I don’t know about your house but there was a flurry of excitement in mine when the new Ghostbusters came out at the theaters! Girl Power! I had a little girl who wanted to be transformed into a girl Ghostbuster so what was a mom to do? Whip up an inexpensive costume of course. After a quick trip to Walmart we had everything we needed to put it together. We had to throw the costume on right away and have a family movie night with the Ghostbusters Extended on Blu-Ray Edition– over 15 more minutes of action not seen in theaters and 3 hours of extras. With the help of Walmart Family Mobile and Ghostbusters we had a great movie viewing! I wanted to share my costume DIY and pics from our movie night with you!
DIY Ghostbusters Halloween Costume
Here is what you will need to put together your costume…
2 plain brown boxes about 3″-4″ deep
black spray paint
red craft foam
white craft foam
grey t shirt
green pool noodle
black ribbon, cord, straps
electrical tape-red, black, yellow
black Permanent marker
hot glue gun/sticks
You can upcycle cereal boxes if you wish but the slick cardboard doesn't take the paint very well. I hopped over to the office supply section and grabbed 2 plain brown shipping boxes for $.58 each. Spray paint boxes front and back with black paint, giving them several coats, while they are drying you can work on the uniform.
Lay a piece of yellow electrical tape across the center of the chest, smooth shirt out well first so it doesn't gather, repeat on the back.
Cut a no/prohibited symbol out of red craft foam about 4″ in diameter, cut a general ghost symbol out of white foam and hot glue behind the no symbol. This is optional as their uniforms don't actually have the symbol on them but my little one wanted it so…
Once your box is dry trace the end of your pool noodle on the side of the box, cut out the hole and slide noodle in, secure with tape to hold in place.
Add buttons, tubes, and other details like the caution yellow and black stripes on one box with pieces of electrical tape cut into squares and lengths for your proton pack.
Measure straps for your child, I used 3″ wide black ribbon that I had on hand. Hot glue the ribbon into the flaps that will be against your childs back, then hot glue the other side. You will need to hold in place while it sets.
For the ghost trap you just need to place diagonal strips of yellow on the flaps and tape a ribbon or cord to the end to toss the trap out for ghost catching! We also added a cute little foam ghost to ours. Secure the bottom with hot glue so it sits well.
For less than $10 and in less than an hours time my girl power Ghostbuster was ready to go and she loved it!Grab your copy of Ghostbusters Extended Edition Blu-Ray,DVD and 4K UltraHD at Walmart. Check out the trailer for Ghostbusters HERE!
