|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.
I am wearing the costume. I've always wanted to do a big paper mache project. While I was watching Castaway, the idea came to me. The costume was a success! I go to a university where Halloween is a pretty big deal, and it is my Senior Year so I knew I had to go all out.
I ordered a 4 foot beachball online and blew it up. Next I started to paper mache it. This is the only part of the costume that took a while. I paper mached about 4 layers onto the beach ball. After everything was dry, I deflated the ball (I made sure not to paper mache the spout) Once it deflated I took the ball out and started cutting holes for my arms, leg and head. Next I painted the ball with regular white paint. After that paint dried, I painted Wilson.
And...thats how you do it!
