This homemade costume for kids entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Sandy, the 'Plants vs. Zombies' costume creator:

My boys love the "plants vs. zombies" video game so I decided to make their costumes this year.

For the zombie: I paper mached a 12" balloon and added dimension by using more newspaper and masking tape. Then I cut out holes for the eyes and mouth. I painted with acrylics and used styrofoam bals for the eyes and a styrofoam block covered in masking tape for the teeth and gums. The cone is made out of foam sheets. I glued an old shirt collar and tie to the neck base and used an old jacket and ripped jeans to complete the costume.

For the pea shooter plant: I paper mached a 9" balloon and used a styrofoam round piece for the mouth. I painted with acrylic paint and glued black buttons for the eyes. In order to keep the head on a two yr old, I sewed a head piece out of felt and then glued the pea shooter head to it.

Can I buy these masks from you?

#5 comment by Sandy March 18, 2014

Hi Kourtney!

Are you interested in both the zombie and the plant?
How much are you willing to pay for them?
The Zombie mask can fit a 6 year olds head and the plant fits a 4 year olds.

#12 comment by Beth October 14, 2014

I agree, the best pea shooter I have seen so far! Thanks for the inspiration. My 8 yr old is going at the football payer zombie and has convinced his little brother (5yo) to go as a pea shooter.

Can you clarify what the Styrofoam round piece is? I'm on my second attempt to make this for my son.
Thanks so much!
