OOTD: Ms Pac Man & The Ghosts

8:30 AM


Every year, I love dressing up for Halloween. It's especially fun when you go as a group. The possibilities you have are endless. You can be the Justice League, Gru and the minions, Power Rangers - the list goes on and on! I celebrated Halloween a bit earlier this year...my friends and I went to New York Comic Con at the beginning of the month. It was the first time for a lot of us and we thought it would be more fun to get in the spirit and dress up. We did a bit of a throwback and went as Ms. PacMan and the 4 ghosts, Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde.
It was a huge hit! Everyone loved it and we were featured a lot on Instagram, like on The Gothamist  
and even got a few seconds of air time on CBS!

The ghost costumes were pretty easy to make. You buy cardboard, cut out the design with a sharp utility knife (box cutter) and paint the cardboard with the different colors. I then used construction paper to cut the eyes. Instead of just doing a one sided ghost, I thought it'd be funny if we there were blue ghosts on the back. That way - ghosts can chase me and I can chase the ghosts!


Ms. Pac Man is a bit more difficult, but still not bad. Like the ghosts, I made the costume out of cardboard. I made this more of a "3-D" costume, cutting two pac man circles and connecting them together with yellow cardboard. I had to make it quite wide so I could fit in (believe me, it was tough!).  


Don't forget to check out the video we made as well! It's pretty amusing!
