This homemade costume for girls entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Michelle, the 'The Claw' costume creator:

We spray painted a large cardboard box after cutting out windows and cutting the top flap for the sign. We made the claw out of a scalp massager and hung it with a fishing line with a handle to make it go up and down. We used the cardboard from the windows to make the boxes in the front and glued on print out pictures from real claw machines, cutting slots where you could insert real money. For the joystick, we used a Styrofoam ball on top of a marker and covered it in electrical tape. We used a metallic poster board on the back and taped on battery operated lights. We cut an old phone charger and let the plug stick out of the back of the box. We made holes for rope to be tied to the box and a bookbag in the center, so wearing the bookbag holds up the costume. We pinned together the stuffed animals and pinned them to the bookbag. The total cost was approximately $30.
