Piñata Halloween Costume

I made this piñata dress myself using a regular dress, crépe paper, and fabric glue! Bellow is a step by step tutorial on how you can make it as well!

Hice este vestido de piñata yo misma usando un vestido normal, papel crespón, y pegamento especial para telas! Aquí les dejo con un "tutorial" paso a paso mostrando cómo puedes hacerlo tú también!

Piñata Costume Tutorial

To make this piñata costume, you just need to follow the next steps:
  1. Start by stretching out the dress with a piece of cardboard or anything else long and flat you may have available.
  2. Cut a long strip of crépe paper and then cut fringe along the entire strip.
  3. Use fabric glue to apply the crépe paper on the bottom edge of the dress
  4. Repeat the same process with as many (or few) colors as you like until you cover the entire side of the dress (I used 5 colors).
  5. Flip the dress around (carefully) and repeat the entire process on the other side.
  6. Cover the straps of the dress (if any) with smaller strips of crépe paper with fringe.
And you are all done!

Para hacer este disfraz de piñata, sólo tienes que seguir los siguientes pasos:

  1. Comienza estirando el vestido con un pedazo de cartón o cualquier otra cosa larga y plana que tengas disponible.
  2. Corta una tira larga de papel crespón y luego corta franjas a lo largo de toda la tira.
  3. Utiliza pegamento para telas para aplicar el papel crespón al borde inferior del vestido.
  4. Repite el mismo proceso con la cantidad de colores que quieras hasta que cubra todo ese lado del vestido (yo utilice 5 colores diferentes)
  5. Dale la vuelta al vestido (con cuidado) y repite todo el proceso en el otro lado.
  6. Cubre las tiritas del vestido (si los hay) con pequeñas tiras de papel crespón con flecos.

Y con eso ya terminastes!

Piñata Hat:
I made this fun piñata hat very similar to the way I made the dress. Use a birthday cone hat as a base and then apply strips of colorful crépe paper using white glue. Finish off with some strips of crépe paper coming out of the top part of the hat.

Sombrero de Piñata:
Hice este sombrero divertido de piñata muy similar a la forma en que hice el vestido. Use un sombrero de cumpleaños en forma de cono como base y luego apliqué tiras de papel crespón de colores usando goma blanco. Terminé con unas tiras de papel crespón saliendo de la parte superior del sombrero.

I used a piñata stick as a prop so that everyone would be sure to understand what I was. My mom also bought me this cute Hello Kitty piñata so that I could use it as a purse :)

Decidí usar como accesorio un palo de piñata para asegurarme de que todos entendieran en verdad de qué estaba disfrazada. Mi mamá también me compró una piñata adorable de Hello Kitty para usarlo de cartera ;)
