You guys. I can’t even tell you how stinking excited I am to share this costume with y’all. When my daughter told me 6 months ago (we like to plan ahead) that she wanted to be Lucille Ball for Halloween, I was thrilled. What a fun costume idea! They don’t make super cute I Love Lucy costumes for kids… and if they do, they are super pricey yet cheap looking. So DIY was a must, but it was actually a really simple costume to put together. Take a look of our version of Lucille Ball in this I Love Lucy costume…
My Luci (yes, that’s my daughter’s name) LOVES Lucille Ball and knows pretty much everything about her. So she is well versed in practicing her facial expressions and silly antics… and of course yelling “Ricky!!” LOL!
For this costume, I made the apron and the pearl necklace and earring set. I used white fabric, lace, ribbon, and red felt (for the heart!) for the apron. I glued everything together with fabric glue… no sewing! I used white puff paint to mock I Love Lucy like the logo. The necklace I strung together using faux pearls and I made the earrings by gluing two faux pearls to earring studs. We ordered the polka dot dress from Amazon and found the black ballet flats at Walmart, but there are similar shoes on Amazon. The red bandanna is from JoAnn, but you can get it on Amazon as well too. It’s always easier to order it all online and have it shipped right to your door, in my opinion!
We found a tutorial for her cute hair style online and used a lot of bobby pins and hairspray, but it turned out so cute. We couldn’t find a good wig for kids and we opted not to dye my Luci’s hair, so I think this was a great compromise.
Plus a little red lipstick… because obviously Lucy wears red lipstick… and your I Love Lucy costume is complete! So fun, right?!
I know y’all don’t have time to make this costume for this Halloween, but PIN IT for later so you can find it easily for future Halloweens.
Doesn’t she make the perfect Lucy?! We had SO MUCH FUN making this costume… and my daughter totally sells it! Such a ham… I just adore the heck out of her.
Thanks so much for stopping by friends! Have a fantastic weekend and a Happy Halloween!
