I created this costume for my son. We ordered a few mascot to promote our business and they were way to big for him He wanted Sonic but it was over $200 online. I decided to try and make it myself. This is the first costume I have made from scratch. My husband and I own a Halloween store so I have been working on more homemade items. www.JJsHalloweenoutlet.com
I used a cheap punch balloon and covered in with paper mache. I did this over several days; allowing it to completely dry in between layers I used a fan to speed up the process.. Then after popping the balloon I cut the hole in the bottom for your head. I drew the face on with marker just to get a good idea of where everything would be. I also cut out the eyes where you would be looking out of.
