Homemade Halloween Photobooth Strip Costume

Here’s a really quick and easy Halloween costume idea – especially if you have access to a photobooth in your area. We had Moses put on a wig and take some fun shots in the photobooth. Then we blew up the strip at Kinkos and glued it to big piece of cardboard. We cut out the photo second from the top so that he had the perfect spot to place his face. For Halloween, he just has to wear the same shirt he wore in the booth along with the wig and hold up the strip while he walks. So much fun!

    Dude, this idea is FANTASTIC! And it’s so perfectly timed, because (just this morning) I was trying to figure out how to top the costume I wore to my office last year.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Jordan! I think I just found my ticket to winning “Best Costume”, at work, this year.

    That is the absolutely cutest thing. I’m a little tempted to try it out, but I don’t think I could pull it off as well as he does!!

    How bout take pictures of the back of his head too, make straps to go over his shoulders so he can wear it like a sandwhich board?

    I kind of hate costumes where you have to hold things in your hands the whole time…makes it hard to really carry the candy bag…

    What a brilliant idea. That’s really cool and fun. He seems enjoying it. And I am pretty sure no one else will have the same costume as him.
