A word from Angela, the 'Edward Scissorhands and his Topiary Creation' costume creator:
My husband and I went as Edward scissorhands and one of the topiary creations he makes in the movie! Everything was hand made - I used foam core for the blades of the scissors and coated them in resin, then painted everything and used a lot of source materials to create the other elements of the hands (scissors, screws, bolts, etc.). My costume was a black body suit that I made about 15 belts for in varying sizes and added studs and other accessories - including a homemade moon belt buckle out of model magic. The topiary costume was a challenge - I ended up purchasing a bunch of panels that are typically used as backdrops and hand-stitched and glued it onto his clothing to create the effect!
