My Cat was recently diagnosed with Diabetes, so I originally wanted to recycle the many syringes I go through, but aside from porcupine, I blocked on ideas and I didn’t have enough yet for my one idea. So it finally occurred to me to just BE a Homemade Syringe Costume.
I really wanted a cylindrical look and cardboard seemed too cumbersome. I scoured thrift stores and found the hoop, just the right size as a hula hoop was too large. I had the sheer fabric and it draped nicely. The tricky part was the needle, but the $ store proved invaluable because I found a gas siphoning tool (plastic and with just the right bevel on the “needle”) that did the job.
A package of 2 shower caps allowed me to experiment first and have the 2nd for the final product. Some electrical tape and poster board rounded out the look and voila!
