Steak & A1 Sauce Costume
A Saucy Steak!
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Mertz, the 'Steak & A1 Sauce' costume creator:
We always allowed our children to pick what they wanted to be for Halloween, with some interesting results. This particular year our daughter, Lizzie, said she wanted to be a steak! Since our son, John, is only a year older they often co-ordinate their costumes. He decided to be sauce for the steak. Thus was hatched the need for me to get creative with some cardboard, a glue gun and some paint. I always try to tie in something for them to collect their goodies in so the "Rare" and "Well Done" were added, and had boxes behind them for candy. Tip: if you're going to have arms or legs sticking out, make the openings so they don't rub your children. I used plastic tubing, sliced lengthwise, to encircle all the openings. Cardboard is great for 3D costumes - you just cut and shape it then hold it together with a generous amount of hot glue. Voíla - your kids can be anything they can think of!
