When I get back from trick or treating(despite the age cap none of us follow). I will upload pictures of the finished costume.
I chose to make this as a costume because of my recent adventures at the good will warehouse store in st louis. every time I go there i notice all of the not playable but still cool looking records they always have, and have always been looking for a good use for them. I in the past have made guitar picks and even a phone holster from them but now that it is halloween time and I had no costume I needed to think of something quick.and thus the record store costume was born.
Step 1: Materials
10- unplayable 45 rpm records (the smaller ones)
1- spool of black or dark blue thread
1- old shirt you don't mind ruining in a dark color
1- bumper sticker from your favorite record store(usually free if you ask)
1- hat that is large enough to put the sticker on
EDIT: unfortunately after completing most of the costume I realized I lost the bumper sticker and thusly found out that you should be able to substitute business cards if they look enough like the stores sign
EDIT: for any of you who had to improvise with the business card like I did just stitch the two edges down with little x's and it should hold
