As Halloween approached this year, I wanted to create an "illusion costume" for the students at my school. I took my inspiration from several posted on YouTube, specifically the "box" costumes. Since I'm known as the class-clown, I thought it would be a great thing to do!
Items you'll need:
Shoes or Sneakers
Plastic Zip Ties
Duct Tape - Packaging Tape
Safety Pins and Fishing Line
Foam Pool Noodles
Multicolored Foam or Paper Sheets
NOTE: the hands are not seen in the pictures, but have since been modified to look like the clown is "holding" the box!
Step 1: "Class Clown Delivery" Halloween Illusion Costume
First, create the head by combining the googly eyes and mask, to the foam head. Create the "shoulders and spine" by zipping together two piece of lightweight wooden dowels. I wrapped mine in duct tape for rigidity. Cover with a long sleeved t-shirt.
