Ipod Halloween costume

With the boys getting older, Halloween gets harder to find costumes that aren't childish. This is the ultimate cool kid costume! We got 2 pieces of foam core board from Walmart and some white cord. I used cardstock for the gray area. The circle took 3 pieces of 12x12 paper. I traced the Tupperware Thats-a-bowl for the dial. I cut the letters, apple logo and the arrows out with my cricut and a program called SCAL. If you want to know more about this wonderful money saving program for your cricut, check out Sure Cuts A Lot It is an amazing program!!! We used white cord to make some straps to keep the costume on Bradley's shoulders and to keep it tighter to his body. As for the headphones, I was going to make them with white cord and some screen pieces somehow till we found these at Ross! They are speakers for your Ipod! We made a little pocket inside the costume to put an ipod in so that we can hook it up with the speakers that he is holding. This week we are planning on downloading some Halloween tunes for the big day! Stay tuned later this week for the Rubics Cube costume...
