Brief Description:

My Daughter was a jar head, making it appear like her head was detached and placed in a jar. When trick or treating she had a lot of double takes with people trying to figure out how we made it. It was definitely an eerie costume!

Materials:

plastic pretzel container, overcoat, cardboard box, duct tape, exacto knife, stuffing for arms, black gloves, black pants and black shirt

Time to Create:

3-5 hours
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your gingerbread house or holiday cookie is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
