Intro: $10 Halloween Costume
Here is an idea for a fun, inexpensive halloween costume. The costume is good for groups... of up to 52!
Step 1: Grid Pattern on Cards
Print a grid pattern on a photo of the cards you will use. Since the thick card I used was 24 inches wide, I made 24 squares the width of the card. Print this as your template.
Step 2: Cut the Length Down to Size
I used a small skill saw to cut the proper height.
Step 3: Grid Pattern
For the complicated sections, drawing a 1" by 1" grid pattern will be helpful. I used a drafting T-Square to make it easy.
Step 4: Draw!
Start drawing the outline in pencil.
Step 5: Trace
With a heavy marker, trace the pencil outline.
Step 6: Round the Corners
Round the corner to make it look more like an actual card.
Step 7: Back
Start the design for the back of the card.
Step 8: Done!
All you need now is a heavy strap to connect the front and back of the card together.
