The costume looks great - but where is the Instructable? There is no instructions at all just photos of the final product.
WOW! That's so cool! This would def get my vote at a costume party! If my son was old enough I'd def make this for him. Thanks for sharing and kudos on the creativity

It seems that your "work in progress" Instructable is in separate parts. It is looking great though!

In case you didn't know, you can easily add these steps to your original Instructable by going to your homepage, clicking on the Instructables tab, and clicking edit next to the original 'ible. From there, you can add steps, add pictures, edit existing steps, and add detail to the original if you so choose.

I am looking forward to the final product!
