Halloween at Work | Sugared Rush

 

Again this year I spent the day working but I wasn’t going to let that stop the fun! For tonight’s party I am dressing up with my boyfriend as Aladdin and Abu. Like last year, when I went as an Angel this year I also made a special Halloween costume for work, that was a little easier to pull together.¬†The main parts of this outfit I already had in my closet and adding the headpiece turned it into a recognizable costume! That’s the trick to wearing a costume in a typical work environment, I can change back to “work wear” in one quick motion.So it’s all in the headbands!

Two years ago I was Minnie Mouse for a different work costume and still had the ears around in my costume box. They were quite simple to create:

Supplies: felt, dotted ribbon, thread, & a plastic headband.

  • I chose to cut the ears along a folded piece of black felt so that the circles were connected and would fold over the headband.
  • I used an extra piece of felt, a bit smaller than the ear outlines and glued it inside the black edges.
  • I hand stitched around the edges to make sure they wouldn’t come apart, and to had a little detail.
  • The dotted ribbon has a build in wire¬†along the red edges, which I just tied into a bow across the headband as well. The wire keeps the bow in shape, and the bow masks the ear attachments.

Durable and adorable.
