Do you have a Halloween party or event you are attending this year? Need an quick and easy costume idea for you and your spouse or for your kids? Cosmo and Wanda Fairly Odd Parents makes one of the best couples halloween costumes! In my last post on 6 DIY Halloween costumes, I mentioned that my boyfriend and I recreated Cosmo and Wanda from Nickelodeon’s Fairly OddParents last year for Halloween. Again, this costume is fun to make and CHEAP. I picked up all of the supplies, but the hairspray paint, from Hobby Lobby and my total was under $10! And I had enough supplies for two costumes. Below you’ll find a quick and simple step-by-step Cosmo and Wanda Fairly Odd Parents costume tutorial!
Homemade Cosmo and Wanda Fairly Odd Parents Costume Tutorial
Cosmo and Wanda Costume Supplies Needed:
- Yellow foam sheet
- Wooden paint stirrer
- Black paint
- Tacky glue and/or stapler
- Black pipe cleaner
- Black headband
- Green and/or pink hairspray dye optional
- Wings optional
How To Make Cosmo and Wanda Crown & Wand For DIY Cosmo and Wanda Costumes:
Step 1: On a yellow foam sheet, draw a star and a crown with three points. Each should be 3-5 inches wide.
Step 2: Cut out your star and your crown.
Step 3: Take a wooden paint stirrer and paint it black (acrylic works best, or anything paint meant for wood).
Step 4: Using tacky glue, glue the foam star to the wooden stick. If the glue doesn’t seem like it will hold, secure the star with clear tape. This serves as your DIY Cosmo and Wanda wand!
Step 5: Take a piece of black pipe cleaner and glue (or staple) it to the back of the crown. Wrap the other end of the pipe cleaner around a black, stretchy headband. Clear tape will help keep the pipe cleaner secure. Be sure to bend the pipe cleaner so that it hovers right above the top of your head.
Step 6: Put the headband across your forehead. You may need to bobby pin the pipe cleaner to your head so that the crown does not move about too much. There you have your Cosmo and Wanda crown for your DIY cosutmes.
Step 7: For Wanda, find a yellow t-shirt and black pants. For Cosmo, you need a white button down, black pants, and a black tie. And if you’re willing, spray your hair with either green or pink hairspray paint! This can easily be picked up at your local Walmart.
Cosmo and Wanda also have wings; they’re fairies after all. You can get wings cheap, make some cosmo and wanda wings diy out of cardboard or manila folder paper, or just go without them. The costume will still read! I encourage you all to challenge your creativity and make a costume you’ll remember and love. It’s affordable and really fun to make these Cosmo and Wanda Fairly Odd Parents Costumes with your spouse or your kids!
