READY FOR HALLOWEEN!!............No?.... Then here's and easy costume that rocks!

I have entered this into the EASY HALLOWEEN COSTUME COMPETITION! so you can make one for your self.

PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!! ENJOY!

Basically Halloween was around the corner and I didn't want to be the typical Vampire with face paint : F I wanted to stand out from the crowd, I was like a celebrity the attention it generated! 

I was originally thinking to go as the Apple iPod advert all blacked out with a colourful background, but I had an idea along the same lines why not go as a webpage..... Facebook!  Here is a brief description on how I did it!

Step 1: Gathering The materials!


So I had less than 8 hours to make the outfit because as perusal I leave everything to the last moment, so I headed down to my local supply store (B&Q) to find some supplies!

I knew I needed a light material so I looked at plywood but because of the lack of time I chose the cardboard  material that goes on the back of a cupboard, one of the reasons I chose this is that it was already coloured white on one side no painting required! plus it was a lot lighter.

I was sure that this material was to flimsy so I bought some thin pieces of wood to go around the sides to give it some strength.
so now I had to get a large piece of cardboard home on my scooter : / my own fault I never think!

So I got a bit clever and got one of the staff to cut it right down the middle. I then taped the whole thing together and put it on my scooter, I was sure that if I went over 30 MPH I was going to take off with out the need of E.T.

Excellent. That looks way cool. I couldn't picture it at first when I heard of it, but you nailed it. Love the way you have your head poking through the profile pic. Really imaginative and original.

Great stuff!!!
Great job. I really enjoyed your write up as well.

Awesome costume. Liquid nails or a staple gun may have worked better for you than nails.

Yes! I need to invest in a heavy duty staple gun, Thank you!

Thank You!
That is a very clever idea.......could have been done on just cardboard from an appliance or refrigerator box gotten from an appliance store too. Much lighter and cheaper than buying the board you bought.

Love it when people come up with great ideas like yours. I hope you won a prize for the most clever.

Thank you for your nice comment! Good idea using recyclable materials! I am sure that there would have been some old refrigerator boxes or something around!

Next time I hope I won't be rushing so I can think about it properly. : )
