This is my Halloween Costume. It’s not easy to walk in, and I can’t sit, but one must suffer for one’s art! I love the playful potential of Halloween. Talking, moving ice cream cone? Now that’s my idea of entertainment! I guess it appeals to the big kid in me, and I love to make people laugh.
I used a plastic garbage can lid (to form the top of the ice cream), a plastic saucer (formerly under a garden pot—as the top of the cone), duct tape, hot glue, chicken wire, quilt batting, cardboard, cotton stretch material, paint, pipe cleaners, plastic mesh and felt.
