pet Halloween costume-red boots for a superhero dog or white boots for a princess.
Make Halloween Costume Accessories from Duct Tape
Because duct tape is so pliable and cheap, you can basically coat anything you want in it and use as much duct tape as you feel like. Start with stiff cardboard to cut out the design you want, like a sword, shield, jewelry or scepter. Then coat the cardboard with the fitting duct tape, metal color for arms and gold for jewels.
Remember that duct tape costume accessories can defy gravity. Just sticking craft wire under the duct tape will give you the ability to shape fabric and make it stand up. Make upright angle wings, a fluttering cape, a hat that’s just about to get blown away, or a coat that insists on flapping open.
Duct tape is cheap and so easy to use. Make any gorgeous Halloween costume that strikes your fancy. Duct tape is great for last minute costumes or unique costumes you’ll find nowhere else. So enough reading-it’s time to get some duct tape in your life. Go to your local craft store to choose your colors, or buy a rainbow of duct tape online.
