A word from Elaine, the 'Tiger in a Cage' costume creator:
Halloween is my favorite time of year! I hand make a new costume every year. This year I bought a stuffed tiger on ebay. I cut off the head and pulled out all the stuffing. I removed the face of the tiger and kept the top and back of the head and the ears. I used this part to cover my hair. I made-up my face with a kit I purchased at a Halloween store. The cage is made from cardboard and foam core. I used lots of duct tape. I used wooden dowels for the cage spindles. After cutting a circle in the bottom of the cage for my head, I placed the cage onto some old wooden legs. It was easy to cover the bottom of the cage with a black table cloth. I have a small stool under the cage that I am sitting on when I slip my fully made-up head through the hole I cut in the bottom of the cage. My hands are inside the tigers paws so I can move them and make it scary. My ideas come to me when I dream.
