Coolest Homemade Giraffe Costume

I had been watching America’s Next Top Model a lot and apparently having a long neck is an asset so I wanted to make a Halloween costume that would allow me to have a very long neck just for the day. My husband helped me create this giraffe costume and I was thrilled with the way it turned out.

It started with a child’s giraffe costume that happened to fit me around the bust so I cut the legs open and sewed it into a dress. The giraffe hood with the head was cut off and later attached to the top of the neck. The neck was simply a poster board rolled up and covered in material with a hole cut out for my face. The tricky part was securing the top-heavy neck to the collar of my dress but a little hang-down of material and safety pins fixed me up.

I sewed detachable sleeves that went to the floor so I could hold the homemade stilts and then pull the sleeves over them. A little face paint and a slight bend had me all set to be walking on all fours and eating the tops of houseplants everywhere.
