You haven’t started your costume yet?
Not to worry! If you’re a procrastinator like myself, just put together a few sketches (take a peek at the Pinterest board if you need some help) so you feel like you’ve done something, and start collecting cardboard like crazy until that magic moment strikes you….
Here’s a peak inside my notebook:
Idea for a bicycle costume, (that has nothing to do with any of the other costume ideas I’ve got planned.)
The box on wheels sketch that is waiting for inspiration. I know this would be perfect for taking our 1 1/2 year daughter around in for Halloween. It has great costume potential as some kind of vehicle. Any ideas?
The costume I’m working on for myself. A wolf in sheep’s clothing. I have a big, shaggy, white sheep’s wool jacket to pair with a cardboard wolf’s head.
My 3 year old daughter’s costume choice, which if I did not happen to be the ringleader of a cardboard costume challenge, I probably wouldn’t make out of cardboard. But hey, what can you do?
Other ideas I’ve been saving up….. I always wanted to go as the Chinese characters for double happiness with my husband, but it keeps getting moved to the bottom of the costume idea list…..maybe next year?
It’s not too early to start posting pictures of your process, your ideas or your cardboard pile to the Flickr pool. Sharing a little bit of your construction process can help everybody get inspired to start work on even a small part of their costume……it all adds up!
All right then, sketch, photograph, upload, collect (lots of cardboard)…
