My computer died almost two weeks ago. Dr. Techiestein brought it back to life just in time for Halloween! So here's a tricky treat for anyone looking for a winning monster costume. I would have posted this sooner, but dead computers don't cooperate.
The top part is built on the frame of a backpack - the kind hikers use, not a book bag dealie.
He fitted a long sleeve shirt over the frame, stuffed it, attached a full-head monster mask, slipped a long black robe over the shirt, attached huge monster hands to look like they're holding the red box, which has a hole cut in it to fit your head inside.
You'll need to wear another long black robe and keep your arms hidden. Wear the backpack as snug as possible to support the weight of the stuffed monster. Tie a black cape tied around the monster's neck to conceal the backpack and pin the cape to your robe. Voila! It was about 7 feet tall and a real-attention getter.
If you make one of these, I'd love to hear how it turned out.
Here's another little treat for you.
Check out this jack'o'lantern carved by Steve Attkisson. How clever!
Here's a silly Halloween poem I wrote:
WHAT IS IT?
A monster? A meanster?
A youngster? A screamster?
Ah, no, it's just the Halloweenster,
dreamt up by a dreamster!
What are you doing to celebrate? For those of you venturing out into the night, stay safe. Awrooo!
