Awesome Boy Edward Scissorhands Costume!
I found this on Instructables.com this morning, well worth sharing with our readers.
>When my son told me that he wanted to be Edward Scissorhands for Halloween, I knew that we were going to have a blast making the costume for him. Everyone in the family had something to add – my son of course offering the piece de resistance by literally becoming Edward that Halloween night 🙂
The costume was originally made for Halloween 2010 from what i can gather. This turns out to be a pretty inexpensive costume but nevertheless a great look!
>Collect belts from used clothing stores. We ended up with ten belts for our then 4 year-old son. Obviously, bigger bodies will need more belts. They were collected over a period of several months anytime we were near a Salvation Army. Find black belts of all shapes and sizes with lots of grommets, studs, big metal buckles, etc. The more visual variety the belts have, the more interesting the costume will look.
For safety purposes, the parents used silver plastic knives and even “file the teeth down with sandpaper”.
