Halloween: Elevated Ghost Costume

Hi from Canada! Halloween is bigger than Christmas here in Quebec, Canada, and the costumes are wonderfully unique.

For example, take one three foot kid and tie a light aluminum broom handle vertically to his back. Two strings should do the job holding the handle in place. One string wrapped just below the arm pits and over the shoulders like a school bag strap, the other string tied around at waist level. Duct tape a round beach ball or strong balloon on top of the broom handle.


Now we are ready for our Ghost Sheet. Take one soon-to-be-discarded bed sheet and throw it over the ball, and tie it securely with tape or string at the throat of your ghost. Then paint on a pumpkin face. Use your imagination but make it as colorfully vivid as possible with bright paint. When someone opens their house door, the ghost face is what they should see first. You can also use a Halloween mask taped to the round face.

Now your costume is almost ready. Cut out holes in the Sheet where your child's eyes will peek through and you have a six foot ghost with small hands at knee level holding a Candy Bag. Have Fun and Happy Halloween!
