Willy Wonka Costume Ideas

October 28, 2011

These are some nerdy Nerds. They asked to be nerds, I asked what kind, and turns out they wanted to be the candy kind, but also be nerdy about it. They are accompanied by Mr. Wonka and a rat terrier Ompa Loompa.

The cost really just depends on how many items you already have, foam board and foam sheets are very cheap. Most of out items we had.

Approximate Time: weekend project

Supplies:

Instructions:

The Nerds "box" is a foam core board that I painted to be similar to a Nerds box. There is also a backside with a UPC on it. We used ribbon and duct tape to attach it. You can project a photo of the actual box onto the board to draw it out. I did free hand some of that, projected some. This took the longest. They are wearing plaid dresses with suspenders, bowties, glittery tights, wigs, and of course nerdy glasses with coordinating duct tape.

Mr. Wonka has a top hat, jacket made loosely from an old fashioned duster pattern, black pants and shirt with a W made of gold glitter for the neck, I just freehand cut that out. He carries a large dowel for a cane. And that isn't his real hair, by the way. And of course, big glasses, mostly so no one will recognize him.

Our dog costume is made of foam sheets, we just cut those up and glued them together. I just freehand drew the shape out. The green wig is from a past costume or maybe St Pat's Day.

That's really it! Very bright and fun. Of course you have to pass out Nerds!

Your child will be thrilled to dress up as a dancing and singing Oompa Loompa. This site has an excellent homemade solution, complete with a roly poly Violet, ready to be squeezed.
