This year I decided to go as a gumball machine. It's silly and a great excuse to wear copious amounts of pom poms. :D
I saw a picture on Pinterest and immediately went full on arms-flailing-that-is-so-adorable mode and knew I wanted to recreate the costume.
A gumball machine is a really great last minute costume!
P.S. Please pardon my lack of in progress photos. I made this costume from about 8:30 pm to 2 am on the 29th and somewhere along the way entirely forgot to pick up the camera. Ha!
P.P.S. This costume is WARM. The top doesn't breathe at all. But you will give and receive awesome fluffy hugs while wearing it. So I guess it evens out?
Pretty easy! I was able to complete this costume in about six hours, but I bet it will only take you a couple hours or so if you don't insist on making the skirt yourself. :D
