As most of you know, I love Halloween. I always prefer making my own costume over purchasing a store-bought one, so I end up making quite a few trips to the craft store and my local Target. But what if you’re REALLY on a budget this Halloween and all you can afford is something like… toilet paper? It sounds crazy I know, but I promise it can work.
When you typically think of toilet paper costumes, you might think of a mummy or maybe even a bride, but I like to think outside the box. To me, toilet paper sort of resembles gauze bandages, so I immediately thought of dressing up as a plastic surgery patient. I’ve been watching a lot of Botched, sue me!
To make the costume, you’ll need some sturdy toilet paper, like Cottonelle Triple Roll. So naturally I headed over to Target to pick up some toilet paper- along with 500 other things, because that’s just what happens there.
You can use the toilet paper in a variety of ways. Some typical surgeries that result in you being bandaged include rhinoplasty, breast augmentations, face lifts, and more.
Use a few layers of the toilet paper to mimic the thickness of the actual bandages and either wrap them around the area or tape them on with clear tape.
Then it’s time to finish your look. Using a black eyeliner pencil, draw surgical incision marks in appropriate places. I chose to have lines for a face lift. If you’re feeling crazy, maybe plump up your lips to look like you just had lip injections or draw on some arched eyebrows as a result of a face lift gone wrong. Sure, I look a bit scary and ridiculous, but that’s what Halloween is all about!
