Headless Costume

I took the idea for this headless costume from the site obviously. I thought it was a very easy yet awesome idea so I decided to do my own version of the costume.

I used the roller backpack method, which I had to destroy and just keep the structure of the handle and the straps to put it on. I taped the handle so it wouldn't come down and then put the jacket on, which I got at a thrift store along with a pair of XXXL pants to be able to pull them up all the way to my chest.

I filled up the jacket with towels and some other things to form the body and I put a red shirt right on top so it looked like a bloody neck. The hands were some gloves I stuffed with toilet paper
then I painted my face and got fake blood that I put around my lips and on my forehead. Then some baby powder on my hair so it looked gray and creepy and that was that!

It needed help to be put on and was very very uncomfortable after wearing it all night but I got lots of attention every time I walked by/in a place and everyone was telling me how fun and awesome the costume was. I didn't win the contest but I got to be a finalist

This headless costume is definitely gonna make you at least a finalist on any contest and best of all, its easy to do and not expensive at all and people it looks very real although it is kind of uncomfortable but it's worth it

Total spent: $4.00

We bought a Pittsburgh penguins jersey, $2.00, at the Thrift shop. Then we stopped at the party store and picked up two really big bowls, hot glued them together and cut the bottom out for my daughter's head to fit inside.

We used a back-lack with a board inserted and tie strapped down along with football shoulder pads(we borrowed) and finally added the shirt. We also gave my daughter a pair of my sweat pants and cut the pockets out for her arms to fit through.

for the gruesome neck I made, poured Elmer's glue on wax paper with red and blue food coloring to make it look like blood. With that I added fake spaghetti and bugs eye balls for a bloody look.

The headless Halloween costume came out so good that not only was she asked to participate in the haunted house at our campground, she took first place.

Thanks to this site where I had gotten my ideas and just built off of it

I got the idea from something similar I saw on this site for a headless Halloween costume. We used a small backpack and used an extra long telescope handle that attached to the backpack.

We secured it with a belt through the straps to around my sons torso. A swim noodle was used for the arms and a pretzel jug for the jar. We used a plug in pumpkin for the head and inserted a string of led lights. We added a skeleton mask and hood to make it extra scary. I initially had my son's face painted kinda creepy which looked really cool but it was way to much for my son, he wanted to take it all off. I think it may have scared him.

He loved having the coolest headless Halloween costume and all the attention he received!

HOW DID YOU GET THE LED LIGHTS TO WORK?

what to do with the real arms???
by: Anonymous

My guess is they used battery operated lights.. I LOVE this whole concept, but I'm unsure of my son's arms not being "out" of the costume... anyone have any suggestions?

I just bought glow stick balloons that I am putting under the mask. They also have glow sticks or battery operated lights.
