This homemade costume for boys entered our 2016 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Eliza, the 'Pee-Wee and Edward Scissorhands' costume creator:

These are my sons: Django (PeeWee Herman) and Roosevelt (Edward Scissorhands). Django's favorite movie is PeeWee's Big Adventure. He has the whole thing memorized and this is what inspired their costumes. For Edward Scissorhands' hands I cut craft foam into long triangles then stitched them together leaving the short end open so he could put his fingers through and move them. There are five blades on each hand - one for each finger. This came in very handy when treat-givers would ask him what he would want - he would just point to it with one of his blades. I then bent straws and covered them with duct tape to create the look of scissor handles. Lastly I attached velcro squares to the wrists so they could easily be removed & replaced. For his suit I covered a plain black turtleneck and leggings with duct tape, a punk rock belt of mine strung through the shoulders and back, other leather items of mine I cut up and attached and key rings strung through to look like zippers. I bought a crazy wig and trimmed it to look like Edward's hair and added some make-up. The best part though was his serious and silent demeanor throughout the evening... a natural I suppose! For PeeWee's bike I spray painted his regular bike red. I then bought a Tiger, decapitated it and strung a piece of elastic through the neck. I then cut a pool noodle end off, and using duct tape, secured the Tiger onto it with the help of its elastic. I then pulled it tight and secured it to the bike. For the swirl I printed a swirl from my computer and self laminated it. I even made the red bowtie. As a special treat Paul Ruebens himself got a hold of the pic & told Django how much he loved it - this was awesome for the little guy!
