How to Make聽Cucumber Sticks

We used some extra foam batting that we had lying around from a previous DIY, but if you don鈥檛 have foam you could create the same effect with long rolls of paper. Spray paint the foam green and then cut it into long rectangular strips.

How to Make a Shrimp Costume

Grab an old bed pillow, then cut out a piece of orange fabric that is large enough to wrap around the pillow. (If you have an orange pillow case, that will work too.) Wrap the pillow like a present and secure the fabric with hot glue. Use the yarn to section off the two bottom corners of the pillow to turn them into a fish tail.

Use white fabric paint to add some scalloped detailing (scales) to your piece of fish.

How to Make a Wasabi Hat

Fringe some green paper and roll it into a cylindrical shape. Tie the shower loofah onto a headband and then glue the green fringe to the backside.

Real wasabi might be way too hot for you, but this wasabi hat is just hot enough.

Time to assemble your sushi roll! Dress in all white (you are the rice!). Hold the pillow to your back as a friend helps wrap you in black fabric. Attach the fabric to itself using hot glue. Give your seaweed wrap some more texture by adding a layer of black and green tulle. Attach the tulle with hot glue or safety pins. Slide in your cucumber strips and that鈥檚 it!

Pair with a fun set of heels and you are ready for the night. I mean, COME ON! Could this be any cuter? (Absolutely not.)

How to Make a Salmon Sushi Costume

For the salmon sushi we chose a dark orange fabric for the pillow and left it as a rectangle to mock the salmon slice.

Go crazy with the hair! Our Beauty Stylist, Misty, gave Ashley fun mini buns that cascaded into a ponytail at the nape of her neck.

How to Make a Salmon Nigiri Costume

Someone鈥檚 got to be the nigiri! Grab a salmon-colored dress from the thrift store and add some white lines to represent the salmon fat. Lay on top of a white body pillow, 鈥檆ause it鈥檚 your rice (duh)!

How to Make a Soy Sauce Costume

Sushi_Halloween_117

Sushi without soy sauce is a sin. So of course you need a friend to play this role! Grab some yellow felt and trace and cut out the letters for soy sauce. We didn鈥檛 want to ruin this black dress, so we used fashion tape to adhere the letters, but feel free to hot glue them onto the dress if you want.
