Show Stopping DIY Violet Beauregard Blueberry Costume from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This Violet Beauregard Blueberry costume from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was the talk of the town! Exercise ball, newspaper, flour and water coated 3 times, let it dry and coated it 2 more times. I duct taped where it tore. I cut a hole in the bottom so I could let the air out of the exercise ball and removed it.  Then cut it big enough on top for her head and holes on he side for her arms. I hand sewed batting for pillow stuffing over the outside, then sewed blue material over it. Cut a red belt so it would show on the front half and used red material ribbon for the back half and hand sew buttons.

I bought blue leggings and used blue eye shadow to cover her whole face. She felt like a celebrity stopping in the streets so people could get a photo of her and was featured on the Hawaii Morning news station on Halloween day!

      I love your costume!!! So creative. We are going to do the same thing. How did you get her in it though? It looks like you would have to cut it in half somehow. Please advise. Thanks!
