Are you looking for an easy and cheap Halloween costume being perfect either for adults and for kids? Want to create a quick cosplay for a group of people? Need to find a good idea for a 80’s themed party outfit? Then this tutorial might be helpul to you.
Today we are making the Pac-Man‘s ghosts costume. More specifically, my daughter asked me to help her dress like Pinky, the pink ghost from the original 1980’s 2D and 8-bit Pac-Man videogame.
There are no doubts this one is a very simple costume to make. No particular sewing skills are needed and this cosplay is totally cheap.
Pinky ghost costume is good for a single dress-up but also for a group cosplay as four different people can be Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde, the full team of Pac-Man’s enemies.
Let’s see, step by step, how to make it.
As we are trying to reproduce a bidimensional character from a 2D videogame, the idea is to make Pinky‘s body as flat as can be. So we are going to make Pinky with a thick felt fabric (even cardboard would do, but I recommend felt as it is much more comfortable to wear). Then Pinky‘s costume will be wore like a sandwich, the front and the back being linked together with 2 straps.
