How to Make an Illusion Costume
Instructions for making an amazing Halloween costume!
The illusion costume looks amazing, and it can be hard to figure out how to make one. Here are the instructions!
Start with a costume of the character you want to have carrying you. This can be a monster, a gorilla, a witch, clown, even a giant chicken! Use your imagination or go with a costume you already have laying around.
First make some fake legs by stuffing a pair of your pants with newspaper or quilt batting. Fasten some socks onto the end of the pants. Some sites suggest using duct tape, but if you really want it to stay on you should probably sew it. It does not have to be pretty. Just baste it on there. Then fasten the pants to a belt you can put around your waist to hold the pants up. These are going to hang on the front of your body, so your bottom will not be in them. They will hang in the front like an apron.
Next cut a hole in the belly of the costume. Your legs & hips are going to be inside the costume, but the top part of the costume will be behind you.
You will put the top of the costume over a tall backpack that you will strap over your shoulders. You will need to fashion a head by stuffing something inside a rubber mask and fastening it to the top of the backpack.
Then stuff the costume arms and wrap them around your waist to make it look like the monster, ghost, witch, duck or whatever is carrying you.
With these instructions in mind, you can easily create all sorts of variations! Have fun and please send me a link to a photo of your costume! If I like it will add it to this webpage!
