It’s no secret that one of the top costumes this year will undoubtedly be Miley’s infamous VMA ensemble. If you want to rock her look with out dishing out the dough for a professional costume you have come to the right place! Follow this super simple DIY tutorial and WOW all your friends with your stylin’ disguise.
To make this costume you will need markers, safety pins, shipping tape, and a leotard. I used a black vintage swimsuit I found at a thrift shop and painted it silver with some cheap craft paint, but any color leo should suffice.
Just follow these 3 simple steps & you’ll have a fabulous costume!
Step 1: Save & print the Miley Cyrus Bear Template attached below and trace the lines with a thick black marker. Once the black portion of the photo has been colored in, color the rest of the bear. The circles for the bear ears are not included in the template. To make them, simply trace the top of two pint glasses and color in!
Step 2: Cut the individual pieces out and laminate with self lamination or shipping tape. This adds to the durability of the costume and helps when adhering the face to the leo. I found it was easier to laminate first, and then cut out the individual images, but do which ever suits you best.
Step 3: Using safety pins carefully pin each piece to the leotard. You can also hot glue pin backs to the laminated images for a more polished look.
Step 4: Rock it! Throw on your keds, add some blingin accessories, and don’t forget the red lipstick!!! For added dramatic effect do you doo like she does and rock her signature facial expression. BEWARE: You Will Feel Ridiculous!
