This was a fun costume to make and not too difficult either. Certainly worth the effort considering how excited people were when they saw it.

Step 1: Creating the torso

The ball is for a Kirby costume we made at the same time.

In front you can see the torso we made. I used a fedex box and solo cup for the neck then paper mached it together along with a couple of shoulder bumps. These are important for holding the dress on.
That reminds me of a Headless Horseman costume that my mom made for me back in the 70s but my head was hidden and I carried a pumpkin pain. A very cool costume, you got my vote!
In a world of store bought Spiderman and Disney Princess costumes, your kid deserves a whole hand full of candy or even the holy grail- A full size, name brand chocolate bar!
Wow....great costume and it does look pretty easy! I like the blood free one myself but both look cool. Well done!
