The week before a Halloween Costume Party myself and my family were still at a loss for a creative idea. I am not a fan of store bought bagged-costumes. As I was sitting in a bar one night with some friends, I grabbed a napkin and a pen and started drawing a six pack. Then it all hit me, a Corona 6-Pack Group Costume.
The creative juices started flowing. We knew we wanted to be a six pack of some type of beer but didn’t know which one. We chose Corona because it was the simplest to re-create. The colors, the lime, etc. Or so we thought. It took us an entire week, up to, and including the day of the party.
Once we bought out the entire stock of yellow felt at JoAnn Fabrics, I knew this was going to be a hit. It was all hand-crafted and painted. We (and by “we” I mean my father) put door hinges on each of the corners of the box so we could get in and out without a problem.
We were the hit of the party as soon as we walked through the door and won best costume. I think its safe to say that we did Corona proud. Now lets hope we can top it this year!
