CP4 Now, measure and cut the same elastic the length of the waist, just above the elbows, and the wrists. This means if you purchase through a link on my site, I may receiv e a small commission at no cost to you.
Once completely through, overlap and pin the ends of the elastic together, like below.
FT4 Time to adorn the collar to give it the signature Stay Puft look! The battery and fan were attached to a heavy 5in or so nylon belt that was held by velcro and the fan had a tube of the same nylon material that went down to the costume to help fill it up.
I then took some felt and cut out a next area for the sailor bib. Be sure not to iron directly on the felt — it will melt! Trace 1 shoulder line and half of the neckline onto the felt.
Secure a safety pin on the the end and feed through the waistband. Also pin the middle point of the elastic at the outer leg side, like below.
Align the top of the neckline at the top of the felt square. Now I am able to see out of the Stay Puft costume. Next, with right side facing each other, again, pin the front to the back at the inner legs.
How cute! Everyone loved the costume and kept wanting pictures with it. So I was one day watching my favorite and best movie of all time Ghostbusters.
I next debated on making Stay Puft's sailor cap out of something different or just make it out of chicken wire as well. Hahaha, awesome. FriendOfHumanity 6 years ago on Introduction.
If it was a synchronous motor the whole project would be canned but it turns out that when I hooked up a 12vdc power source the fan turned on and worked as it normally would. I plan on taking it out on Halloween and acting like a normal lawn decoration until people get closer. Really impressive work. So this is my first Instructable, so bare with me if I don't make this correct.
Cut 2 pieces of elastic at each of these 3 lengths. Ghostbusters is big in our house right now. The base of the costume is done!
