Every year in October I’m faced with the same dilemma; pulling together a costume for some type of Halloween related party or event. I know there are tons of commercial costumes available at the stores and online, but between the cost, and lack of imagination, and the fact you end up with a half dozen people all looking the same at a party, I often like to go the homemade route. This year I decided to go with a homemade iPod Touch costume.

Here’s what I used to construct:

Here’s the steps I took to create:

  1. Using Word, I created an app icon template to layout the artwork for printing. Download Template
  2. Locate each app for the t-shirt in the iTunes store.
  3. Use Skitch to grab a 183×183 copy of the app icon.
  4. Drag the artwork from Skitch into Word template.
  5. Format artwork in Word to be approximately 2.33″ x 2.33″
  6. Print Word Doc on Avery Transfers
  7. Cut and trim app icons
  8. Layout apps on t-shirt
  9. Iron on individual app cutouts
  10. Wash t-shirt inside out before wearing
