My daughter loves The Wizard of Oz, and wanted to be Dorthy. I thought it would be fun to take things a step further and add a flying monkey. I have to admit that flying monkeys, with a perma-grin are in fact pretty creepy too. She thinks it's great and likes to run around screaming as if the monkey is about to get her. I would have liked to include instructions but I tend to "fly by the seat of my pants," when it comes to constructing costumes so I opted for just a photo. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Love this!! Would love even more to know how to make it stay up like that :)

I made the monkey from paper mache that you can learn to do from my pinata instructable. As for getting it to stay up I constructed a ridged "harness" of sorts using wire from a tomato cage. The wire extends from her shoulders & up the arms of the monkey. Sorry there aren't instructions. At the time I didn't take pictures of the process & was just starting out on instructables so I was unsure how to approach making a step by step. Hope this helps a little! :)
Outstanding!! How did I miss this last year?
