I am a big fan of Halloween. Big Fan. However, university work inevitably starts to pile on and I have to scramble to come up with a costume. This usually results in a few trips to the thrift shop for inspiration. I have had a few really great costumes that were last minute, but simple and really inexpensive.
On one such thrift shop run I found this giant teddy bear for $15 and had to have it. I figured it would be a great teddy bear costume. This project only took me about an hour to put together and required very few tools.
