Simple DIY Deer costume-Doubles for Halloween or Christmas...
Then I got to thinking...
If you're like me, the answer is most likely- yes, been there. HELP!
How about an easy #DIYreindeer costume?
C'mon even Santa can't do what he needs to do without his flying reindeer pals.
YOU'LL BE A HAPPY CAMPER AFTER WATCHING IT.
So, to help out my peeps, I've included clickable links on what you need to make the costume portion. Following the links I've included directions on makeup and a video with instructions to make the costume.
Here's what you'll need...
1.) Felties Felt Sheet, Brown, 9 12"
Brown #felt sheet should make 2 ears and a tail.
($2.28 for one sheet)
2.) Revlon Soft Touch Headbrands, 2 Count
Brown #headband. Best price is listed.
($4.88 for the two pack)
3.) Angelina Seamless Leggings
($9.88-One size fits all- brown)
4.) Womens Scoop Neck Short Sleeve Tee Tops Cotton
Amazon's Choice- For Women's brown shirt.
($12.99- Select size at checkout)
5.) Hareline Extra Select Craft Fur
I went to my local #Michaels craft store to purchase the craft fur I used. There are many choices to choose from. Here is one option. I selected a #tan shade but there are many to choose from. Click the #picture #link on the right to purchase.
($4.60 for 5 x 5)
6.) Big Rose Flower Headband Hair Wreath Halo Crown F-37
OK, let's be real, the face makes this costume. I didn't list the makeup I used because I bought mine at the #dollarstore! We all know buying expensive #makeup that is several shades darker than you normally wear is a no-no.
So, here's what I bought:
3.) A no-brand black #eyeliner pencil
First- Use the dark foundation against the hairline, cheekbones and on the lower chin. Apply with sponge, brush or finger. Follow with brushing the bronzer over the foundation.
The T-zone stays lighter so that's where the concealer goes. Trace over brows, under eyes, down nose, on chin. Blend. At this point I used a light mist of setting spray.
Add "spots" by dotting concealer over the face. I put white eyeshadow over the dots using a q-tip to set.
Black pencil should be used to trace inner nose and upper lip.
* I glued on faux lashes. Obvi, don't do that for school age kids...
Viola! You have a #reindeer!
