How to Make a Fembot Costume

Save

The Fembots are robotic assassins in the movie "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery." Wearing a very skimpy (and very '60s) outfit, a Fembot could stun a man with her beauty before dispatching him. Fembot costumes have been quite popular ever since. They are available in most costume shops, sometimes selling for as much as $100. You can create a much cheaper alternative with a quick trip to the fabric store.

Things You'll Need

  • Pink faux fur
  • Scissors
  • Pink bra
  • Needle and thread
  • Pink gauzy fabric
  • Pink feather boa
  • White platform, high-heel shoes
  • Hot glue
  • Underwear
  • Blonde beehive wig
  • Makeup
  • Gloves (optional)
  • Cut two rounded triangles of pink faux fur. They should be slightly larger than the bra cups.

  • Glue the fur to the bra cups with fabric glue and allow it to dry fully.

  • Cut a piece of pink, gauzy fabric long enough to wrap around your body one and a half times. It should reach from the bra to your hips.

  • Sew the fabric to the bra, pleating it so that it all fits. These pleats will cause the fabric to flare out at your hips. Don't worry about hemming the fabric, the top and bottom edges will be hidden by the bra and boa.

    Sew the ends of the fabric together down the middle of the back, hidden within one of the pleats.

  • Cut a section of pink feather boa the same length as the bottom of the gauzy fabric.

  • Sew the boa to the bottom of the fabric.

  • Cut off two 3-inch strips of feather boa.

  • Use a hot glue gun to glue the boa strips to a pair of white, platform high-heel shoes. They should be positioned at the front of the foot hole, just above the toes.

  • Put on the costume, along with a pair of underwear and a blonde beehive wig. Do your makeup in a '60s style.
