My friends and I decided to be the Jamaican Bobsled Team.  We took 1st place !!!  This was the very easy to make.  We used posterboard / Duck tape for the Bobsled.  We used Duck tape to create our cosutmes.  We purchase our hats/wigs off from ebay which were appr. $5.00.  We live in a small town in Upstate, NY.  Everyone Loved our Costume!!   We later end up meeting the daughter and son of the actual Jamaican Bobsled Coach (that John Candy played in the movie) .  We had a great night, great reaction and as I said earlier we took 1st place !!
