This year, I went in a Homemade House That Fell on the Witch of the East Halloween Costume in The Wizard of Oz. To make the house portion, I spray painted a moving box white, cut out arm and head holes, and then used construction paper to make windows, doors, curtains, and bushes. For anyone else wanting to try this, I would recommend trying to use white butcher paper to cover the box – spray painting took a while and looked a bit blotchy, and I couldn’t really shake the paint smell.
For the roof hat (it’s a bit crooked in the picture), I used a Styrofoam square as the base. I hollowed out a space for my head and painted it brown. Then, I made the top and sides out of cardboard, used hot glue to fasten it to the Styrofoam, and covered the cardboard in leftover wall paper that looked rather shingle-like. I covered it once, and then made smaller rectangles to layer like shingles. Then, I simply bought some black and white striped tights and rented some Dorothy shoes, and all I had to do was sit down and let the legs come out from under the house.

Like the thatched roof and the fact that the wearer looked the part. Very funny!
