A word from Karen, the 'Delorean from Back to the Future' costume creator:
I'm not really sure what possessed me to make a costume, especially one so big. I have enough problems getting my beautiful fur baby Munsta to wear clothes, she hates wearing her pajamas to bed.
I don't have human children as of yet, so I thought this would be fun for me and my fur baby.
At first I thought of just purchasing her one but I have always liked arts and crafts so I thought "why not?!" I have always liked the trilogy movies Back to the Future. I remember watching them over and over with my older brother, probably got sick of watching them with me but he never said no to watching them with me. Making her look like Marty or Doc Brown was too easy and simple I wanted a bit of a challenge. So I decided to make the delorean.
First, I started by making a rough sketch from cardboard. Then I traced it to a cardboard box and began cutting, after I used packing tape to put it together. Once it was all held together I used wrapping paper to cover it, so it can be easier to spray paint it gray. I used thread to hold the doors up and used shiny glitter/rhinestone stickers used for iPhones to make the front and back lights and to make the letters DMC to put in front of the car(which you will find is in the Delorean itself). I used electrical tape for the rockers/side design panel of car (so many names for that car part, I hope you understand what I'm referring to). For the wheels I took one of my nephews old toys (it's ok he is 10 he didn't mind). I printed a copy of the license plate and taped it to a piece of cardboard that I taped to the car.
I can honestly admit it wasn't the easiest task but I enjoyed every bit of it. At the end I used velcro to hold it in place on her body. It took a few days to get her used to it but at the end she became used to it and walked around without hesitation.
My husband, mom and neighbors loved it. My neighbors asked where I purchased the costume. I still think I could have done it better but I love it as well and enjoyed every bit of it.
