This weekend Husband and I went to our friend's Halloween party dressed as the Fantastic Mr. and Mrs. Fox! It's one of my very favorite movies and I have been wanting to do it for Halloween since it came out!
|Mr. and Mrs. Fox!|
On to the details!
I got lucky and found a long sleeved yellow trapeze cut dress for $3 at Salvation Army! I cut the sleeves to 3/4 length and used the remainder to add a collar and a paintbrush pocket!
Then I made a stencil (using my method from this post) of an apple to paint the apples onto the dress! After they dried I painted a green leaf on each apple. I also painted a wood button yellow to add to the collar!
I drew out a design on letter sized paper and cut out the different pieces of the faces from colored felt. I hot-glued everything on, and glued the felt mask to a cheap plastic one from Michaels! It took some adjusting cutting out the eye holes correctly, and I had to cut away some of the plastic for comfort.
Finally, I made a simple tail for myself and felt band-aids for my husband's bottom! (Mr. Fox's tail gets shot off in the movie!) I even made a cardstock version of Mrs. Fox's cameo brooch!
We got a lot of compliments, particularly from those who'd seen the film!
$3 - felt
$2- 3-pack of plastic masks
$2 - thrifted button down shirt
$3 - thrifted yellow dress
Total - $10
Everything else came from things we already had on hand!
Before and after!
Happy Halloween and thanks for reading!!
