Almost all the summer YL camps I go to have a day when you have a cabin unity competition that encourages matching cabin uniforms. For some of us, we are running around the day before camp trying to pull something together. I have an idea… Let’s make list of as many as we can think of and then I will re-post these before camp next summer to remind us all of some options.
To get you thinking, here are a couple I’ve seen recently…
- Braveheart (kilts, face paints, etc)
- Where’s Waldo (striped shirts and glasses)
- That crazy thing with balloons stuffed in panty hose that are worn as a hat (know what I’m talking about?)
- Nerds with shirts (dollar store dress shirts with ties and nerd glasses, briefcases if possible)
There are a ton more. What have you seen? List as many as you can!

Joker from “The Dark Knight” – easy because all you need is the makeup. A lot of makeup.
We just took our girls to Lost Canyon, and we dressed up as “Fake Bakers”
Worked really well, just take orange facepaint ($4.95 at any costume store)
and tin foil
paint faces bright orange (around crazy sunglasses of course.and tan with the tin foil sheilds!
what a bright idea!
Just got back from Saranac, there were some good ones – pizza delivery guys with pizza boxes and drawn on mustaches, braveheart, shirts and ties, pirates, edward cullen fan club (for guys!), boy scouts and girl scouts, beauty queens, hillbillys,camo dudes. Good times, good times, , , ,
We like to try and have entire area unity outfits if possible. Brings the guys and girls together. We’ve done…
-300 Theme or gladiator/roman solider
We saw a group do this and so we also did it with our kids and it was a hit.
-Girls made togas out of sheets. Silver duct tape for belts, arm bands and accessories, greenery vines stuck in hair
-Guys had tin foil turkey pans for shields, toy swords, red sponge, red basketball shorts, sharpie drawn on abs, cut helmets out of small waste baskets and use a sponge for the top fan.
-Red material capes for everyone
Super Mario Brothers
Guys were Mario and Luigi, Girls princesses with a few other characters included
-Guys bring a red or green tee shirt. Round up some overalls. You can buy black felt that is sticky on one side and cut out moustaches. Bring some plungers to accessorize. Red and green baseball hats. Cut out white circles with “M” or “L” written on them to put on the hats.
-Girls: round up tutu’s if you can. Or use cheap pink party sreamers and duct tape to make shirts. Buy cheap plastic crowns and have girls bring a pink tee shirt.
-We added a yellow star (cut out of cardboard with face drawn on like the video game). The duck/turtle character (used trash can lid for shell, found duct visor at Michael’s). And toadstool- guy wearing white basketball shorts, green vest. Find a white umbrella and add red felt dots to make a mushroom top. We duct taped it to the kid and made him run around with the umbrella on his head. VERY funny.
-cheap white housekeeping/cleaning gloves to wear for all.
And something edgy with the current day is fun as last summer we did do Hilary and Obama. Ridiculous I know…
-Someone donated actual rubber masks of Hilary and Obama and we just picked up some old skirts from Goodwill and old button up shirts and ties to go along with them. GREAT reaction.
Good times indeed!
This post should be re-posted. Good stuff!
Someone needs to do Angry Birds. Dress up as some birds, some pigs. Epic.
I am doing angry birds and the leaders are going to be the pigs!!! what a grand idea!
Now is a GREAT time to ask any crafty committee ladies to help make anything you might need! Doesn’t need to be extravagant. Asking them to help make something simple like a cape, tu-tu’s or anything! All Christmas stuff is on clearance right now at JoAnn’s or any craft store. Grabbing some fabric and having our committee make some Christmas scarves (very simple ones) out of the clearance Christmas fabric will save us a ton of hassle come this summer when we need Christmas stuff for the last night at Woodleaf.
Our area did angry birds last year! Can send you the directions on how to make perfect angry bird pigs if you want! it only took us about 80 giant umbrellas! 🙂
Yes, send them our way or just post them here!
