I’ve decided to take the creative approach this year and put in some hard work and created my very own original home-made costume.
I’ve decided to be my favorite collector’s item… a snow globe! I figured, why not be something I love? This costume actually took about 3 weeks to make. I had to use a decent amount of acetate for the dome and foam for everything else. I used a good variety of spray paint for color and cotton balls to give it that snowy effect. I chose Hawaii because it obviously stands out and reminds me of home. The top of the dome had a little peep hole so that it was easy for people to hand me food and drinks. I’m surprised that the final product was a huge success not to mention it’s a costume I can reuse over and over again! So just ‘Shake It Like A Polaroid Picture’!
Final Sale! No return, no exchanges, no refunds!

      1. Hi Kelly, Hi Karen,

        The base of the costume was being held by my hips. I made the base a little snug so it can sit perfectly around my hips. For the acetate I used the Dura-Lar – thickness is .010. I purchased this on amazon and found it to hold the dome shape quite well compared to the other acetate.

        I originally got the idea from this website :
        I was able to replicate the size and shape from there.

        I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

        Hope the costume turns out great! Thanks for stopping by!
