This past weekend London and I had planned for the ultimate La Croix costume flavor throw down — Coconut vs. Pamplemousse. Unfortunately, London ended up being too sickly to go out, so I ended up just being a single La Croix.
I love a good creative, inexpensive costume. We probably spent around ~$20 total for this costume. And I feel like we caught this right on the cusp of the La Croix trend.
What you need:
For the shirt:
- Oversized Tshirt — H&M had some great men’s long tee’s that were perfect for this! I bought taupe and London got a dusty rose color
- Metallic acrylic paints
- Cheap paint brushes and/or sponge applicator
- Iron-on transfer sheets (we used these— came with 5 sheets for dark material– and they worked great!)
- Printer and iron (duh)
For the headband:
- Silver headband — the metal material of this one (also from H&M) matched
- Can tab
- Hot glue gun
- Start by painting the back of the t-shirt first. We followed the same design as the front of the La Croix cans, sans the logo. Let dry overnight.
- Print the La Croix logo onto transfer paper. I took the logo and separated it into “La” and “Croix” since the cans have a stacked logo but the La Croix logo is horizontal. “La” and “Croix” each received their own transfer sheet (4 sheets total for 2 costumes).
- I also found a font that’s similar to the can flavor font (Comfortaa). I typed out the flavor names and picked up the dark blue color of the La Croix logo. We shared a transfer sheet for “coconut” and “pamplemousse.”
- Cut the designs on the transfer sheet, leaving some white around. The transfer sheets we used do not require you to mirror the image when you print
