Martini Glass Halloween Costumes

Save

For a costume that's creative and grown-up, dress up as a martini for your next Halloween. Whether you order the costume from a costume shop or make it yourself, it's an easily recognizable look, based on just a few elements. Variations are easy, making it possible to form a whole group of coordinated costumes, outfitted like a full liquor cabinet. Take inspiration for martini variations from the menu of your favorite cocktail bar.

A Crafty Costume

  • If your budget is limited but you have the time and the inclination for some creative crafting, you can design your own martini glass costume. Around your neck, wear a see-through cone-shaped collar designed for dogs, available either at veterinary clinics or pet supply shops. Wrap your body in clear plastic wrap to create the appearance of a long, slender base of the glass. To top off the look, wear a green ski mask to make your head resemble a martini's signature olive. For an additional final touch, you can paint a plastic child's sword in a neon color and set it within your "cup" in the style of a cocktail sword.

A Ready-Made Get-up

  • If you'd rather leave costume-making to the professionals, you can find a martini glass costume through many of the more expansive costume shops. Look at online catalogs for shops with large inventories of unusual costumes for grown-ups. You might opt for a three-dimensional design with a large, clear, cone-shaped "cup" that resembles the homemade dog collar design. If you'd prefer a costume with better visibility and comfort, you can select one which restricts the "martini glass" design to below the neck and shoulders. To personalize a generic martini glass look, you can use colorful cellophane paper to line the glass to resemble an appletini, chocolate-tini or your favorite concoction.

An Oversized Glass

  • If you design your costume yourself, you might opt for a splashy, over-sized design. Cut a large sheet of clear, rigid plastic into a circle measuring approximately four feet across, making one cut between the circle's center and a point on its circumference. Cut a hole out of the center of the circle, large enough to encircle your waist. Draw the edges together to form the circle into a three-dimensional cone. The cone serves as the martini glass's bowl. Wear it so that it sits at your waist, arching up and outwards. Keep a large green plastic ball inside, to serve as an olive. Your legs will serve as the stem of the glass. If you are a woman, you might wear platform or high-heeled shoes to lengthen the "stem."
