Brain Storm a Pun Costume This Halloween

How do you make a Brain Storm costume? Looks pretty easy to me.

You will need:

  • Yellow Felt or Card Stock
  • Gray Shirt
  • Cotton Balls
  • Hat
  • Long Beads
  • Hot Glue Gun & Sticks

Cut a lightning bolt shape out of some yellow card stock paper or out of some yellow felt. Pin or glue it on a gray shirt. Make your storm by gluing cotton balls onto a flat-brimmed hat. Hang some raindrop beads from the clouds so they surround your body, as shown in the picture. Hot glue is going to be your best friend in making this costume, but don't think it's difficult, 'cause it really isn't.

Killer B Costume

To make your own Killer B costume you will need:

  • Cardboard Letter B (trace the letter onto a cardboard box and cut it out)
  • Yarn (or string or elastic to make a shoulder strap to hang the B)
  • Yellow Paint & Brush
  • Black Pants & Shirt
  • Red Paint ...the blood on the B
  • A Toy Weapon

The letter B should be painted yellow and splattered with red paint. Glue the elastic straps onto the letter B. Or you can make a hole in the B and tie the yarn, string, or elastic through the holes to make arm loops.

Dress in a black shirt and pants. Put on the B and carry the toy weapon.

Another look is shown below with guns and bullets used as the weapon.

I got a cooler just like this from my local liquor store . . . wonder if yours has one for you? If not, check out Amazon (where they have everything). I found one for about five dollars.
