Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You will need
- long sleeve shirt that is bigger then your actual size.
- Jeans that reach up to your waist.
- Red material.
- Duck tape.
- Old batteries.
- Cheese cloth.
- Hot glue gun.
Step 2: Cutting the Jeans
On the back of your Jeans using the scissors cut out two horizontal lines on each leg. The cuts should be just under your knee as shown.
When cutting if you want to make it easier make the Jeans tight when cutting and it should cut more smoothly.
Step 3: Cutting the Shirt
Get your shirt and lay it on a flat surface facing down.
On the back of the shirt cut a horizontal line on the top of the shirt.
this hole will be for your body to fit through.
Step 4: Supplying Weight to the Shirt
The shirt will need a little bit of weight to hold down.
Get 2 old batteries, duck tape and scissors and duck tape the batteries down to the bottom inside of your shirt.
Make sure the duck tape is strong enough.
Step 5: Making the Base of the Waist
Get out your cardboard and scissors and cut a thick strip and mould it into the waist as shown.
Step 6: Duck Taping
Now get out the duck tape and scissors and duck tape the top of the cardboard to the jeans.
Step 7: Cheese Cloth
cut out a bit of cheese cloth enough for it to cover the top of the jeans and dangle over the edge.
When you do this you will also want to make a dip in the middle of the cheese cloth so you can fit your red material in.
Step 8: Hot Glue Gunning
get out your hot glue gun and start gluing down the areas where the duck tape and cheese cloth touch.
Make sure this is strong, test it by pushing lightly down when the hot glue is dry.
Step 9: Red Material
Get your red material and scrunch it up into a big ball and place it in the dip you made in the previous step.
get your hot glue gun and hot glue gun it down to the cheese cloth.
Step 10: Stuff in Something
Stuff the inside of the cardboard that is inside your jeans with a jacket or stuffing.
MAKE SURE the stuffing is only sitting in the cardboard not the legs or it makes your legs look bigger then usual.
By doing this it will strengthen the cardboard so you can hold it.
Step 11: Extra
Any remaining cheese cloth?
Place it over your head and to make it seem more interesting.
Step 12: Putting It On
Put your body through the hole you cut in the shirt as well as the jeans.
