I got all of the materials at either the thrift store or the hardware store for this Flying Carpet Rider Costume. I started by cutting a hole in the carpet, then nailing it to a wooden frame. I made the frame a little shorter than the carpet so that it would ‘ripple.’
I then cut a hole in the butt of a pair of pants so that the legs would rest on top of the carpet, which I then stuffed with plastic grocery bags to make legs. I stapled the pants around the hole in the carpet so that it looked like the pants were ‘sitting’ on the carpet. The whole thing is held up with suspenders.
