Little Red Riding Hood walked through the woods to her Grandmother’s house and came across The big Bad Wolf in her Grandmother’s Bed.
What big ears you have Grandma!
(The mask was made from a paper plate formed into a nose, ears and forehead and was attached to a stocking cap covered in fake fur and felt.)
What big teeth you have Grandma!!!
(The mouth was also made from a paper plate attached to a headband. Teeth were made from homemade clay painted with fingernail polish.)
Luckily the Wolf didn’t have an appetite for the little girl tonight!
(Little Red’s Outfit: Cape made out of 1.5 yd of red fabric. Dingle balls for trim. Skirt made out of a tablecloth folded in half and trimmed with hunk of blue fabric w/ a sweet design made by the sewing machine. Vest made out of left-over yellow fabric laced with nylon rope. Necklace: a heart cutout of Little Red’s real Grandmother.)
The Big Bad Wolf was still a scary looking creature though.
(Legs: Jeans covered by fur to the knees. Feet: Shoes covered by fur plus homemade claws. Arms: Fur to the elbow attached to a modified nightie. Hands: Knitted gloves covered with fur and homemade claws. Back: big hole cut out of nightie to make night cap. Hole filled with fur and plugged with a tail out of fur and a coat hanger. Neck: cut off turtle-neck covered with fur.)
Big Bad and Little Red in their cool homemade couple costume decided it would be better if they would just get along. So, they made their way to party after party and scared a few little kids.
