DIY: Easy Rosie the Riveter Halloween Costume

Yes, I show up at costume parties bringing my own backdrop.  That’s normal, right?

I loved the way my Rosie the Riveter costume came out this year, plus it was super easy, comfortable, and inexpensive.  I think it was under $10.  All I used was a dollar store bandana, red lipstick, big piece of foam core, paint, and a piece of white card stock.

Call me crazy, but it never crossed my mind to not make the yellow and blue background part of my costume. The whole image is so bold and iconic, I would’ve just been a person wearing a bandana without it.

My favorite part about this costume is that little kids have no idea who Rosie the Riveter is, so you can give them a little history lesson.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how interested they are  🙂

What did you dress up as this year?
