A casino that we often go to was holding a costume contest and the grand prize was a thousand dollars. I was pregnant at the time so we wanted to come up with something original, not the same ol “bun in the oven” thing.
So my husband is very crafty and he came up with the Homemade Bingo Costume. It went well with the theme of the casino. He made the bingo card out of Styrofoam, insulation board, and painted all the lettering on. He made the bingo dobber out of a cardboard tube and painted the pictures on it, took him FOREVER!
He strapped the tube to my back using bungee cord and painted my belly to be the tip of the dobber.
We won first place! And had so much fun!
I got many compliments on our creativity and unique idea.
Cant wait to do the contest again this year!
