Homemade DIY Jupiter Halloween Costume

My son wanted to be Jupiter this year due to his huge craving for space, so we went ahead and made a DIY Jupiter Halloween Costume.

Step one was to buy a large beach ball. Then take flour and water and strips of paper ( we went to the local newspaper company and they had 'end rolls" for $1) and layered the beach ball really well with many layers. Homemade paper mache. Let dry for a couple days & drill a hole 2 days later on top to let inside dry.

Once dried, I then measured out the diameter of my son's neck, arms and torso to make circles, top- side & bottom and cut out circles with knife.
Cut the ball with a sharp knife down it's middle for two halves. Painted to look like Jupiter and glazed with Modge Podge.

Drilled sew holes at the meeting points of the two halves and hand sewed Velcro tabs to make for easy connect (two at top above arms-shoulders and two sides below arms on bottom).

Then a finished product. Sorry didn't take too many pictures.

My son told his teacher that he wanted to be Planet Jupiter for Halloween. His teacher came up to me and asked me if he was going to be Jupiter. I had no idea he wanted to be that. That day Jason came up to me and said "Mommy I want to be planet Jupiter for Halloween".

I decided to purchase the costume, didn't have any idea that on one in the entire world makes it. I searched and searched, no luck, because I told my son Jason that it was ok that he can be planet Jupiter and made a promise. I had no choice but to make it!

This Planet Jupiter DIY Costume with Skinny Ring was a challenge, but was able to make it,also glows in the dark. He was so happy that it was worth the work. Here he is with the costume on!
What do you think?

How did you get the ball out of the paper mâché? Did you have to deflate it? I want to make more than one.
