This year, as with every year, my roommate and I made our costumes entirely out of duct-tape and cardboard. I decided on a Blood Angel Space Marines costume and for effect, the mask has functioning fans, LEDs, and there is a flash bulb inside the barrel of the bolter(gun).

This whole project took about a month, and required 8 rolls of various colored tapes, as well as 5 batteries, 12 LEDs, 2 40mm computer fans, ski boots, and lots of time. There are various aspects that you can't see, such as the purity seals on the sides, but I am happy with the way this picture looks.

I have created this costume to celebrate my love for the game Warhammer 40k, and also because I am a huge nerd. Every year my roomie and I create a new costume, that consists largely of ductape and cardboard, and this year we went all out.

There is no way to accurately describe how to make this, as I mostly just bent cardboard to shape and taped it up, but for the mask, I used a large bike helmet as a base, and then built from there. Once I had an outline, I continued to bulk it out until I eventually got it to the shape I wanted. I then stole a tube off a vacuum cleaner and installed it on the side, to create the working vents. I then installed LEDs into the eyes.

Coolest Pet Shop Toy Costume

My daughter desperately wanted to be a Pet Shop Mouse for Halloween, and after searching and searching the internet for such a costume, I came to the realization that I would have to figure this one out on my own.

I started my Pet Shop Toy Costume with a punch-ball balloon and blew it up to it's largest size. I paper mached the balloon with five layers of newspaper. After layer number 3, I attached two paper plates for the ears using tape and glue. I then covered the ears with paper mache while completing the layers on the head.

Using white fleece I covered the head and ears, and I tucked extra material into the head to keep it secure and stop it from wobbling around. The nose is made of fleece that is cut in a circle and stuff with stuffing. It is hot glued to the head. The eyes were made from fun foam. The ears have pink felt inside.

The costume itself is a simple pant and sweatshirt pattern made with the same white felt material as the head. I cut a pink tail out of fleece and hot-glued it to the back of the sweathshirt and added grey fleece to the front and presto! Instant Pet Shop Mouse.

We got a TON of compliments and lots of requests to make more for the next Halloween from all of her friends.

My Homemade Toy Store Costume design is for a human toy store. That's right, not a knock-off of Toy Story the movie, but rather an actual toy store on wheels...er...feet. Take a look. I hope you like my entry!

While I have uploaded some photos, I am most proud of the home video I made that represents my costume from idea to reality in a fun and entertaining way.

Ainsley definitely has a career in public speaking. She is also a good teacher. Maybe she could have her own show on the HGTV network.

Best costume
by: Marcia Hill

What a creative idea! I think Ainsley should definitely win this contest because of how creative she is and how well she did her tutorial. She most definitely should get her own DIY show!

You sure have my vote, Ainsley!

VERY CUTE AND ORIGINAL!

She is ADORABLE! I would watch her TV show (if she had one...). Cute idea, very original. I think you should WIN!
