This is my Halloween costume for 2012. It's the Flying Spaghetti Monster! The
hat started out as a sailor's hat, but I flipped down the brim (mostly because
it was too small for me). Next time, I will use a collander, as suggested by
someone. First, I roughened up some 2" smooth styrofoam balls, so they'd look
more like meatballs. The paint I bought ("burgundy") was too bright red, almost
fuschia, so I spritzed on some black, making them look a lot like meat. The
noodles are 3/16" braided rope meant for clothesline, cut into pieces about 16"
long. (I used all 100 feet.) Since I wanted to dance while wearing this, nothing
is on the right shoulder of the shirt. The wire holding the eyes to the hat is
from 14ga Romex - one side has white insulation. Everything is held together
with hot glue (2 sticks worth). I wanted a shirt that looks like a tablecloth,
and the thrift store delivered. May you be touched by His noodly appendage!
And, I tied for best individual male costume with a fabbo Mad Scientist!
