A word from Lindsay, the 'Castaway Couple' costume creator:
How to for Wilson Vollyball! Boyfirend and I had an awesome time making this costume. We used 36" inch beachball. We picked this size so I would be able to fit through the doors. First we plastic wrapped the beachball so the so the paper mâché wouldn't stick while deflating. Next was the paper mâché (we used newspaper and glue). It took us about 2 weeks to complete and we added 1 layer on everyday. The last layer we added computer paper and fianlly we spray painted the Wilson ball white. Now we deflated the beach ball and started the cutting part. We cut and opening for my head and 2 oval holes for the arms. Siccors and a extro knife worked best for this.
We used 2 diffrent color reds (1 light red and 1 dark red) we mixed those togethet which gave it a real looking feel of blood. We used our fingers to paint the face.Than we painted the Wilson logo on the back of the ball. We used black paint for this. This was neat.
Tom Hanks costume- This was really easy! We used an old shirt and cut out holes. I added bronzer to the whole shirt to give it that dirty feel. We used frabic for his shirt and green frabic for his feet. We used fake leavs and attached it to the rope with his shoes. Finally we bought a wig from Kmart $7.00 and he grew out his beard. & we couldn't forget our Fedex box which came in handy when we were walking to the bars. It held our cellphones wallet and keys.
Overall this costume was the best! We were the spotlight of the party. People were screaming wilson and everyone wanted to take pics of us! We defiantly enjoyed making this costume together and had a blast at the parties!
