Picture of Cardboard Starfish Costume
This instructable is the result of a school project for technology class. That project was to create a stage/Halloween costume out of recycled cardboard, and all the pieces can only be attached using slotted construction, to allow for greater storage and transport.

Design Brief:

Design and construct a marine-themed costume constructed entirely from recycled cardboard and put together solely using slotted construction for use by a middle school student.

As my group's theme was marine invertebrates, I chose a starfish.

Specifications:
