In college, we would always have “Tour de Franzia” parties when Lance Armstrong would race, so the nights were filled with a lot of boxed Franzia wine. Being a sentimental person, I decided to incorporate this into a holiday.

My Homemade Boxed Wine Costume was made out of a large cardboard box, covered in paper and then I drew and colored all of the artwork. I wore a camel pack that was actually filled with Franzia wine, and the spout actually dispensed real wine to anyone who wanted it. So, everyone at the party would come up to me with their cups and just fill them up whenever they wanted. It was a huge hit.
