In 2012 I was desperate for a unique and fun costume. I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest (of course) and let my creative juices flow.
At the craft store I purchased a narrow yet long piece of foam board. I then picked up some contact paper in a wood pattern to make it look like a real table (this way it wouldn’t be too heavy to carry around all night). I used super glue to place the cups on the board and carried a few spare ping pong balls in my pocket as well as glueing some to a headband.
I was a hit at a neighborhood costume party! The next weekend a local bar had a costume contest and we figured we got to wear our costumes twice! At the bar I flipped up the board and allowed others to “play” trying to get the ball in the cups. I won first prize!! This is an easy costume that is a big hit!
