I came up with this Tornado Costume because of my daughter's un-ending energy we call her "Hurricane Kelly" and since a hurricane would be very difficult to properly portray I gave her the tornado option.
I made the framework for this from a decreasing helix of thin wire fencing then chicken wire all trimmed and rounded (to avoid the pokeys) then wrapped the framework in Halloween spiderwebbing. Gray helical spray paint give the "spinning" look and adjustable sports bag straps over her shoulders give the right position. I used mini LED "rice" lights to enhance the spin look at night and miniature fence railing/cows/etc.from a hobby store to make the "debris".
On Halloween night her mom put white streaks in her hair and made it stand up in all directions.
Homemade Authentic Catholic School Uniform Costume
by James C
(Philadelphia, PA USA)
Priscylla Krystal James in the flesh
What would happen if a first grade student was exposed (accidentally) to radiation and grew to twice the size of an average first grade student? This was my therory when I decided on this Halloween costume, a clever disguise naming myself Priascylla Krystal James, the biggest first grade student in the history of St. Dominic Parochial School.
The simplicity of the outfit - a blue plaid girls' jumper, light blue long sleeve Peter Pan collared blouse, navy blue knee high socks with saddle shoes (dyed in navy blue to match school uniform regulations) - along a with reddish carrot wig and matching headband as well as a pair of glasses, makes this a fun costume to wear for Halloween in 2010.
This Homemade Mamogram Machine Costume was a last ditch attempt at a semi decent, funny costume. I had 15 minutes before I left for a party and was freaking out. Luckily, due to the wonders of TV, I heard a breast cancer ad and *bing* a light went on in my brain.
All I used was a decent sized cardboard box, some tin foil and a piece of cardboard for the sign. Also a cape but that was because I was a breast checking superhero, Mamogram man.
Lads, all I'll say is that it REALLY works wonders. Hope everyone enjoys this costume as much as I did.
These costumes were made by my very intelligent grandmother. She looked online and found pictures of the characters and decided it was a good idea.She made the Santa outfit around Christmas and the Sulley costume around Halloween.We always take pictures in the costumes but found this contest a great opportunity to take part in.The costumes are made from polyester and took 2 months to make.The costumes are very well made and in a very good condition
This Homemade Military Costume is my first attempt at making a military costume. I think it came out really good. I bought all the stuff separate and put it together myself. The helmet is a WWII liner with 60s shell original. The bars are original Vietnam bars and the musette bag is WWII. Everything else is reproduction. It is a the patch on the right 66th tank destroyers and the rank is a sergeant.
