Step 1: What you Need

Picture of What you Need
Two packs of foam sheets, 24" x 96" x 1" They cost about $15 each.
1 black sharpie
1 Large safety pin

UPDATE: After wearing this costume for about 8 hours straight, I recommend forgoing the velcro and using one giant safety pin on the outer layer. The velcro was fine for just standing around, but when truly put through the paces, the velcro wasn't robust enough. I put a large safety pin through the outermost two layers and it worked all the rest of the night.

Step 2: Perforation

Draw the perforation with the marker on the foam like real toilet paper.

Step 3: Roll it up and velcro it

Picture of Roll it up and velcro it
Roll it around yourself fairly tight and then attach the velcro to the loose end. If you happen to end up with a type of foam that doesn't adhere to the velcro, you can just use superglue to attach the velcro to the foam.

UPDATE: Skip the velcro and save yourself some money. Use a large safety pin on the outermost two layers. The ones used for baby diapers are large and sturdy enough for the job.

Step 4: Tuck your clothes in and go

Tuck your clothes inside the roll, or put on little shorts and a tube top or something, or go shirtless and pantsless if you're into that.

I could not find white foam anywhere so I used quilt batting instead. It turned out quite nice. I did wear a tube top underneath to prevent nipple slips and added the wig just because I had it. Thanks for the idea....

Great project. Do I detect a nipple slip in the last photo?
I think that's the top of the velcro you saw
I was thinking I saw the same thing. The right one in the pic. of her running. LOL
maybe with a little modification

Several years ago, I made this costume for my husband for a variety show for that Schoolhouse Rock tune, "I'm Only a Bill . . ." We used the same type of foam, only a wider piece to cover his face. We tied a big red piece of fabric around his waist and cut out a hole for his face to peek through. We made the red, white, and blue seal (circular thingy) out of a painted paper plate. It was great, as he was really tall, and it looked hillarious on stage with the music and everything. Never thought of toilet paper!! Good idea, schmeese!!
its supposed to be smoking...

I enjoy this probably more than you could ever know...
Thank you for brightening my day, sir. :D
It's the business socks that make it that kind of extra special!
So agree! Black business socks with sandals and a nip slip. what more do you want?

Fantastic costume! Great idea and with a little modification you can become a scroll, a bill, a rolled up newspaper, etc. I love it!!!

No one else sees the irony that the foam is called "Morning Glory"?

 How did you attach the 2 sheets together? safety pin? how did you roll it tightly? Sigh
Bigev4 years ago
I honestly couldn't stop giggling at this. It's unique, easy, and doesn't need explaining.

The only con to it would have to be awkwardness. It looks a bit cumbersome to walk in.

Other than that, great! I'll give it a 4.5*

 Even radder than your costume is the fact that you are FOONING!  You rock.

WHERE CAN I BUY FOAM SHEETS ??
applestone (author)  rickick4 years ago
i got mine from wal-mart, but i'm pretty sure the sheets are just standard at any 'hancock fabrics' or whatever craft/fabric store.
