Wilson From Castaway Costume
Costume type:  Costumes for Women
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for women entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Sarabeth, the 'Wilson From Castaway' costume creator:

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!

How do u get it on ND off

It wasn't heavy at all, it was very light weight. To take it off I just put my arms back inside and slid it off over my head! It was pretty hard for me to fit through doorways.

I'm trying to make mine at the moment. The paper seems very stuck to the ball, I'm worried that it wont come off when I deflate the ball. Did you have the same problem?

I'm making this for this year. The paper mache part has taken more than a week. You have to let each layer dry. But, if you put it in the sun, be careful. It may cause the ball to expand & crack.
