Post-Packaged Jellyfish Halloween Costume by Joshua Smith
Joshua Smith had been collecting all the packaging supplies that his office had received for a few months and he wanted to make a cool costume out of the pieces. The jellyfish tentacles are made with packaging balloons and strips of bubble wrap, while the bell is made of layers of packaging balloons and saran wrap over a metal wire frame. LEDs and iridescent plastic scraps are sandwiched between for a cool lighting effect.
Bend 18 gauge wire into a large exterior hoop, a smaller neck hoop, and connect the two with wire struts.
Wrap the frame in saran wrap to give it a rounded shape. Add additional layers of plastic for desired effect.
Cut curved foam tube packaging material into shoulder mounts and attach to inside of frame.
Attach tentacles as desired.
