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

A word from Laura, the 'Yao Ming' costume creator:

My boyfriend, Nathaniel, is dressed up as Yao Ming's bottom half and I am dressed up as Yao Ming's top half. It was the Thursday night before Halloween weekend and Nathaniel and I had no idea what we were going to do for costumes. Being Asian and my boyfriend being 6'4" and the limited choices of known Asian characters and persons due to the lack of Asian representation in media and in Hollywood led us to our awesome costume idea.

We bought two white 3XL jersey shirts and two white 3Xl jersey shorts to glue the corresponding pieces together to make it look like a continuous whole person whenever I got on Nathaniel's shoulders. We had to add extra material to make panels on the side of the shirt to make the bottom wide enough to fit my legs. We also bought a red jersey shirt to cut the strip pieces to glue onto the shirt and shorts. An old GoodWill red T-shirt was used to make the letters and numbers on the front. We found a kid's jersey with the number 13 on the back and even though Yao Ming's number is not 13, we decided it would be aesthetically better to use real jersey number material than not. Sorry Ming! We know your number is actually 11! The whole costume cost about $35
