Description

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.

Material Notes

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.

    Thank you, Mary! It was fun to make and I always love a good project as justification for ignoring boring household chores…!
