Creating this Alvin from the Chipmunks outfit took very little effort and it was extremely cheap! The only items I had to purchase were the oversized plain red shirt and the yellow gems. Us girls, one night sat down in front of the TV and got to work. I cut the top off outlining the neck so the shirt would fall off my shoulder. I lightly drew a large A with a pencil and then began gluing down all the gems to fill in the A completely. I would say the hardest part was getting your fingers unstuck from each other when they were covered in glue!
Make sure you put a piece of cardboard in the middle of the shirt so the front and back do not end up sticking together when it dries. I already had the red heels along with the hat. The hat is just an old Red Wings hat. I would suggest wearing spandex shorts underneath the t-shirt because it was a little on the short side. This is one of the easiest and cheapest costumes I have ever made!
