This homemade costume for adults entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Caitlin, the 'Cousin Itt' costume creator:

I am wearing the costume. I got the idea from seeing photos on Pinterest, and my family decided to do Adams family. I first bought 6 bundles of tan yarn (875 yards/ bundle) at Joann fabrics, on sale 36$. I then set up 2 chairs spread to a distance of a little longer than my height and began u raveling the yarn, walking around the chairs in circles. I had my husband hold one side, while I cut the other side in the middle of the back of the chair, then cut the other side, so I had 2 ‘bunches’ of yarn per bundle. I saved one bundle for my t-shirt underneath. I got glued the yarn ends into a long strip of fabric and folded the fabric over to enclose the ends of the yarn. I did this with 2 large strips about 8” each. I also did the same thing making 4, 3” strips. I then took an old baseball cap and cut the bill off. I need something right and secure to hold the weight of the yarn all night. I got glued the large yarn strips to the hat (on top) then individually glued the small strips into places that needed extra. My shoulders seemed to stick out- so I unraveled more yarn, hot glued it onto a tan T-shirt (Amazon 9$) around the neckline front and back, and down the sleeves. I took black glasses I had and got glued yarn across the bottom of them to keep coverage when I split the yarn to be able to see. I placed the top hat on top of my yarn hat. I used Bobby pins on either side of my eyes to hold the strands back, and one small Bobby pin in The middle on the bridge of my nose.
