You can make this costume in a day and best of all the cost is approx. $15-$20, depending on what materials you have it could be more or less.
I have received lots of great feedback and messages from people who want to make this costume!! So I am running a challenge for anyone who plans on making this costume for Halloween. All you need to do is COMMENT on this Instructable with an IMAGE of you WEARING YOUR VERSION OF THIS COSTUME and a SMALL BLURB about how you put this costume together and some stories on the reactions you got when you wore it.
PRIZES - EVERYONE who enters will receive a free 3-month PRO-MEMBERSHIP. One lucky winner chosen by me will receive an Instructables Prize pack which includes: Instructables t-shirt, 1 year pro-membership, and Instructables stickers and patch.
TIMELINE - You have until November 7th to enter for the Instructables Prize Pack. I will continue to give 3-month pro-memberships to anyone who comments even after November 7.
