DIY Sriracha Costume

I’m a big fan of sriracha and not just because it seems to be the hipster condiment of choice these days.  I’ve always loved hot sauces and spicy things and I think sriracha has just the perfect blend of heat and flavor. It makes great roasted pumpkin seeds and kale chips. So for a last minute halloween costume I decided to be the rooster sauce itself.

I used my Silhouette to cut out a sriracha shirt design I made. I already had the white heat transfer vinyl, so I just had to pick up a red t-shirt at the craft store (for only $2.50) and two sheets of green craft foam (for $.99 each).

Download the free Silhouette sriracha design file to create your own costume!

Don’t have a Silhouette? Download the PDF and use the white and red version with iron-on transfer paper to create a similar costume or use the black and white version as a template and use white fabric paint to paint the design.

To be completely honest, I think I may wear this shirt to the gym. Is that too weird?

I created the bottle cap by folding a piece of craft foam into a cone and gluing the seams with a hot glue gun. I trimmed the cone to make it look more like a party hat then I glued a strip of foam about 5″ tall all the way around the hat to create the bottom part of the cap.

I used bobby pins to keep the hat on my head but you could also attach an elastic string to the sides and wear it like a party hat.

    Super cute! I kind of want a sriracha shirt in my wardrobe now. It’d be the perfect top for casual days.

    This is seriously the BEST and most creative costume I’ve seen this year. KUDOS.

    How do I get to have a silhouette print out version? I love your shirt! This year I’m working on Halloween (I’m a server) and my managers tell me that we need a costume. This is perfect!

    Thinking about making this costume this year using your PDF. But does the artwork need to be flipped when printed on the iron transfer paper so that the text on the shirt reads correctly?

      I was wondering the same question.. if you need to flip the design or how you would go about doing that.

        Yes, you will need to flip the image. You can do this in the printer settings on your computer.

      Yes, you will need to mirror, or flip the image before you print it.

    What colored pants did you wear? Even the shoes?

      Red tights and white shoes but if you have red shoes too that would look great!

    They sell Sriracha shirts at Target in the men’s section. The small and medium are not too big for women

    Will this silhouette fit on a 6 month onesie?

      I think the cut areas would be too small. I would recommend using the printable version and doing an iron-on transfer instead.

    My daughter has been asking for a sriracha costume for Halloween and this is hands-down the best diy on the internet – love it! The link for the Silhouette design is no longer active – is there another way to access it? Thanks for the inspiration!
