This Homemade Dinner for Two Head on Platter Costume was the easiest costume ever. I got every thing at the Dollar store. The blood splatter is the kind you usually put on your windows, the spiders, roaches, rats and mice were all available in the Halloween isle. Basically I got 2 boxes, 1 for the base and the other one I flattened out as the table top. I used a plain white one so the blood splatter would show and a Halloween one for the top. I glued the table cloth down and just put tons of blood splatter and creepy crawlies all over it. The cups have jello in them to look like blood. His brain is really a marshmallow brain container, I just ate the marshmallow and painted the container pink. Everything was glued down. I glued the bottom of the table cloth to the box, just so it would not flap in the wind. I set it up to look like a fancy dinner for 2 with wine glasses, candles (fake of course), flowers.

The dinner plates had a slivered finger, some fruit and either a hand or foot with the marshmallow brain. I cut holes in the front and the side just because I wasn't sure how he would collect candy, but people got a kick out of putting the candy on the plate and his hand would slid up by his face to get it.

It was great seeing some of the faces of people, it was either disgust and gross or awesome!!

I had to come up with the best costume (like I do every year), thought of what I could do too make everyone's head spin and I came up with this Head on Platter Optical Illusion Costume idea. After coming up with the concept I took all the measurements and I figured out how too make it so it would work a be at least moderately comfortable.

The construction isn't so hard, you build a table with a bottom in it but the dimensions change with the person and are very complicated. Height neck length leg length torso to neck distance.

Franky is even more complicated for him too look real you must gear the torso and neck so that the head turns twice as fast as the torso and begins turning before the torso starts. The levers are in the table so we can control Franky's movement so Frank looks at who he is talking to and moves back and forth while dancing.

Franky's voice is just an amp, i pod and speakers in the manikins head with key phrases. The harness that hooks Franky to my daughter's behind is a homemade contraption that just works.

After I had made it the illusion was way more than I even expected and the reaction even better. Built it all from home depot value village and a mask that I had too do a bit of latex work on too make it just right.

My daughter is in the second picture.

This homemade server and human platter couple costume was really fun and easy to make.

As the table we used a large card-board box, with a hole cut out of the middle for the head. We then took off the two sides, which were at each side of the hips, so the arms could be loose and comfortable. Then we added a plastic table cloth from the dollar store and started placing plastic food, cutlery and cups that were all stuck on with double sided to act as a set dinner table. We placed real lettuce around the head on a plastic platter, and painted my face as if I was dead.

The server was dressed as a cook/ waiter, including a white coat, apron, chef hat and a food cover, that was placed over the head when approached to doors.

This costume was a big hit, and was enjoyed by many!
