Hello, my name is Laura, I’m a senior in high school, and I make crazy costumes for my school’s spirit week and for Halloween. This was for Caveman Day at my school, so I was fire.
The costume: Actually, this was one of the easiest costumes I have ever made, and certainly one of my favorites. All I did was find an old red turtleneck and a red pair of sweats pants I didn’t mind ruining. Then I bought LOTS of streamers in red, orange and yellow and red orange and yellow glitter streamers. From there, I cut strips of streamers in different sizes and used glue gun to glue streamers over every part of the pants and shirt.
My Hair: This was a fun part. I bought a dozen helium balloons the day of the costume. Then, I separated my hair into 12 different pieces. Next, I got a bit of help. Using rubber bands, I had my mom attach the tips of each hair group to the bottom of one of the balloons so that my hair floated up into the air! (Make sure you put on the costume before attaching the balloons.)
Finally, I painted my face with fiery colors and was done!
