Each year, a group of friends and I, get dressed up for Halloween. This year we are going as the Peanuts Gang...Charlie Brown, Pig Pen, Linus, Sally and Lucy to be exact. Here is a sort of tutorial on how I made the costumes:
|We started out covering 24" beach balls with the old fashioned paper mache'....newspaper strips dipped in flour and water mixture.|
The paper mache' clay
|Fully covered and waiting to dry!|
After the first coat dried on Charlie Brown, I added ears. I just took some duck tape and tissues and made a little stuffed ear (wrapped in duck tape, stuffed with tissues) and duct taped it on the side of his head and then did another light coat of paper mache, making sure to blend it in smoothly with the rest of the head.
|This is Charlie's head all dry and painted with a white base coat. The face is just a quick penciled on face.|
|Charlie Brown - just need to add the black netting across the mouth.|
|I purchased replacement head gear that goes in a hard hat, very inexpensive, under a dollar. I just googled it and found it online.|
|I love the way Sally turned out!|
|And here they all are!!! Finished with 1 week left to go! Phew! |
You can see where I linked this to on my side bar of the blog.
