First I got medium sized sour gumballs from the dollar store. I had to use about 6 bags. Then I cut them in half and hot glued them to a white tank top. I purchased the tank top and a middle of the knee length red skirt from the Goodwill. I also got red fishnets, rainbow ribbon, and a 2 and a 5 sticker from Walmart. I put the 25 stickers on black construction paper. Then I drew a cent sign, the knob you twist and a slot with a white crayon. I glued the black construction paper onto white so it would be more sturdy. So it would stay on my skirt, I safety pinned it.
The most time consuming part was gluing all of the gumballs on my costume. BUT my Gumball costume was an absolute hit everywhere I went. It made me soooo happy that I put so much time and effort into it! I really liked it because it was unique and something different. I got so many compliments from friends and people out on the town. And it was just the right amount of sexy and cute without being over the top sexual or showing too much skin!:)
