Cool Popcorn Costume

This is my son Bryice. He is 2 years old. Each year I try to come up with a very original costume. This year we decided on a Box of Popcorn costume. I started early on the creation so I would have plenty of time to make it just right or pick a new idea. We are both very happy with the result.

Red Market
Great Stuff( found @ any home improvement store)

-Add dried popcorn to top of the box with dabs of great stuff

  1. I looked at the great stuff at Lowe’s today and it is flammable.. I don’t think I will be using that on my child’s costume..

  2. ….so is fabric. she made a wonderful costume, don’t come up in here and try raining on the parade. I’d like to see you do better…did you buy a costume at Lowe’s while you were there?

  3. My daughter will be a box of popcorn for a dance recital. We ordered the box part of the costume, but I needed an idea for how to make the popcorn! Thanks! Never heard of “Great Stuff” but will look for it.

  4. What is great suff? Is there another name, because i dont think it is called that in Australia, and i would really like to make the popcorn! :)
