Dodo Bird and Rider Costume
|Costume type:||Costumes for Adults|
This homemade costume for adults entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Laura, the 'Dodo Bird and Rider' costume creator:
Old bald man with hairy elf ears riding a DIY dodo bird. The dodo bird was made out of a teddy bear, pool noodle, feathers (over a 1000 different feather used) and modeling clay. I could slip the dodo bird on and off as needed- boxer shorts sewed into the bird body. Suspenders were used to support the body of the bird. Birds head was molded with magic modeling clay and painted to look like a dodo bird, with eyes that lite up and changed colors. Dodo feet were also molded over shoes with clay and painted to look like bird feet with claws. The old man feet were painted to match skin tone and hair was also added on the toes. The total cost is estimated at $125.00 and over 40 hours of time spent making it.
