How to Make a Loofah Costume

Save

Sexy bee. Sexy mouse. Sexy police officer. It seems like every female-specific costume these days is a sexy version of something boring. If you're a lady with a silly sense of humor and a penchant for the absurd, do something different for your next Halloween or costume party by dressing up like a household object. A coffee cup, a telephone, a pencil or even your favorite brightly-colored loofah are all fair game for funny -- and yes, possibly even sexy -- costume ideas.

Things You'll Need

  • 30 to 50 yards of tulle
  • Scissors
  • Matching T-shirt and shorts or short dress
  • Tights in matching color
  • Safety pins or needle and thread
  • 10 to 12 feet of white rope
  • Silver glitter spray (optional)
  • Rhinestone tiara (optional)
  • White shoes

Step 1

Cut the tulle into more manageable pieces measuring 1 or 2 yards apiece.

Step 2

Crumple up the pieces of tulle to make them fluffy.

Step 3

Put on the shorts and T-shirt or dress and the tights, which should all match the color of the tulle.

Step 4

Bunch up the crumpled tulle and safety-pin or stitch it to your clothing in a billowing, loofah-like pattern. Solicit help for the back.

Step 5

Cut the rope into three equal pieces. Knot them together at one end, or tie them securely with a piece of thread. Braid the three pieces together.

Step 6

Form the braid into a loop and pin it to your shoulder.

Step 7

To make the loofah look wet, spray it all over with silver glitter spray.

Step 8

Wear the costume with white shoes and a tiara if desired.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you are wearing the costume with a T-shirt and shorts, be sure not to pin them together (for restroom purposes).
  • Silver glitter spray is available at many party stores.
  • How much tulle you'll need will depend on how large the person wearing the costume is.
