How to dress up as Spice Girls for Halloween {Group Costume DIY}

November 11, 2017

I'm a bit late on my Halloween post. But, I just had to share my Halloween costume this year! Actually, my costume was part of a larger group costume that I took part in with the lovely peeps at work.

If you follow my blog and/or my Instagram (I hope you follow both), you’ll probably know that I love puns…a lot. I like to use them in my captions and headlines. So, it seemed fitting and more creative to transform a pun into a form of a costume as a group. And, we decided to become the Spice Girls!

Now, we’re not your favourite girl group from the 90s, we’re literally a spice you might find in your pantry. And to make things more interesting and funny, we put a cultural spin on our costumes.

How to Dress Up as Spice Girls for Halloween (Group Costume DIY)

Here’s what you'll need:

  • 2 x Bristol boards per costume 
  • Red ribbons or strings 
  • Glue stick or tape 
  • Scissors 
  • Printer 
  • Stapler 
  • Red top hat (you could find it in party stores) 
  • Hole puncher


Instructions:

  1. Download my template here.
  2. Print each template out onto two landscape-oriented Legal-sized paper in colour. To break the image in half when printing, you’ll need to select “tiling” in your printing settings and select “overlap by 0.5 in”. This will allow a 0.5” overlapping area for you to apply glue and to stick the sheets together.
  3. Glue the full image onto 1 horizontal Bristol board. This will be the front of your costume.
     
  4. Print the barcode image onto a full size Letter-sized paper in black.
  5. Glue barcode image onto the lower bottom of the Bristol board down the middle.
  6. Form a cylinder with the 2 Bristol boards with the images outside.
  7. Staple the sides of the Bristol boards while adjusting the circumference of the boards so that there’s enough room for you to remove your costume. (We’ve concluded that it was easier to staple down the shape while wrapping yourself with the boards) 
  8. Punch two holes at the front and two holes at the back of the board.
  9. To create shoulder straps, insert a strip of ribbon into one of the holes from the outside of the board and connect with the opposite end of the hole. Tie knot from the inside of the cylinder.
  10. Repeat above step for the other shoulder strap

To complete this look, just wear everything black so your spice bottle costume stands out. And if you want to add some pizzazz to your look, put on your boldest red lipsticks. Now you're ready to spice up everyone's lives!
