It turned out pretty cool.
Everyone who saw him out trick or treating in it was taking pictures of the costume.
We threw this together in less than 2 hours on Halloween morning.
Step 1: Flower pot
We got a 20" one from the Home Cheapo for $14.99.
There was a removable bottom piece that holds the water.
Take that off and cut a hole in the bottom.
I used a jigsaw.
Next I used some electric service cable clamps that I had lying around for suspender supports.
I clamped these in a vise and hammered them over to create a loop to fit a piece of rope that we used for the suspenders.
I screwed the clamps to the inside of the pot, near the top, with 3/4" #10 machine screws, washers and nuts.
2 pieces of rope create the 2 suspender straps and a 3rd smaller piece holds them together so they don't slide off your shoulders.
