This year we decided to dress up at the Flintstones. Fred’s costume was made out of orange, black and blue fleece. It was sewn together and the tie was tied around his neck like a regular neck tie. Fred carried around a bowling ball… it was made out of a styrofoam ball and painted blue.
Wilma’s costume was made from white fleece and orange hairspray was used to resemble Wilma’s hair color. White mushed Styrofoam balls were strung together to make a necklace.
Barney’s sack was made from brown felt and a piece of black string for the chest.
Pebbles and Bam Bam’s costume was actually made out of old t-shirt (because that is what we had and it didn’t cost any money). They were sewn together to make a shirt and a pair of shorts. The black pebbles were made for felt and hot glued on. The bones were made from toilet paper rolls and Styrofoam. They were taped together and then painted. Pebbles skirt was also made from the black felt. She also had Styrofoam balls necklace and earrings. Cute legwarmers for Pebbles were made from the scrap pieces of the t-shirt and the hat for Bam Bam was made from the t-shirt sleeve. Bam Bam’s bat was made from a thunder stick (the one’s from basketball games) and it was wrapped in brown paper. Bam Bam went around hitting people all night. We did have an extra friend in our group. We had her dress as a cave women.
Finally… our awesome car was made from cardboard, metersticks, and white fabric. Circles of cardboard was cut out and slid onto a meterstick (about 5). Then we wrapped white fabric around it. We made 2 of them. The sides were cut out of cardboard. The canopy was made from cardboard and was reinforced with the metersticks on the inside. The wheels were held together with large screws and bolts and the canapy slid into slots on the inside of the car.
The party we went to only had a single door. So it was transported totally taken apart. The base was assembled in the parking lot and then the canopy slid in place after we walked through the door. It was the hit of the party.
