Easy to Make Girl Mummy Costumes

Along with the famous Egyptian kings such as Tutankhamen and Cheops, famous women also helped form the history of Egypt. Queens like Nefertiti and Hatshepsut were strong figures in Egyptian history; and, after their deaths, were mummified in the traditional way. Consequently, mummy costumes can be equally appropriate for girls at a Halloween party as for boys. This method of creating a mummy costume uses tea bags to stain the costume, giving it the aged and ancient feel appropriate for an Egyptian mummy.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Foundation make-upEyeliner pencilBlue face paintGauze bandagesGirl's white turtleneck jumperGirl's white sweatpantsWhite sneakersBath tubTea bags

Instructions

1 Turn on your bath tub and fill with warm water. Drop four tea bags into the water and stir around so that the tea diffuses in the water.

2 Drop the white sweatpants and white turtleneck jumper into the water. Push them down so that they are totally submerged and leave them there to soak up the colour. Keep checking on the garments; and when they are stained with the tea colour, take them out of the water, wring them and hang them up to dry.

3 Gauge how much of the gauze bandage you will need by wrapping strips of it around the girl who will be wearing the costume. Remember that the less neat the costume looks, the more effective it will be. Sso leave room for bandages to hang torn or loose.

4 Drop the strips of bandages into the bath tub and hold them under the water until they become stained with tea. The pull them out, wring them and hang them up to dry.

5 Give the dry turtle neck and sweatpants to the girl to put on. Ask her to put on her white sneakers.

6 Thickly apply the foundation to the girl's face to make it look aged and weathered. Use the eyeliner pencil to draw crevices and wrinkles on her skin, then apply the blue face paint around the lips and eyes to make her look like a pallid, zombie mummy.

7 Start wrapping the tea stained bandages around her, tying them loosely at the end of each strip. Remember that the more ramshackle to mummy looks the more impressive the costume.
