Homemade Miley Cyrus VMA Halloween costume:
The entire Miley Cyrus fanfare was a buzz over twerks and tweets. Especially after the 2013 VMA. Reports of Miley risky and raunchy, exploding in exploration, and, well, just down right slutty on stage leads us to her “Troy” — the cute psychotic teddy bear.
The bear outfit was adorable to some, yet too provocative and crazy to others. Miley is definitely reinventing her growth in a most unusual way. Even Miley’s tongue got bigger. No matter how many people do not agree with Miley’s bear (or bare), there’s those who want to be Miley for just one day.
Today is that day.
View one of Miley’s most picked and prodded performances by catching the VMA performance in serious slow motion on YouTube. That’s the outfit you’ll be making and the character you’ll portray.
Miley and her radical knobs. If you can over twist hair until it coils itself, wrap the twisted hot mess on each side (into a tight knob) and apply a rubber band, you can look like Miley at the VMA Just make sure each knob is located at the top of the head. Miley has changed her color to blond and cut the sides down, but that might not matter once the hair is tightly twisted. It’s more about the shape and less about the color.
Miley-wear? Miley wears an unforgettable bear-like outfit with circles on her breasts, The circles represent bunny ears. The outfit was cute, the bear imitation was a little off. Purchase a bear outfit for $175 at Bonanza or make one of your own at short notice. Homemade is cheaper.
Creating the Miley Cyrus outfit!
Gather one of four suggestions; cloth, fabric (old or new), felt or construction paper, in light pink, dark(er) pink, black, the color of your eyes, white, and red. Most used would be dark(er) pink which requires a total of four circles, therefore, get 1 sq ft of each color, 2 of dark(er) pink.
Cut out two circles (3″ diameter) using dark pink, cut out two smaller circles in dark pink, two more circles smaller than the smaller circles (one black, one the color of your eyes), one more black circle (smallest of all), and one large circle in pink that measures bigger than any previous circle.
Cut out one white circle that matches in measurement of a small dark circle.
Cut out one white “V” that matches in measurement to the smallest black circle (of them all).
Cut a straight line at one edge (on each dark pink circle) so that there’s the slightest slice from a circle — Just imagine a sunrise, or sunset, when the sun is mostly showing at 95 percent. That’s what the dark pink circles should look like.
Cut out four black 1/4″ lines, two that fit across each small dark pink circles (in the center, from one side to other), and two half that size. One pair will be the eyebrows and the other defines an open eye.
Cut out one black 1″ line about a 1/4″ thick.
Cut, now here’s the tricky part, the shape of a fat umbrella with a short post in black. Somewhat like an upside down “U” with a line across the top and a stem. This shape will be part of the bear mouth. Getting to that.
The red tongue, well, just check it out!
A gray leotard, one piece bathing suit, or a tank top with thin shorts will due. Sleeves or sleeveless, strapless or spaghetti. Last minute reality check, any color should do! Walmart, K-Mart, the mall, consignment shops, G.W. Industries, yard sales, even in a closet or drawer, there may be a leotard closer Glue two large dark pink circles on chest area, one per breast, so that the slightly sliced area is facing down and hairline sideways.
As that is drying place one small dark pink circle over the white circle of same measurement. Cut 3/4 of the dark pink circle (again, see photo) so that more than half is white and less than half is dark pink when putting the pink over the white. Glue the circle that matches that of your eye color to the white circle, in the center. Glue the smallest black circle (centered) inside of the circle that is in your eye color. That’s your eye. Glue what’s left of the pink circle to the white circle, over the already glued areas, glue one of the black cut lines where the pink meets the white (to form eyelashes), and set aside. Allow some dry time.
Place each circle, line, and other shapes, as seen in the photo. Once they are placed where they should be, start gluing! Let dry overnight.
You may notice that there’s a gem, or sorts, resembling a pirate tooth. This time a glue gun can help. Just find an old piece of jewelry with a cool looking fake gem, break it off and hot glue it next to the white tooth. Pimpin’ the mouth ain’t easy! But can be done.
Wear stockings in the color that matches best with your skin.
Lipstick is a must! Try red. Any red. Whatever red you have, try it. The thicker in color, the better. Remember, Miley has bright white teeth. The color of lip stick will enhance the white teeth effect.
Eyeliner is thick. Very thick followed by a lot of mascara. Using base cover-up of light color is not a bad idea. A very fair light skin color.
Tongue tied? I would be too if I witnessed this next prop. Take a long flat long liquorice-like candy, that normally bends after being in your mouth for more than a minute, and place it inside of the mouth. Bend it to lay on your tongue. Shut your mouth and balance the candy with your teeth. Use your actual tongue to move the liquorice from side to side. Or use your own tongue. Wave the tongue in the air – like you just don’t care.
White sneakers, white platform shoes (no heels), or white shoes with white ankle socks should be used as the footwear to this costume and costume #2.
Miley Cyrus Halloween costume #2!
Make a switch of costume by changing into a skin colored sports bra, a skin colored pair of panties or bathing suit bottoms to twerk the guy you have been winking at all night.
And don’t forget the large fake finger! Just don’t use it to wipe.
What would Miley say?
To finalize this costume idea simply try to sing the words “It’s our party, we can do what we want”, take a twerk-break, “It’s our party, we can say what we want”, twerk-break, “It’s our party, we can love who we want”, again, twerk, “This is our house, this is our rules” then super-twerk. Stick out your tongue as far as you can towards your right eye, as your right eye is closed. Try not to use lipstick that smears.
Oh, and tell everyone over 40 years old that they don’t have sex anymore.
You are ready for Halloween to Twerk-Or-Tweet!
