Microphone costume

My daughter wanted to be a microphone and a disney princess so I made her a combination of the two.  This costume can be catered to anything though.  This is a disney princess costume but can easily be a superhero, sports figure, animal or just a microphone.  It is not that hard to make so please read on…..

Step 1: Build the microphone

For this step I used a Quik-Tube from a local home hardware store.  This is actually a form for pouring cement.  I put it over my daughter and held it up so the bottom was around knee height.  Once I did that, I cut it giving her about 5 inches from the top.  I used a table saw for an easy cut.

Once I had the right length, I then cut out a hole for her face and each arm.  I used a utility knife for that.  Once I made those cuts, I placed duck tape around the edge of the cuts to give it a better smoother edge.

I then painted the tube.  My daughter wanted pink so I put three coats of paint on the tube.

Step 2: Create the top of the microphone

I purchased this ball from WalMart for $3.88.  I taped it to the tube for the top of the microphone. 

Step 3: Decorations

I used this shinny duck tape on the ball to make it look more like a microphone. I also cut out pictures of the Disney Princesses and glued them on the body.   You can't tell from this picture but there are about 8 princesses glued all over the body.  I also cut a small piece of black construction paper and glued it between the ball and the tube.

Hope you like it.

Awesome! And much more interesting I think that just a princess costume:-).
Won't be always easy to find the tube though.

Ysabeau, thanks for the comments. The tube can be found at any Home Depot or Lowes. The fun part of this costume was my daughter got the chance to place all the pictures of the princesses where she wanted them.
