Halloweenology - The Costumes of Halloween
The October 31st Holiday
The Sneaker Wearing Zombies are proud to bring you the coolest Halloween costume ideas online!
I love Halloween and creating cool costumes. This is my most popular design that I created on the spur of the moent on Haloween. See if you can figure out how I did it...
I create a fake casket out of cardboard and cut a hole in the bottom. I then created fake legs and placed them in the coffin. Then I created a fake monster head with wig and connected it to the top of the coffin. The cape is the part that hides the hole and where I enter the box. I would slip into a sweatshirt and pull it over the fake body in the box.
The fake hands were handmade also but you can now find monster hands that would look much better. Place them so it looks as though they are carrying th coffin.
That's about it! Looks like I'm in the coffin and a big creey guy is carrying me. Build your own!
More on the way!!
Pair of Dice
For 2 children, take 2 cardboard boxes, paint them white (You can get a medium size can of white paint at WalMart). Cut out several black circles (From construction paper) and glue them in the appropriate places to make your 2 children into a pair of dice!
From a Cardboard box:
Cover with table cloth, glue on silver plastic platter in the middle (cut hole for head to pop through. Glue on a couple of place settings of Plastic dishes, and glasses. Now your head in on a silver platter.
Wrap it in Christmas paper, add a large bow.. now you are a Christmas present.
Paint it silver, glue on a few extras from around the house..now you are a robot.
A Bunch of Grapes
