I have been making my sons halloween costumes since he was a baby. Every year we think about what he should be. And, every year it gets more challenging and exciting. This year we decided on King Tut after reading some books on ancient Egyptian history. It took 2-3 weeks and between 15-20 hours to make. All handmade and hand painted. The sarcophagus is made of cardboard,foam,paper mache,tape and paint. The suit is made of cheese cloth and given a weathered look with paint.
