Wondering what to wear to the next luau, concerned that your "girls" might not fit properly into a pre-made piece, of just think its nifty to be able to say, "I made it myself" when people ask where you got that awesome hula costume? For under $10 you, too, can make your own coconut bra.

For this project you will need:

- a coconut
- thin leather strips or thongs for comfort, or thick twine for you masochists
- screwdriver
- hammer
- jigsaw or hand saw
- spoon
- power drill or sharp pointy object
- power sander (optional)
- lacquer (optional)

Step 1: Purchase a coconut

When purchasing a coconut, you'll want to keep in mind the size of your girls. Go with your gut, and look for one as spherical as possible. Don't be afraid to hold them up to your chest in the produce section - the odd looks are kind of fun, especially if you bring a friend or two. Unwrap the coconut, slap the sticker on your cheek and you're ready to go!
i think it turned me into a Polynesian zombie dancer executing the Hula equivalent of Thriller D:
Fabulous! I'd love to see pictures! (3 years later, ha!)

I can't find an instructable on how breaking open a coconut from it's shell :D
on my vacation in Thailand we used 30 minutes 3humans and one dog to get it open :D but it is ten times more delicious when all the effort is worth is

although the (calories spend on getting food/calories gotten out of food) ratio wasn't that high, it was fun.

Well, I think no one in his right mind, no matter how well trained, could use a jigsaw that way. Things could go weird very easily.

Other than that, nice project.
