This homemade costume for men entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Binyomin, the 'Mounted Deer Head Trophy' costume creator:

I made this costume for myself to wear. I have no particular obsession with stuffed animal heads; I just wanted to wear the most annoying and cumbersome costume! I had the idea for a mounted head but I thought it would be impossible to do. I searched around online, and I found someone on this website who had done something similar, so that gave me the confidence to go ahead with this idea :)

The wall is made out of black foam board, purchased at Michael's (framing department). I used masking tape to make the lines between the bricks, and I used a stone-textured spray paint to make the bricks. I peeled off the tape and I had a brick wall!
The fireplace was made out of a spray-painted cardboard box. I bought a rechargeable 3-inch fan on Amazon and taped strips of tissue paper to it to make a dancing fire, and I attached a little disc-shaped LED light (Loew's Home Improvement) to the inside (top) of the fireplace to light up the "fire". I used toilet paper and paper towel rolls for the logs, and I used a glue gun to hold everything in place. The whole fireplace is glued to the wall with craft glue.
The mantelpiece is made out of Styrofoam that I painted black, with another piece of the black foam board glued on top.
The cardboard book is from Michael's. The frame is from Michael's, and there's a tiny picture of a hunter with his kill in the frame. The vase is from eBay, the faux flower is from Walmart, and there's actually a peacock feather in there too, from Michael's. There's a little electrical outlet (sticker from eBay) on the wall, on the right side of the fireplace.
The wall is actually made of two pieces, connected by two-inch Velcro. The fireplace part was removable.
The antlers were from Amazon and the face paint was done by the wife.

Wow, What creativity! Really impressed with the concept and design. Wish I'd thought of this myself.

Brilliant!!! That is some unbelievable costume, and probably took weeks to execute. It's extremely creative and I love how the baby is matching!
