In this instructable you will learn how to turn a papier mache pumpkin into a fearsome costume head and how to turn a dress into a wicked cape.
Step 1: Supplies
A papier mache pumpkin: http://www.instructables.com/id/Papier-Mache-Pumpkins/
round piece of cardboard/thick paper
washer/smashed bottle cap (optional)
black mesh (screen material, old tights, anything black and see-through!)
~2 yards red material (optional)
sturdy black string
cutting device (Dremmel, sharp knife)
glue gun +spare glue sticks
sewing machine/needle and thread
note: You could just use black material for the cloak, or buy a cloak from a costume store, but equally nice material is expensive and costumes from stores are usually either expensive or cheap-looking.
