This homemade costume for kids entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Elizabeth, the 'Angler Fish in the Aquarium' costume creator:

My son, Blake, asked to be a fish tank for Halloween this year. He is a fish hobbyist. He has a 55 gallon fish tank in his room that he loves dearly! I'm sure that is where hid idea came from.
The Angler Fish was inspired from the movie, "Finding Nemo". We decided he was just creepy enough for Halloween!

The Items we used were:
Cardboard boxes
Wood-look Contact Paper
Cellophane
Electrical Tape
Bicycle Helmet
Paper Mache'
Clear Christmas Bulbs
Battery operated Tea Light Candle
Battery Operated Black Lights
Aquarium Plant Decorations
Lots of electrical tape, masking tape, and hot glue

Angler Fish Construction-
We covered a bicycle helmet with plastic grocery bags and masking tape to create the shape. Fins were cut from cardboard boxes and attched with masking tape, the light was attached to floral wire with masking tape.
After the Angler fish form was made, we covered with paper mache', let dry, and painted it using acrylic paint.

Fish Tank Construction-
We created the fish tank completely with cardboard boxes covered with electrical tape, cellophane for the glass, and contact paper. We attached some lightweight black material to the back of the costume to cover his lower half.

We went to several Halloween Events around town, and The Angler Fish costume was big hit! Lots of giggles, and picture requests! My son loved all the attention, and extra handfuls of candy he got for having a unique costume!
