This homemade costume for adults entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Braden, the 'Bad Idea' costume creator:

I am wearing the costume I made myself. My idea came from my love for puns and pun-related costumes. The supplies I used were two pieces of foam board, one Exacto knife, two pieces of thin foam, one pair of scissors glitter, a hot glue gun, Elmer's glue, two strands of battery-powered LED lights, one yard of white fleece, one yard of white, translucent fabric, two yards of one-inch elastic, full body spandex, silver shorts, devil horns, and a pitchfork crop. I began by freehand drawing the letters and numbers on the thin foam then cut them out, using scissors. I then drizzled Elmer's on them and covered them with glitter. While they dried, I drew the shape for the light bulbs on the foam board and cut them out with an Exacto knife. I then used hot glue to cover the front of both with the white fleece. After gluing the fleece to the foam board, I tacked the LED bulbs to it, using hot glue (making sure the battery pack ended at the bottom). I then placed the translucent fabric over the lights and glued it using hot glue. I then laid out the numbers and letters and glued them in place with hot glue. I cut the elastic bands to fit me properly and glued them to the back of the lightbulbs to go over my shoulders and around my waist. Feel free to ask questions if you need help!
