Snail Man Halloween Costume by Ben Hutchens
Ben Hutchens made this crazy snail Halloween costume from scratch. It took him over 2.5 hours to walk/slither down Lincoln Road in Miami, but he became an instant celebrity! He was stopped countless times for photos and even did some extra crawling/slithering down the street to maintain character.
HOW TO MAKE THIS COSTUME
Use an innertube create the base shape so that it can serve as a guide for the shell.
Apply pieces of cardboard fixed inside with tape to create a "faceted" shell.
Use yellow paint as a base and a wood varnish to give the shell texture and depth.
Insert a belt so the costume can be worn like a backpack.
