This homemade costume for couples entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Lauren, the 'Deer Caught in the Headlights' costume creator:

Chad & Lauren

Chad is dressed as a deer. The costume is a brown sweatshirt & sweatpants. I then sewed on "fur" like fabric to the chest, arms, and legs. I cut and attached the fabric on the legs long enough to cover the shoes and look like hooves.

Lauren is dressed as a road with headlights. I used white duct tape strips on the front. The headlights are the press on/off lights. I painted the outside silver to look like chrome and then sewed on velcro to attach them to the dress.

The sign is made out of cardboard.

How were you able to get the lights to stay in place?

Velcro. I glued the one side to the lights and then sewed the other side on the dress.
