I volunteer with my church to act as different characters for their vacation bible schools and "trick or treat street"s. Trick or treat street is a family friendly trick or treat alternative in e safe environment for the kids in my community. This upcoming summer I will be portraying the tin man in our VBS week of "The Wizard of Oz", consequently I am also designated tin man for the trick or treat street Wizard of Oz room. Here's how I made my costume in less than 1.5 weeks.
