We came up with the idea to be the crew from the movie Forrest Gump. We started with finding a wheel chair at a local nursing home and fixing it to where the legs could not be very well seen. Many people actually thought he was an amputee.
We then had to decide which Forrest and which Jenny from the movie we would be. We thought the ping pong Forrest was the most creative. Jenny from the wedding scene was a difficult task. We were able to find an old wedding dress at a local Goodwill. Bubba had to use make up to color himself and found an army suit from a friend.
Finding a wig for momma Gump was also difficult but I think we found the perfect one and other pieces of her costume from local thrift stores.
Our Homemade Forrest Gump Crew Costume was a huge hit at all the costume contests we attended.
