Hey! Halloween is two days away, so I figured I better tell ya what you need to make a DIY (do it yourself) jellyfish costume if anyone else wants to try it.
The main thing you’ll need is a clear umbrella. I got mine on Amazon with two day shipping here: Totes clear umbrella.
I’m going to wear a lavender wig and go as Anime character Princess Jellyfish as I mentioned in Part One here.
This costume is pretty inexpensive and easy to make, it took me about 20 minutes.
All you need is:
1.) The clear umbrella, preferably dome shaped.
2.) A white outfit of any kind, or silver, or light pastel colors, or any combination.
I think I’ll wear a white skirt, a white top and a thin white trench coat, as it’s cold trick or treating at night with my kiddo. Maybe a white or silver scarf, too.
3.) Strong clear tape like clear packing tape.
4.) Things to stream off of the jellyfish as tentacles like ribbon, etc.
I went to the craft store and bought large bubble wrap that I cut into long strips, white and iridescent ribbon, one with more glitter and one that was wired on the ribbon sides, and white shimmery, thin tubing.
You can cut it as long as you like. I opened the umbrella and taped it on the inside of the bottom plastic with the clear packing tape.
The thin tubing, I just tied it inside the umbrella spokes on the top (the umbrella still closes.)
I went with a white, iridescent theme, but you can be a green or blue jellyfish, or mix it up, whatever ya like.
5.) Lots of glow bracelets and necklaces in whatever colors you want.
I wrapped four glow bracelets around the top inside spokes of the umbrella to demonstrate here, but on the night of, I’m gonna use a ton of them to really light it up in the dark.
I may even wear some around my neck and wrists.
So that’s it! Wig or crazy make-up optional.
I’ll show you my finished product later this week. It should look something like this:
