Introduction: Dilbert Costume
Office having a halloween party? This one's for you.
You will need
1. Dark slacks
2. White button up shirt
3. Constructions paper, pink, red, black.
4. Some old glasses frames, preferably plastic
5. A piece of string
6. Some paper glue.
7. A couple pens.
Step 1: Make the Mask
The mask is made by cutting the construction paper into the approximate pattern below. Leave the eyes for later. The sides wrap around the back of your head, and can be sized with tape before gluing. I found that lining the head band area with thin cardboard gave it a little more durability.
once you have the size right and the mask is glued into a ring, glue your eye glasses to the front. Elmers glue worked for me, but I had some plastic glasses frames.
Cut out a tear drop shape for the nose and affix to the glasses.
Now cut out the eye holes.
Step 2: The Tie
I toyed with wire in an actual tie, but a paper tie really got the curled up look right, and was easy to wear. To create the tie cut out the shapes below. For the stripes, cut a bunch of strips of the contrasting color and glue them on the tie overlapping out the sides. When the glue is dry, cut off the excess.
To tie the tie on, I glued a loop of cardboard to the top of the tie, and ran a piece of string through the loop.
Step 3: Getting Dressed
Put on the pants with a belt.
Tuck the shirt into the pants. The shirt should puff out a bit. If you are lucky enough to need to, wear a sweater under the shirt to get the puff just right.
For a final touch, put two pens in the shirt pocket.
Just one problem, how to eat the Halloween candy when Dilbert has no mouth.
