This Oct. 31, lazy girls everywhere will sigh with relief thanks to this simple DIY costume. It's perfect for last-minute preparations or office Halloween parties. Drawing inspiration from Snapchat's facial recognition filters — specifically, the adorable puppy duo that took the world by storm in 2016 — we've dreamed up a real-life version of social media's latest craze. Try it by yourself or with a friend; this easy costume idea is perfect for any situation.
How to Create It Yourself
If you want to bring your favorite Snapchat filter to life, you'll need:
- Several colors of felt
- Wooden kebab skewers or popsicle sticks
- Wardrobe (or skin-friendly) tape
- Hot glue gun
To achieve the puppy filter, simply create felt cutouts of puppy ears and features using a Snapchat selfie for reference. Attach the ears to your headbands, then attach the puppy nose to your own using wardrobe tape. Hold up a felt puppy tongue using a small wooden stick, and voila! You've brought Snapchat into the real world.
