I have a penchant for elaborate Halloween costumes. This year my boyfriend and I want to go as
, but I'm struggling with how to create an Eve costume.
(This is anonymous because I also have a penchant for surprising family and friends with my elaborate Halloween costumes)
I found this tutorial
but am not happy with their flimsy fabric suggestion. I want the body and head to be separate and have a hard, smooth outer shell. I also want to match Eve's shape as closely as possible.
So far my best idea is to build everything out of paper mache. I've built smaller pieces for past costumes, but a humongous egg shape is a daunting task to undertake in my little 1-bedroom apartment!
The other thought I had was to use a lightweight plastic garbage can (white, or covered in white fabric) but internet searches are not turning up anything that is both big enough and appropriately-shaped. Ideally, I'd want something like this
, but actually big enough for an adult to fit into.
Any ideas, oh crafty people of ask.me?
