I went to the thrift store to buy the clothes and belts (to make the shirt look like a straight jacket).
I bought insulation Styrofoam and cut into one inch strips to make the cage. Then hot glued them together. I also sprayed them with black and spread silver over to make it look like metal. It needs to be special paint for Styrofoam though otherwise the paint will eat it. and I bought a witch wig and teased it like crazy and stuck it through the cage.
I bought scar make up for my face and they had the Hill Billy tooth blackening stuff for my teeth. This Homemade Jackal from Thirteen Ghosts Costume turned out to be a pretty scary costume! I won best costume!
