Last year for my kindergarten's Halloween party, I made myself a Ghostbuster costume, while my son went in a store-bought Black Spider-Man costume.
This year, he's got the DIY bug, and wants me to create a costume for him. So for the past couple of weekends, we've been working with scrap cardboard, hot glue, and tape to build a basis. Then, this evening I stopped by the "dollar" store and picked up a few things to add to the design. For 2000 won each, I got a black plastic jump rope, an LED flashlight, and some novelty sunglasses. Turns out the LED is too heavy, so I'll have to go back and get a smaller one. But so far, the costume is shaping up well.
Here are some pics:
Yep, my boy wants to be a Predator for Halloween.
While it may not look like much yet, I think it'll look pretty good when I get done with it. And I've still got plenty of time to work on it. Here are the pics from last year.
