Food costumes such as ice cream, pizza and hamburgers add a humorous touch to during celebrations or Halloween. The pickle costume is considered a tasty treat that shouldn't be ignored. It can be as entertaining as other food costumes as it is unique -- if it is made and designed properly. Whether you are making the costume for a boy, girl, adult or infant, it's fairly easy to assemble a pickle costume with very few materials.

  1. 1

    Measure the costume wearer's body from head to hip, and add an additional 8 inches to the measurement.

  2. 2

    Cut four long crescent- or football shapes as long as your measurement with sharp shears.

  3. 3

    Set the four felt pieces on a flat surface and align them side by side vertically. Glue their edges together in the form of a pickle. Leave an opening in one seam so the costume wearer can put on the outfit.

  4. 4

    Turn the costume right side out so the seams can remain hidden. Fasten any gaps or openings with safety pin when its worn.

  5. 5

    Cut out a hole large enough for the person's face, legs and arms. Make sure the cut-outs will be big enough for the person to comfortably see or fit through.

  6. 6

    Add pickle bumps to finalise the costume. Cut out 10 to 15 small circles from the light green felt. Fasten the circles with felt glue sporadically over the costume.

  7. 7

    Allow the glue to dry for at least 30 minutes before wearing the costume.
