This homemade costume for adults entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Elizabeth, the 'Cemetery Statue' costume creator:

I decided that I wanted to go as a cemetery angel human statue costume for Halloween. I knew that this was going to take A LOT of work, but I felt that I was up for the challenge.

I started by building the wings. First I made a frame out of coat hangers and then began to cover them in paper mache. This process took many hours of gluing and drying. I sculpted the shape of the feathers out of Styrofoam that had come with the packing to our new television and then did more layers of paper mache.

The top and bottom of the outfit is made out of a papers canvas tarp that I bought at Loews and sewed and painted. It has a chicken wire frame underneath the front to help the statue keep its shape. I also found white cotton gloves that I could paint in order to save myself from having to paint my arms and bought moss at a craft store to glue to the costume.

The head piece was also crafted out of paper mache and took several attempts to get just right. This is probably my favorite costume that I have ever made.
