COUPLES: Bowler and Bowling Pin Costumes

Jodi and Meaningful Mama is a costume genius! (You can see her sweet Candy Land family costumes here.) Here’s what Jodi said, “I was really pregnant when I came up with this idea. I was really hoping I would make it to Halloween just so I could wear the costume! I made the bowling pin out of felt. I cut out the shape of the pin, sewed on the red stripes and sewed the two pieces together and cut out holes for my belly and face. I used wire hangers taken apart to make the structure stand tall.” Oh and of course she added 3 little felt dots to her bowling ball belly!

Here’s what you need to make the DIY game boy oneisie:

  • white onesie
  • sheets of felt
  • fabric glue
  • fabric scissors
  • a brown lunch sack (or something else to slide inside for the onesie while gluing)

Word to the wise, let the fabric glue dry completely! And don’t expect this onesie costume to be washable. If you’re using fabric glue, this onesie will only last the night. Sewing it all done would be easy and make the costume last a whole heck of a lot longer. First cut out all of your pieces from the felt.

Then, stick your lunch sack inside of the onesie and start gluing. It’s that easy, y’all! Waiting for the Game Boy onesie to dry is the hardest part!DIY Game boy costume
