THE CREEPIES AND CRAWLIES

The creepies and crawlies are open to many interpretations. Here are some ideas that are easy to make:

Idea 1
Easiest and simplest costume for the creatures would be
• Black sheet
• Gloves
• Head boppers
• Paint your face green and put on oversized aluminous sun glasses which will light up on stage.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Idea 2
Ideally you should use heavy black or coloured material for this costume.
• Tennis ball for eyes
• Heavy material
• Black net for face panel so child can be heard
• Empty kitchen roll tube for the stuffed tail (stuff with newspaper and glue to the back of the material)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Idea 3
• Long sleeved green jumper which covers the hands
• A stuffed tail tied onto the waist
• Head bopper
• Green tights
• A painted striped chest piece (No need for it to go all the way around)
• Green mask

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Idea 4 - DRAGONFLY
• Framework: The frame for the wings could be made from bamboo; willow; or stiff wire. The wings could be a thin gauze or net curtains
• Back wings suspended from shoulder straps.
• Front wings attached to the arms with a band at the elbow which in turn is held to rods placed across the framework, and the child also holds onto rods placed across the framework.
• Costume could be a green t-shirt or tank top; white sleeves and black tights.
• Eyes: black balls attached to the head boppers

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Idea 5 - GARDEN NIGHT CREATURE
• Tatty grey material overlaid with torn ribbons of dark green
• Long nails and gloves from Fancy Dress shop
