Homemade Cryogenically Frozen Walt Disney Costume
One of the most prevalent myths about Walt Disney is that he was Cryogenically frozen after death in the hopes that one day technology would advance enough to bring him back to life.
For my Homemade Cryogenically Frozen Walt Disney Costume, I chose to create Walt Disney in his Cryogenic fridge. The fridge is made out of a box with windows cut out and fake hinges (made out of cardboard) attached. There is a hole cut out in the back of the box for my face to poke through.
I edged the windows with paper rolls to add dimensionality. The icicles hanging from the top of the box are made from aluminum foil covered in white paint, and the frosty air is made by taping polyester stuffing to the inside edges of the windows. Walt Disney's body is made of stuffed and painted newspaper, and his hand is an old glove.
I "borrowed" a tie from my father, and made Walt's shirt collar out of triangles cut from paper towels. Walt Disney's hair is made of felt stapled to the cardboard, and his mouse ears are circles cut from glitter felt and glued to the background. I covered my face in pale makeup (including my eyebrows to make them appear frosted.) The name plate is made of cardboard.

This Homemade Dr. Phil and Oprah Costume was inspired from an idea when my daughter was 9 years old and was entering a parade that was to feature her Hero's so I designed a costume for her that was half Princess Diana and half Martin Luther King, so I thought this would make a real cool costume with my favorite TV personalities, Dr Phil and Oprah!
The clothes were purchased at thrift stores, cut in half and sewn together. I cut my own hair and pasted the pieces on half of a bald cap for Dr. Phil, then cut a wig in half for Oprah's side.
The process of putting on the make-up took over 2 hours to completely finish, I did not have any help from anyone, except for borrowing a sewing machine from a friend to sew the pieces together. I really had a lot of fun making this costume and hope you enjoy it as well!
Halloween is my favorite time of the year!

This costume came across my mind when I wanted to be original. I didn't want to spend money and didn't want to be the same old "pin-up" girl who gets to show her goodies. So why not be the queen of tatas?! So I'm Tiffanny Pollard from the reality series's "Flavor of love" and "I love New York".
I had a black wig and over exaggerated eyelashes and makeup(so New York)and an apple bottom bustier and skirt out of the closet. For the accessories I put on acrylic nails and using an eye liner pencil, I wrote "Princess" on my left breast to resemble New York's tattoo. My chain was made out of a real rope chain and a cardboard chain piece reading 'I love New York'. This resembled the chains she would give the contestants when they would continue to the next round. I enjoyed this costume a lot and can't wait to see what I come up with next.

So, I'm a big fan of the obscure band The Residents. They've kept their identities hidden for over 30 years, although they've become known for their signature giant eyeball masks and tuxedos. So, this year, I decided to honor my obsession by creating my own Residents costume.
I started off with a 14" plastic globe. I widened the hole to fit my head, cut out the eye hole, sanded it and painted it white. I attached a hard hat inside, had the iris airbrushed on, and created the veins by using caulk and then spray painting it red. I topped it off with a used tux and a top hat.
The top hat is stuffed with Styrofoam and held in place by 2 large bolts.
