How to Make a Pickle Costume

Save

Food costumes such as ice cream, pizza and hamburgers add a humorous touch to celebrations and Halloween parties. The pickle, in particular, is a tasty treat that makes for a fun, entertaining costume if designed and executed properly. Whether you are making it for a middle-aged man or a little girl, it's fairly easy to assemble and requires very few materials.

Things You'll Need

  • Tape measure
  • 2 to 3 yards of dark green felt
  • 12-inch square of light green felt
  • Sharp shears
  • Safety pins
  • Felt glue
  • Measure the costume wearer's body from head to hip as well as their waist. Then add an additional 8 inches to each measurement.

  • Cut four long crescent or football shapes from the dark green felt using sharp shears. Each one should be as long and as wide as your measurements.

  • Set the four felt pieces on a flat surface and align them side by side vertically. Glue their inside edges together in the shape of a pickle. Leave one seam unglued so the costume wearer can put on the outfit.

  • Turn the costume right side out so the seams can remain hidden. Fasten any gaps, openings and unglued seams with safety pins.

  • Cut out holes large enough for the person's face, legs and arms. Make sure the cut-outs are big enough for the person to comfortably see or fit through.

  • Cut 10 to 15 small circles from the light green felt. Fasten the circles with felt glue sporadically over the costume to make pickle bumps.

  • Allow the glue to dry for at least 30 minutes before wearing the costume.
