Ghostbuster Costumes Made with Cricut!

Last year for Halloween my hubby and I dressed as Ghostbusters. There's a new Ghostbuster movie on the horizon, so this is the perfect time to create some Ghostbusting merch. Make a shirt...or DIY the entire costume. Can't wait for this reboot!

Last year for Halloween my hubby and I dressed as Ghostbusters. There's a new Ghostbuster movie on the horizon, so this is the perfect time to create some Ghostbusting merch. Make a shirt...or DIY the entire costume. Can't wait for this reboot!

This effective costume was super simple and put together in just a few minutes thanks to Cricut! My Cricut machine is worth its weight in gold, seriously...I love it. I work with Cricut, but will remain a loyal customer forever. Here's everything you need to know before buying a Cricut!

How to make a last minute Ghostbusters Halloween costume or cosplay using the Cricut Maker and Iron-on vinyl.

This little ghostbuster logo is iconic and most likely has a copyright, so do not make these to sell. Whip one up for loyalty to the show and excitement for more merchandise. Make a killer cosplay to wear to the fandom convention. Let's get started!

We got these tan jumpsuits when a local business was cleaning out their extra stock. They instantly said Ghostbusters and they worked perfect!

Cricut Iron-on vinyl in Red, White and Black (I used glittery red for mine)

Alright, and of course, you need the logo:

I've separated it into 3 colors. Right click to save off each image or download them to your phone. They are all png files, so they are easy to import into Cricut Design Space.

This image needs to be cut out in black:

This is the white ghost layer:

And finally, this one is the red layer:

Big Ghostbusters Logo for Back of Jumpsuit:

Load them into CDS and change the colors. Line them up to make sure they fit. When sizing the image, select all 3 of them at the same time to keep the ratios the same. Then place the iron-on vinyl on the cutting mat with the shiny side down, mirror the image and cut out each one.

After they are cut, weed out the excess iron-on. When they are flipped over, they are going the right direction.

Stack up the layers of iron-on carefully with the white on the bottom, red in the middle and black on top.

Then place them on the back of the shirt or jumpsuit. Remove the top 2 layers, leaving just the white ghost body behind.

Now use the EasyPress to press the iron-on. Check this guide for the recommended settings.

Lift off the EasyPress and let the shirt cool. Then peel off the plastic carrier sheet. Then layer on the vinyl again, this time, just the red layer.

Cover with a protective sheet or teflon, then press again.

Again, wait for it to cool, remove the plastic carrier sheet and place the black outline iron-on on top. Then press a final time. Let it cool and remove the plastic carrier sheet. It's done! If you are doing just a shirt, this is all you need to do...or take it a step further!

Small Ghostbusters Logo for Sleeve on Jumpsuit:

Now add any other details you desire. I decided to add the ghostbusters logo to the sleeve and a name patch to the front. I resized the logo and cut 2 small ones out of each layer color. 

Then I created a black rectangle in CDS and added text names and cut them out as well.

Repeat the iron on process for the ghostbusters logo on the sleeve, but this time, the EasyPress Mini makes it so simple!

Just 3 little layers of iron-on to create the perfect Ghostbusters logo.

Name Patch for Front of Jumpsuit:

Now press the black iron-on on the front of the jumpsuit or shirt on the top left pocket area.

Again, using the EasyPress Mini is so simple, but any size of EasyPress would work great. I do not recommend irons--they just do not get evenly hot or hot enough to make a good press. It's a waste of materials, although I did it for years.

Layer on the name and press again.

I picked Spengler for myself, because I'm the nerdy/smart one...and of course Venkman for my husband, because he's the main guy. But go ahead and get your crew together and make Stantz and Zeddemore too!
