I bought some black crepe that was discounted to $1.97 a yard for having a flaw and I couldn't seem to find, and some felt and plastic hair combs for the eyeballs. This costume was under 10 bucks to make. Seriously. I just made a little body, stuffed some spider legs, and connected them with some string. I also used elastic to attach the legs to my wrists so I could have my hands free for eating and playing games during the evening. Some black leggings combat boots, and fun make-up were the finishing touches! Kris used a grey belt, some metal rings, the metal bottom of two lightbulbs, and a little wooden block to make his Zomcon collar.
We were quite the festive and crafty couple!
He and his buddies also made all sorts of crazy food including a graveyard cake, zombie punch with spooky dry ice fog, jalapeno artichoke dip that looked like brains, bat wings, and other great things. They used (sanitized!) barbie and doll parts as drink stirrers and food servers, too!
P.S... I'm planning on making a dress this weekend :)
