This homemade costume for kids entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Gynelle, the 'Piggy Bank' costume creator:

Single mother of a beautiful 5 year old boy I have my wits and tricks up my sleeve to save the day on Halloween. Well with considered preparation and lots of work I pull off what is to be the best costume ever. I canít take all the credit for it I had some help from a friend that is now known as husband. Figured he would have thrown in the towel after I asked for help on this daunting Halloween project. No, No he even finished it when I dosed off the night before the contest. Waking up to your dreams is quite reverse but truly amazing.

I myself came up with the idea searching the web for what hasnít been created. Surfing the web and my brain waves I was sure to have found the perfect 10. My son (Brayden) will become the first ever piggy bank. Not just a piggy bank but an undercover quarter joining his long lost buddies in the piggy tank. Sounds ridiculous I know, but you at the time werenít the boyfriend being asked to make this crazy idea.

Without further due we established an idea of the frame and the cover for the frame. After watching paper mache for days we began our first experience with what looks to be easy, but is incredibly time consuming. After the chicken wire paper mache frame was covered and painted we established a large hole on the top and bottom for child insert. Pig gently rests on Braydenís shoulders with padding and securing straps. On the back side of the top hole is a partial silver circle painted quarter missing the president, but instead is Braydenís facial profile. Wearing plain jeans and a sponge bob t-shirt with a silver neck, face and sprayed wig Brayden would look ridiculous if it wasnít for the pig to save the day. Now with a quarter on the way to join the collective piggy currencies did this change your mind on what you will be this year? Stay creative.
