I wanted to do something NO ONE else would have.
In hindsight, no one in the entire world probably came up with this idea of a Homemade Obama Osama Costume…. lol
So I came up with the idea to have President Obama carrying a wooden box I made marked “Property of Seal Team Six” and inside it was Osama Bin Laden with a USA Rocket through his turban, a bullet hole between his eyes and covered in blood, giving the crowd the finger LOL.
The crowds went WILD….I must have taken 500 pictures with total strangers! It was A LOT of fun. I made the body with Styrofoam swimming noodles, the head from Styrofoam wig heads, the hands were gloves and boots, an old camouflage jacket and satin sheet/robe. I spray painted a wooden apple box from the local grocery store with a camouflage theme.
I took home the 1st Place Prize at Molly’s In Soulard, St Louis, Missouri against some stiff competition, nearly 100 entries.
