This homemade costume for boys entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Melissa, the 'Hunter in a Tree Stand' costume creator:

Wow! People couldn't believe what they were seeing. Was he standing or was he sitting? My son wanted to be a hunter for Halloween, but that just seemed way to boring so I decided to make him the tree and the hunter. I used an old bookbag with the expandable handle pulled out and camo fabric over pool noodles to create the tree branches. I than glued on some leaves from a fake tree. To create the illusion of him sitting I used two shelf brackets and the cut off partsof the pool noodle to create his fake sitting legs. I covered them in a pair of kids camo pants and attached workboots that I got from the Goodwill. It was a pretty easy costume to make but defenitly has gotten the best reaction out of people!

How did you get the "fake" legs attached to his body? The bend is the shelf bracket but was wondering how they are attached to him :)

I have the same question as Tasha. How did you get the shelf brackets to stay in place?
