THESE are most of the material you will need some of thins stuff you can switch out but this is what I used:
-Duck tape
-Clear tape
-Electrical tape(optional, if you can find something that is shiny, black and circular)
-brown yarn
-tin foil
-Zap Straps
-brown/black face paint
-two brown knitted sweaters(only one with zipper(or no zippers at all))
-Scissors
-base-ball hat
-big basket
-big sheet of cardboard

Step 2: Break The Basket

Picture of Break The Basket
Take the basket and bend the handle down so that it stays on an angle. The angle depends on how big you want your smile to be. Once you have bent it down and it stays, duck tape the part where the handle connects to the basket.(the Handle will break a bit so don't be frustrated of you break it, but don't snap it right off). After you have done that you can start to connect the hat. When I did it I started just duck taping it to the rim. That did not work, so I bought a bunch of zap straps, first I put one through the top of the basket and the top of the hat,(make sure the rim of the hat is over the rim of the basket and touching it) then I put another zap straps through the visor and through the basket again.

Very creative, I love it, although to make it a bit better, I'd recommend wearing a tighter sweater maybe?
How mush did this cost to make?
Please Respond please!
Also, I hope this creative costume wins the contest!
