How to Make an Elf Costume Mon, 27 Jul 2009 19:38:31 +0000 Whether you are dressing up for Christmas or Halloween, you can make an eye catching elf costume all on your own. With a few things gathered from here and there you will be the talk of the town. Or, shall we say the talk of the North Pole?


Things You’ll Need:

Green or Red Tights
Green Oversized Vest
Red Oversized Turtle Neck
Large Buttons
Craft Pom Poms
Large Craft Bells
Needle Thread
Fabric Glue
Santa Cap
Ankle Slippers
Large/Wide Black Belt or Rope

Putting your Elf Costume Together:


Step 1: You need to make your turtle neck and vest more elf authentic. To do this, cut the hems of each in a zig zag pattern all the way around. Take any existing buttons off the vest and replace them with the large buttons. If you don’t know how to sew use fabric glue. When dressing, the turtleneck is the dress and the vest and belt go overtop. You can also replace the belt with a rope tied around the waist.

Step 2: Use the craft pom poms to dress up the ankle slippers you are using. One pom pom on the front of each slipper will do. Add two craft bells to each of the slippers as well. You will probably have to stitch them on, unless your slipper has a tie or lace you can attach the to.

Step 3: To make your Santa hat stand straight up, stuff it with newspaper. You cam also adorn it with plastic mistletoe or write your name on the front in glitter glue.

Elf Costumes Sat, 11 Jul 2009 14:13:03 +0000 One of the world’s best-kept “secrets” is the humble elf.  Everyone is always heaping on the complements and adoration for old Saint Nick, but in reality it’s his vast workforce of personal minions, the elves, that do all the “heavy lifting.”  But this unpleasantness aside, the Elf has long been associated with Santa Claus and Christmas.  Elves work year round at the North Pole creating toys for mostly unappreciative children.

Halloween is a great time to show the lowly elf a little respect.  After all they have worked hard to crank out all those Christmas toys that you now have forgotten and discarded.   Some of the many elf costumes include the Buddy Elf Adult Costume from the popular The Elf movie with Will Ferrell, and the Sexy Elf Adult Costume, which sports a very sexy short skirt and a cute little green cap.  Elf boots, such as the Joy Green Adult Boots, work really well with this sexy elf costume in particular.

A fun idea for couples would be to show up both dressed as elves.  Ideas this cute are pretty rare. They, of course, also make for great photo opportunities.  Consider finding a friend who is also going to the Halloween party or costume party and see if they wish to join you in a Christmas Santa costume.  Just make sure that you have a few treats to pass out!

After all the elves have done for us, isn’t it time that we showed them a little respect come Halloween?  A fun elf costume is an easy way to make sure that our elf friends know how much we love them.
