Insane Illusion Costumes Anyone Can Make
It’s never too early to start planning your Halloween costume, especially if you plan on wearing one of these insanely awesome illusion ones.
Luke Skywalker Riding a Tauntaun Costume
Maria Dragone (what a great name!) provides instructions and plenty of photos on how she made this rad costume for her 7-year-old son, complete with used pantyhose guts. Click here for instructions.
Chewbacca Carrying Han Solo
Sometimes a brother needs a hand. This costume has Chewy carrying an injured Han Solo. More details here.
Atreyu Riding Falcor From The Neverending Story
Everyone’s going to dress like the kids from Stranger Things this year. Take your fandom to the next level by modeling this rad (totally tubular?) costume based on the hit ’80s movie. Laura Kenora provides step-by-step instructions in this Instructable.
Mario Riding Yoshi Costume
Although you can buy them pre-made from Amazon, Tabitha, a gifted seamstress, made this Mario and Yoshi costume from scratch for her son. Here are her instructions.
Jasmine on the magic Flying Carpet
Have Aladdin on the brain? Make everyone else speechless with this floating Jasmine costume.
Elf on a Shelf Costume
We have fond memories of our Elf on the Shelf. Kudos to mom Crystal for making this costume! Fair warning: creating the fireplace requires some carpentry skills, but the results are well worth it.
Game of Thrones Costume
Didn’t like how Game of Thrones ended? You can easily modify this amazing costume to put the hero of your choice on the Iron Throne (we were rooting for Sansa or Aria). It’s not just a chair, but a cardboard box with fake legs that you can walk around in. Love!
Olenna Tyrell on the Iron Throne
Finally, there’s our favorite costume of all worn by our personal hero, an 87-year-old granny who decorated her wheelchair to look like the Iron Throne.
