I built the head out of scrap wire as I worked for an electrician and masking tape, which I then covered with bondo and sanded. I then painted it to match the pictures of Minnie that I had. I then covered the open holes for the mouth and the eyes with sheer black fabric so that I could see some. The visibility wasn’t great. But the head made the costume. Unfortunately, it was so heavy that my shoulders ached from wearing it all day. I got really great reactions from everyone when I handed out candy on our town square for the city spook parade.
I also made the dress from the only red and white polka dotted fabric that I could find in our little town. I did cheat and buy the hands somewhere online.
It was an amazing costume.
