Step 1: Planning!! And Supplies

Picture of Planning!! And Supplies
13, 8:10 PM.jpg
I used a combo of tutorials and inspiration from Pinterest and Instructables to come up with my plan. My biggest concern was keeping the costume in the right proportions. You'll find the head piece made from styrofoam rings or cement forming tubes. I chose to use the tube bc I figured it'd have a smoother finish and be less mess.
Things you'll need:
12-inch concrete forming tube (Home Depot)
2 12-inch smooth/rounded foam wreaths
White see-through speaker fabric
Sheets of yellow craft foam
Yellow plastic electrical tape (yellow duct tape didn't quite match my foam, the electrical tape was a perfect match)
Cardboard for body
Styrofoam for hats and hands
Kozies (those beer can sleeves)
Spray glue
Masking tape
Duct tape
Scissors/styrofoam cutters/paint

You could definitely do the hats out of paper mache covered chicken wire. I just had access to a whole lot of free styrofoam.

That is pretty cool, just wondering if you can make the hats out of paper mâché??
