Did you know that you can use a bed sheet to make almost any costume that you would like? Surprisingly most people don’t know just how helpful a bed sheet can be and just how many options they really have when it comes to using them for costume ideas. Below are a few of the ways that you can use a bed sheet to make costumes.
So you want to be a ghost for Halloween or would like to make a ghost costume for your child. You will want a white sheet for this and then will want to drape it over the person you intend to use it for. From there you can decide where the eyes need to be cut out. Make sure that you get these in the right spot so that the wearer will be able to see as they walk and try to move around.
Many people like to attend toga parties. You will be able to use a sheet for this idea as well. You want to make sure however that you either have something on under it or that it is a colour that cannot be seen through easily. Choose a darker colour if you don’t want to have to wear a lot of clothes under it and chances are that you won’t want to do this anyways as it would simply not look right.
Another option that you have is to make a princess costume out of a bed sheet. You might actually want to use more than one for this idea. You can make the dress by wrapping it and then adding to it with different odds and ends that will really accent it and bring it to life. Little girls love to dress up and using a sheet is a great way to make them a costume that is like a princess no matter what time of year it happens to be but Halloween is a time it would be more than perfect for. You can also use a bed sheet to make a costume that resembles the attire of past historical figures. Back in the day some of the items worn really looked like a bed sheet as they were often just a wrap much like a toga that went around the individual that was wearing it.
As you can see you can use a bed sheet for many different costume ideas and these are only a few of them. Think about the costume idea that you have and then think about how a sheet can be arranged to make the look that you have in mind. Remember that you will need to think about the size bed sheet that you need to make sure that you will have enough fabric for the idea that you have in mind. Also consider whether you will need a few or if one bed sheet is going to be enough to handle the idea that you have in mind.
