Little Red Riding Hood and The Big Bad Cardboard Wolf Halloween Costume by Amber Dohrenwend
This amazing costume by Amber Dohrenwend is made of entirely recycled materials that can again be completely recycled/reused. The wolf head is made entirely of corrugated cardboard, cardboard egg cartons, cardboard fruit liners, paint and white glue -- there is no plastic here! Clothes for the costume were thrifted, from Amber's closet, or reused. The Little Red Riding Hood cape for her daughter was a costume two years prior. The family spends part of the year residing in Tokyo, Japan, and these pictures are from the Kawasaki train station.
First gather a collection of corrugated cardboard, cardboard egg cartons and cardboard fruit box liners
Next make a cardboard skeleton for the wolf mask with lots of cardboard strips and rectangular pieces
Then add features like the teeth, eyes and ears
Lastly, add the white cardboard egg cartons and ripped corrugated cardboard fur
