Introduction: $10 Halloween Costume

Here is an idea for a fun, inexpensive halloween costume.  The costume is good for groups... of up to 52!

Step 1: Grid Pattern on Cards

Print a grid pattern on a photo of the cards you will use.  Since the thick card I used was 24 inches wide, I made 24 squares the width of the card.  Print this as your template.

Step 2: Cut the Length Down to Size

I used a small skill saw to cut the proper height.

Step 3: Grid Pattern

For the complicated sections, drawing a 1" by 1" grid pattern will be helpful.  I used a drafting T-Square to make it easy.

Step 4: Draw!

Start drawing the outline in pencil.

All you need now is a heavy strap to connect the front and back of the card together.

Great costume..
But, I think you should rotate your top picture, as my head has
a krink in it.

Nice drawing..Looks like a lot of work, though..
You also need the back of the card, too!
