Nintendo Wii and Mii character.
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2010 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Karen, the 'Wii & Mii' costume creator:
My husband (John) is himself playing Wii. I (Karen) am his Mii. John made a over sized remote. We attached balls to the end of Pringles can and painted to match tees. Took a purple pumpkin sprayed it with black paint then wiped off most of it to give it a swirlled look. The mask is an old safety shield. Got some vinyl from the sign shop. Since I still have time before Halloween I am going to work out another way to make my chest more round. It looked okay from straight on but side view I do not like.
We spent $6 on 2 spray paints still mostly full
$15 on vinyl have lots left
2 styrofoam balls $3.50
every thing else just around house
Before we painted balls we paint very old white glue on them let them dry a day between coats. Also had to cut cans to the length at my wrist Removed the strap from pumpkin and screwed scrap wood to hold inside.
