Miss Frizzle and the gang
|Costume type:||Costumes for Groups|
This homemade costume for groups entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Charlotte, the 'Magic School Bus' costume creator:
Halloween is a big deal here in Chapel Hill, N.C. and being college students my friends and I get pretty into it. Every year we base our Halloween costumes around our red-headed friend Molly. Freshman year we did Wizard of Oz (she was the lion), Sophomore year we did Spice Girls (she was Ginger Spice) and last year we did Miss Frizzle and the Magic School Bus (she was Miss Frizzle of course).
- To make the actual purchase cardboard boxes for each "student", remove the flaps and paint the boxes yellow. Then paint two black stripes. Go to the scrapbook/sticker section at Michaels (or any arts and crafts store) and buy purple glitter letters (to write magic school bus) and math and science related stickers. Each person then decorates their own section of the bus. Clip suspenders on to each box to make it wearable and also appear more "student like".
