Tornado Costume

The Twister!!!

Costume type:  Costumes for Kids
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for kids entered our 2011 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Amanda, the 'Tornado' costume creator:

My husband, myself and friend Neesha created this costume for my 7 year old son Caden. The tornado was basically a tomato plant cage - fit over my son with some changes. The clouds were stuffing you can find at any store- for pillows ect.we stretched the spider web material you find around the cage. We then spray painted for the color effects. and glued pieces on. We made a storm cloud above his head attached with a wire and placed a strobe light in the cloud to give the effect of lightning. The picture on the costume is of our Welcome to our town sign that I took a picture of and glued to the costume to give it that special effect. As far as the idea, it just popped into my head and we brainstormed from there. I have never seen one quite like it. We had alot of fun making the costume and showing it off. IT WAS THE TALK OF OUT TOWN!!! (cost around $25.00)

I made this costume for my son for Halloween this year. He is a big weather fan and especially tornadoes. He loved it and it was a big hit at school and around town! Thanks for the great idea!!

Where is his face? Can he see or breath?

I am trying to win a Halloween costume contest and I think I am going to use this costume but I want people to know who I am. So I am just going to do the tornado part up to my shoulders.

P.S.I don't want to suffocate either
