I saw the original Homemade Headless Boy Costume on this website a couple of years ago. My son wanted to do it so I thought we'd add our own touches.

1. I found an old tshirt of my son's and hot glued the shoulder areas to a long piece of cardboard.

2. I then glued a standard sized pillowcase to the other side of the cardboard to add some fullness to the back of the costume.

3. I got a black trench coat and put that over the shirt made cardboard piece.

4. For the jar I cut the bottom and the back pieces out. I also cut a chunk of the jar lid so the air could get into the jar better.

5. I found some bloody hands at the halloween store and attched those to the trench coat. I stuffed the sleeves of the trench coat with newspaper.

6.I positioned the jar where I wanted and attached the arms the way I liked to the jar. There are many different ways to do this. Hot glue works great for this project.

7. I made the bloody stump from styra foam, painted it and added the fake blood. My son got some scar tattoos and we added those to his face with some fake blood.

My son loved the costume and said it was very comfy. He won 1st place in the costume contest!

We got the headless girl costume idea from this site. My daughter loved it. So we set off to make it. This was the easiest and cheapest costume I have ever made. I set out to thrift stores to find a dress. When I got the dress home I got a rolling backpack and duck taped a pillow to the top. I then cut off the rest of the backpack so that only the top of it and the armholes were left. I stuffed it into the dress and used more cotton to form the body. I purchased hands at a Halloween store and stuffed them into the sleeves with cotton to make the arms.

I then cut a hole in the dress for my daughters head. The hands were fastened around her head with safety pins. The neck of the headless girl costume was made with a sour cream container paper mache, paint and melted crayons. She won a Halloween contest and was also stopped on the streets for pictures. She looked awesome. Total spent $15 on hands and dress.

We got the idea online for our Homemade Headless Girl Costume so we went down to the local Goodwill and bought a roll around child's back pack, a black dress and gloves for all less then 10 bucks. Then we cut the back pack part off and lifted the handle and glued it up then hot glued a clothes hanger to the top then slide the dress over it and stuffed it with an old pillow. Then we tried it on to see where to cut the hole for the head. Once the hole was cut we stuffed the arms and gloves then hot glued them right under the head.

And now for the neck, we took a 2 liter drink bottle and cut it then covered it with paper mache then did little paper mache balls and glued them to the top to give it the gut look and covered it with fake blood.

This is my Headless Woman Costume. I got the idea from your website and I wanted to be different from everyone else on Halloween. Everyone was impressed with it and thought that it was scary. I won the best costume prize too.

To do it I used like an old camping backpack and I attached BUBBLERAPP on two steel bars for the arms. Then I just made an little hole where I could take out my head. And the fake blood I bought in a local store and the old dress was my moms.

I'm 13 and I enjoyed this headless costume, so I hope that you will to!
