DIY: Poweline Halloween Costume (A Goofy Movie)

Courtney Tomesch DIY Poweline Halloween Costume A Goofy Movie

For Halloween this year I was Powerline from A Goofy Movie. This was a super easy costume to make. The idea sparked when I was at Kohl's and found a yellow dress on the sale rack for like 80% off. The dress was an XS which I'm totally not but I was able to make it work for this costume. The top part of the dress wouldn't button, so I just got a cami for underneath. A yellow cami was impossible to find in October as it is not a fall color, so I just bought a white one and dyed it yellow. This worked way better than I could have imagined and you couldn't tell it was dyed unless you looked at the stitching. If you are ever looking for camis in any color go to Forever 21 they are only $1.90 and they have ever color or you can just get white and dye it any color you need. Also on the shirt I painted on Powerline's logo. I mixed my one colors so sorry can't tell you what to use there. For the dress to make it fit a bit better, I cut out the elastic waste band and made a little slit under the armpit area and hemmed it. And like that the dress fit. To finish off the outfit I wore a black belt with a felt circle on it. I wore black leggings but yellow would have been better, I just didn't want to buy yellow leggings that I'm never going to wear again. And for shoes I wore black boots. Lastly for accessories I made bracelets out of Gold felt from the craft store. I cut out six (6) 2 x 9 strips out of the gold felt. Folded one strip sewed it together (hand sewing was a lot easier) flipped it inside out stuffed it with pillow stuffing and sewed them shut. then I sew three together on the inside to keep them from going all other the place on my arm and used safe pins to keep them on my wrist. I tied making a 2 longer ones for a necklace but that was too hard and gave up. For makeup I just did what ever then drew on a little black circle on my nose to mimic a dog nose. And for hair I just kind of made something up. Powerline's hair goes straight up into a little zig-zag pony tail and I couldn't figure out a way to do that. I definitely want to expand on this costume; get yellow tights, figure out the necklace and hair but I had a ton of fun as Powerline.
