“This is my personal take on the Predator! Skins are all latex. All painted using prosaide and acrylics. Bones are chicken/turkey bones. This is easily one of my favorite costumes but also one of the hardest ones for me to wear!”

“This is a centaur costume that I created for my son Isaiah. It attaches at his waist with a wide belt and rolls behind him on training wheels. I constructed the horse body using chicken wire for the armature. I then upholstered it with polyester quilt batting and, finally, velour. His vest and “apron” are made from leather shirts that I found at a thrift store. The tail is a fake ponytail. It was definitely a big project, but it was a huge hit, so it was worth the effort!”

“This was created the night before my son’s school Halloween party. It is typical for us to wait last minute, sadly, however we always manage to get really creative under pressure! Everything is made from recycled items, except the grey and black eyeshadow that was purchased for his face. We used a painted fridge box panel for the chair (it’s one piece like a pop-up card), a used tyveck jumpsuit from a mechanic friend with sharpie prison stripes, copper wire and tubing left over from home renovation, old leather belt and leather like fabric I had in my craft supplies, and my kitchen strainer for the headgear(which ended it’s straining days). It was a fun project to work on together!”
