Aliens and 'The Claw' from Toy Story
|Costume type:||Costumes for Families|
This homemade costume for families entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Kim, the 'Aliens and The Claw Family' costume creator:
We were invited to go to Disney on vacation with another family. In order to ride the attractions, we needed a comfortable costume that was Disney themed. We wanted to be creative- so thought of a character in the movie that was talked about but wasn't given a personality.
We bought the costumes on line, I added glow hie dark tape so the kids would light up at "Mickey's Not so scary Halloween party". My brother in law cut out plastic pipe (he's a plumber!) and I had an old music stand used as the actual claw. We drilled a hole in the cap on the end of the pipe, and tied a small rope to hang the bottom of the music stand. Then inserted it in a small backpack that I used to carry water. The backpack made it easy to carry- even distribution.
Added " The Claw" lettering, cut out of glow in the dark tape, on each side......so there was no question what the costume was. We had a great time! Everyone asked for our picture! Thank you for your consideration.
