If you are a terrible artist, don’t worry- there are a few tricks to make your lobster look good. The length of the lobster needs to be about six inches wider than your shoulders. Fold the red felt over (you’ll need to double the lobster on the back) and trace a general shape of the lobster. Cut it out (both layers) and now you’re ready to make it look like a lobster.
STEP 5: LOBSTER DETAILS
Using the marker, trace the edges of the lobster and add details. You can also glue sequins around the edge to jazz it up. Draw in an eye and shell details. Now the part that makes it look even better – the legs and feelers. Cut out four curved legs and two pieces for feelers, then line the edges with the marker. Glue them into place. This slight 3-D effect will make the lobster complete. Repeat on the other side.
STEP 6: ASSEMBLY
Leaving a hole for your head, glue the lobster front and back together at your shoulders. After putting on the dress, slip the lobster over your head like a capelet. Curtsey to make the dress full, and voila! You’re a surrealist masterpiece for Halloween!
