My son and I Tommy from Louisville, KY decided to get real creative this year. We built a zombie referee carrying a peewee football player. We built it mostly out of Styrofoam and PVC pipe, all stuffed into a back pack. I referee football so the uniform shirt, pants, flag, whistle, socks, hat and shoes was very easy to come by. The helmet shoulder pads and pants were all donated from a local little league.
The jersey is my old High school practice jersey. We found a zombie mask at a Halloween store for $45.00. That was over half the cost of the whole costume. We then added Blue LED lights inside the mask to light up the zombie’s eyes. We then stuffed around the PVC frame with Batting material that you use to stuff pillows.
It took us about 10 hours to complete and around $75.00 total. We had a ball and it was great to see the response from the neighborhood. There were numerous people throughout the night that asked to have their picture taken with him, or just to take a picture of him for them selves to enjoy.
