Yukti’s Halloween Costume : Paper Doll

For Halloween, I am making a paper doll costume. It’ll make look part of my childhood play dream and for Halloween I wanted to have a very handmade costume feel. In my 5th grade specially, me along with my friends, really enjoyed making our own paper doll clothes that we would draw cut out. I even painted a shoebox and turned it into a closet for these paper outfits.

Now, I am excited to have lights that serve as its fancy edges. It’s also going to be my first time making a Halloween Costume and being part of a parade.

For the lights I chose :


What’s special about the Neo pixel strip is that it you can wrap it around the edges but it still glows in the front. It will have rainbow colors. Operate with a buttoned circuit with light movements like that of a bicycle light.

To make my costume I will also be using the following supplies :

  1. Foam Board
  2. Hot glue gun
  3. Acrylic paints
  4. Markets
  5. Ribbon to tie myself or an elastic band with plastic cord locks

Also, after speaking with Becky and considering it’s Halloween and we will be out for a long time, I decided on two things :

  1. The outfit will have two parts. It allows for sitting.
  2. Make the outfit easy to take off in order to be able to use the bathroom or put on an extra later of clothing.
