Need a quick and easy, no-sew costume with items that you have around the house?? Here you go:
--easy- no sewing required
--made from items you have on hand
--appeals to kids who still want to dress up but aren't into characters, etc - costume is great for adults as well
As a poor college student I entered as the Upside-Down Man in a campus activities costume contest - just threw the costume together - and then won $50 - score!
So, I didn't really put together a tutorial for this - it's pretty easy.
--Get a pair of pants and make sure they fit on your head (for kids, the "slims" do not work - or maybe my kids had big heads!) - cut eye holes
--Get a shirt that will reach clear up to the pants - here my 7 year old is wearing a size L men's shirt.
--safety pin the shirt to the pants
--Safety pin a hat/ski mask to the shirt - if you want to go all out, blow up a balloon for the inside of the hat to fill it out more.
--then gloves on the feet (make sure they're the thick kind for comfort in walking) and shoes/socks on the hands
--That's it - - go wow your friends. I think a whole upside-down family would be great - if anyone does that, send me a picture!!
Come back this afternoon for a really fun --CRAFTY-- giveaway!
