Going through my blog photos and I realized that I never posted my Halloween Refash. I have been really slacking! Sheesh, I’m sorry readers! Nothing like posting this 2 months late 😦
So with out further delay, there is mine and mu hubbies Halloween Refashions!
We decided to go as Fred and Wilma Flintsone! I’ve been trying to make it a point of dressing up as characters who have red hair so I can use my natural hair and not a wig. It’s actually a fun challenge!
For Fred Flintsone:
I purchased 2 XXL white polos from the Salvation Army.
I used a box of Tangerine Rite dye and used the washing machine directions.
Being the caveman that Fred Flintsone is I needed to make my husband a manly tunic. I cut off the top of 1 polo.
I then sewed both polos together. I cut triangles out from the bottom on the tunic to give it a primitive effect. I also did the same to the sleeves.
I believe Fred’s tunic was supposedly made from a sabertooth tiger’s pelt. I cut out the sabertooth spots from black felt.
I planned on using fabric glue to attach the felt spots to the tunic. When gluing fabric together I always wrap my cutting mat in wax paper so that the other side of the fabric doesn’t get glued together by mistake!
I used Fabric Fusion to glue the spots to the tunic! I paired this tunic with a blue tie I found at the thrift store as well!
For Wilma Flintstone:I try my best to make my costumes as close to the actual characters. If you’ve seen any premade Wilma costumes they are just a long straight white tunic. Now if you notice Wilma in the cartoon you would see that her dress has a bubble bottom.
I found this perfect skater skirt at the thrift store! Only problem was that it had a black waistband.
I cut triangles out from thr bottom of my skirt. Again, to make it look more primitive.
For my top I used this white long sleeved shirt.
I removed one of the arms.
Then cut the shirt on a diagonal to make it a one shoulder top.
I used the fabric from the sleeve I removed to sew over top of the black waistband.
Now you can’t be Wilma without a big rock necklace! I drilled holes in styrofoam balls and linked them together with white ribbon.
Annnnnd Ta Da!!!
Fred and Wilma Flintstone 🙂
