Marge Simpson Costume - Halloween 2013

Updated on July 23, 2013

Becoming one of the most memorable TV characters

If you would wake me up in the middle of the night and ask me who are some of the most memorable female characters from TV shows of all time one of the first answers would be Marge Simpson, no doubt about that. She is pretty awesome.

I think dressing up as her for Halloween or at any fancy dress party is fun! You can get the costume online or you can make your own Marge Simpson costume at home.

I was Marge when I was a teen, I made my own costume (well my mother helped with the sewing) but for the fun of it I dressed up as her again today and I am going to share some of the tips to help you create the perfect look.

Marge Simposon Costume for Women (with wig)

The Official one,

What I like the most about this costume (apart for the colors being as they are in the animated series) is the fact the dress isn't strapless. I always feel a bit uncomfortable when wearing strapless dresses and am always pulling them up as I fear they are too low and I would show something I don't want too.

The costume also comes with her necklace and most importantly - blue wig.

DIY Marge Simpson Costume - Sharing some ideas and tips

I made my Marge Simpson eyes using old costume glasses (I think they were from Austin Powers) and white cardboard. I drew the outline of the eyes, cut them, drawn the details (forgot the lashes), cut out small holes for me to see and glued the eyes onto the glasses.

I used a pair of red pink (something in between) flats I bought in New Yorker (a budget friendly shop for young people), I paid less than $5 for them and they serve their purpose (I use them for dress ups).

Now to the necklace! I bought extra large paper beads and painted them red (you can see the finished product on a photo of me in the costume).

Whenever possible I do make my body paint at home - it's pretty easy and it is quite durable. You mix body cream, corn starch (or baby powder) and food coloring and apply it on your body. Your body color will look even better than mine - this mixture works best with creams such as Nivea (your regular all purpose body cream) but I am a bit allergic to those, well to most body and face creams and I can only use marigold cream for the face which is hard to mix with corn starch.

Posing As Marge Simpson - My very own costume!

The dress is made out of fleece blanket. I had my mother (again) help me as I do admit I am not all that good when it comes to sewing.

I made the wig just for this photo shoot - I do recommend getting the actual wig for your costume as this wasn't stable enough to wear around. But just in case if you are wondering what I did; I used an old winter hat and stuffed it with some fabric to give it structure. For the hair I used blue curlers.

Marge Simpson Wig

If yo do decide to make your own costume (it's always fun and way more unique) I do advise you get a wig though. Unless you have an idea on how to make one that won't be falling off - I would love to hear from you in the comments if you do.

I think this wig will work perfectly for Marge, it's blue, it's tall, it's curly.
