Looking for an easy, inexpensive, do it yourself costume?
One of the funniest, and easiest costumes that I have ever seen, was the costume that my sister wore to a college Halloween party. The costume was “Partly cloudy with a chance of rain.”
This is a costume that will work for anyone, any age, and can be put together with household items that you already own.
Read below for the instructions of how to make the Partly cloudy with a chance of rain costume.
Creating the Costume
One of the things that makes this costume so great is that it can be put together quickly, with simple ingredients that you already own or can get easily. You also can buy the entire costume for very little money. If you need to purchase adhesive, or the cotton balls or cotton batting for the clouds, JoAnn’s Fabrics is the best resource locally or online.

How to Create the Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Rain Costume
A great costume for both children and adults, Partly Cloudy with a Chance of Rain is a favorite of college students because it is so easy to make and fun to wear.
Begin by taking your scrubs or sweats, and either dot the fabric with a hot glue gun or attach pieces of velcro around the top and pants of the outfit. Then place bunches of cotton balls or cotton batting on the scrubs or sweats on the glue or velcro to represent the clouds.
Next fill your spritzer with water. This is your chance of rain.
Some people also make a hat out of the cotton to wear with the costume.
Pick up the umbrella.
You are ready to go to your nearest Halloween party.
Here are some pictures of people wearing this costume.
When you are wearing the costume at a party, you can spritz people.
You can add face make up if you want, but the thing that makes this costume so great is that you do not have to add make up.
