This homemade costume for boys entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 2nd place in the Most Creative Costume nomination!

A word from Will, the 'Troll On Your Back' costume creator:

This costume was a big hit at school, and my dad sculpted the troll head (Amazing work, right?) But you can also get a mask from your local halloween store.

I move the troll's arms (my real arms) and "my arms" are fake.

When I was at school with it, it looked like the troll was doing my work for me!!!

Build a little PVC backpack to hold the troll head. Get two shirts from your local goodwill. Make sure that the two shirts are as different in color and texture as possible. Use your sewing skills and some stuffing to make fake arms (and stuff gloves for the hands) that hang down at your sides. Put a hole in the "troll" shirt shoulder so the troll's arms are actually your arms. Its a bit tricky to get it all to look right but its worth it.
