Gallery: DIY: How to Make a Bodacious Bodega Costume for Halloween

You can be pretty freeform with this part but please consider including a bodega cat because they are awesome (see below)!


- An empty pizza box - Bags of chips, gum, condoms, Advil – whatever small items you would find at your local bodega. Feel free to use healthier options too! - Safety pins - A printer (or really good handwriting/drawing skills) - Recycled/scrap paper - A black top and pants - Glue - A marker or pen - Xacto knife or safety blade (please be careful and make sure children do not handle sharp objects)

Step 1:

Using a marker or pen, draw an oval on top of the pizza box that is about the size of your head. If you aren’t sure how big your head is, you can use one of your hats as a guide.

Step 2:

Using a safety blade, cut along the oval and remove it. Then use the marker to draw another, slightly smaller oval on the opposite side of the box. Cut that out too. The resulting holes will serve as the space your head will go (basically like a hat).
