Halloween is one of my absolute favorite times. I LOVE coming up with unique costumes and crafting them myself [you can see my videos for a tiffany’s box and a crayon here]. People have asked me why I haven’t filmed my costumes the last two years, and that’s because my friend Abbie and I have made a tradition out of making them together the day of the party [otherwise known as Project Runway: Halloween Edition]. ‘Halloween’ has turned into an entire day of fun for us as opposed to just a night out or a party. We spend the day fabric shopping, cutting, sewing, gluing, drinking caramel vodka cider + getting excited for the night ahead. Last year we were cupcakes, which is one of my all time favorite costumes I’ve ever worn
Until this year when we went as–
TALL PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES!! Oh my gosh. I’m STILL so excited about how these turned out.
This costume would be MUCH easier if you just printed out an iron on decal of the Starbucks logo, but we used silk / spandex slips as our dresses that couldn’t have fabric ironed on. So we went the much more extensive route of cutting the logo out of felt [without a stencil!] and then gluing the felt on top of white fabric.
I found these slips at a department store and bought a looser fit in the largest size so it would hang instead of cling. We hot glued the logo onto the center of the dress, and cut off the lace from the bottom of the slip so it would look more like a dress.
To create the ‘whip cream’, we cut out circles of thick ivory fabric [felt or something similar]. The circles were the same size as the circle logo in the center. Then you fold the circle three times to create a rosette-type look, gluing the folds to make them stick. Then we sewed each rosette onto the inside of the top of the slip.
We made the sides of the dresses look like cups by drawing the drink box and writing ‘PSL’ followed with the signature name on the coffee cup. Note: If you want to get real with this costume, you obviously need to misspell your name like a true Starbucks cup.
The straw was created by using a paper towel rod and some forest green paint. We finished off the look by accessorizing the dress with starbucks bags for purses + starbucks cups!
We’re obsessed with how these turned out! Did you guys go as anything fun for halloween or do you have any fun traditions? Let us know!
