This year for Halloween, I created a costume I have never seen executed anywhere else before...a Tiki-inspired volcano god.
To take it that extra step from 'unique' to 'epic', I wanted to add some degree special effects to the costume which could be easily and inexpensively constructed and did not need to rely on electronics (the thought of someone spilling a drink on my laptop is scarier than any Halloween monsters). I decided to build:
- A cheap, reusable confetti cannon to fire through the top (that does not require any sort of flame ignition)
- A smoke effect to come from the top of the costume (that does not require a heavy, electric smoke machine)
Here is a short video of the confetti 'eruption' and smoke effects I was able to achieve:
I would love your feedback - please leave me a comment below!
