DIY: Tamagotchi Costume

Here's an easy last minute Halloween costume reminiscent of the 90s :: Tamagotchi.

Virtual pets were a big thing in the 90s and evoke a nostalgic feel to those of us that had one. Tamagotchi was possibly the greatest brand in demand and it is still being produced to this day. My sister and I never actually owned a Tamagotchi, we both had Giga Pets. I still have mine in working condition, which I think is pretty cool. 

Per usual, I was short on time to come up with a costume and decided to be a Tamagotchi for Halloween last year. I browsed this Tamagotchi index until I settled on a cute Tamagotchi Nano model. The process was self explanatory, yet I will share the steps I used below:
  • Jumbo bead necklace
  • Clear pvc sheet
  • Glow sticks
  • Glue sticks & glue gun
  • Pencil & eraser
  • Paint & paint brush 
  • Poster board
  • Ribbon
  • Ruler & compass

  1. Cut out the iconic egg shape
    (It did not come out perfect but, oh well.)
  2. Sketched out the rest of the design
  3. Painted the design with its respective color
  4. Measured ribbon to wear around my neck
  5. Cut vinyl sheet to the size of the screen
  6. Hot glued the ribbon and vinyl accordingly
  7. Glued glow sticks to the frame of the screen
  8. Use the bead necklace to create the chain

Let me know what you plan on dressing up for Halloween this year. Any suggestions would be much appreciated too cause I still don't know what I'm going to be. Hopefully I'll have enough time to plan ahead but, I'll probably throw something together last minute again. (▰˘◡˘▰)
