How to Make a Baby New Year Costume


Whether you're dressing up for New Year's Eve, Halloween or a random costume party, a Baby New Year costume is a fun and simple choice. Traditionally, Baby New Year personifies the beginning of a new calendar year, and is mentored by Father Time. With a few key elements, you can create your own Baby New Year Costume that is both traditional and adds some fun new twists.

Things You'll Need

  • Wide ribbon or sash
  • Black top hat
  • White cloth wrap or diaper
  • Noisemaker, champagne bottle or martini glass
  • Drape a wide ribbon or sash, similar to the ones worn by beauty pageant contestants, diagonally across your chest. The sash should read, "Happy New Year," and include the new year's date.

  • Swathe yourself in white cloth around your hips or an actual diaper. Pin with a few baby blue safety pins for added effect.

  • Carry a festive New Year's accessory in your hand, such as a martini glass, a bottle of champagne or a noisemaker.

  • Wear an old-fashioned black top hat on your head, like the one worn by Frosty the Snowman and the Monopoly Man.

Tips & Warnings

  • For added touches, wear a bow tie around your neck or tie helium balloons to your wrists.
  • Get someone to accompany you as "Father Time" for the complete effect. Encourage a friend to dress up with a long beard, cloak and clock on a string.
  • This costume works well for actual babies and bald men. Women can also pull off this costume with a short toga wrap around their chest.
