This idea came from the abducted by an alien costume. I had bought some masks, and skeleton gloves on clearance and didn't know what I was going to do with them. When I saw the idea for the abducted by an alien costume, I tried to come up with something similar and this is what I came up with.
First I used an old book bag so he could carry this costume around. I stuffed the mask with news paper and tape until it had the shape of a head then I used one piece of PVC piping to support the body of the monster. I used a hot glue gun to melt in two holes on the sides of the PVC pipe. Once I had made the 2 holes then I put metal wiring through the pipe to make the shape of the shoulders and hands.
To give the wire the thickness needed to look like real shoulders I covered the wiring with foam pool noodles I had bought on clearance. Once I had the shape of the body I attached the head to the PVC pipe with hot glue. I then took the book bag, made a hole on the top of the book bag and put the PVC pipe inside. To avoid the PVC pipe from leaning to the sides I held the PVC pipe right in the middle of the book bag and marked and made holes on the book bag and then I secured it with plastic straps.
Once my son had the book bag on, I covered him and the monster with dark fabric.
I am a grade 12 student and my school always gets dressed and we have costume contests. I was thinking of what to be for Halloween as I wanted to do something that I had not seen at my school in all the years that I have been there.
I made my costume out of cardboard, duck tape and a glue gun. I found an old mask I had from when I was younger and used a trench coat that I found in the closet.
I began making my costume on Wednesday night which was two days before Halloween and I finished the night before. It took me almost 4-5 hours to find everything and put it all together. I had to build a spine and back for the fake monster that sat on my back and I mounted the cardboard body on my shoulders like a backpack. I then put the trench coat on the fake body and filled the arms and attached a cardboard table that I made around my neck. My Head was showing with some fake blood on a plate and my legs acted as the legs to the monster with the fake body.
A lot of people thought my costume was awesome and creative!
I spent time contemplating on what I was going to be this year, then it hit me! I was originally going to be just a simple headless teen, then I had a great idea for a monster carrying baby costume. I decided to attach a monster mask to the top. Then I got a baby outfit and voila!
Hope you like it, thanks!
