Awesome Homemade Tin Man Costume

Our group decided to go out dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz. I decided to be the Tin man. I made the main parts of my Homemade Tin Man Costume with tag board and brads and painted them with silver spray-paint. I found long silver skirt that I cut and sewed into pants and then I spray painted an old pair of my boots silver. The funnel hat was just a funnel painted silver and duct taped to a headband. Silver gloves and lots of silver face paint to finish off the costume.

I made sure to re-enforce the inside of the costume with lots of duct tape so that it wouldn’t rip as easy. And…the most important costume piece – the straw – was needed because I couldn’t tip my head back to drink!

  1. Your tin man costume is the best I have seen anywhere. But I don’t know what tag board is and where to get it. And how did you know what size to cut it? and how did you get in and out of it?
    Thanks for your help – making costumes for a high school play.
