This homemade costume for girls entered our 2017 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Renee, the 'Pink Camera' costume creator:
This is genius if I might say so... I used a life jacket the vest kind and secured a flat screen/not too heavy TV to the back of it.Then I made a big box look like a camera by using felt, silver and black tape, spray glue and a bucket for the lens and plastic caps from spray cans for the buttons. I used a 5x7 picture frame as the square.I cut a hole for the TV to pop out of - so once we put the box over her head the TV popped out the back hole of the box. I then used my IPhone and taped that in the frame so she could take pictures. I ran a UBS cable from the phone to the TV and taped all the wires inside the box. Now the only thing is you MUST have another person STAND NEXT TO THE CAMERA AT ALL TIMES this person carries a shoulder strap bag that holds the battery. The TV has to have power from somewhere. So wherever the camera goes so does the battery holder person. That was a bit tricky to get around crowds. So when she took the picture - she would then turn around and show the people the picture on her back. Remember to ALWAYS put your phone on Airplane Mode before the event or you will get calls and the text will read on her back! In large letters for everyone to read. (We learned that the hard way) LOL
