How to make a fish tank costume:
Consider using an old cardboard box as the basis of your costume:
If you have a large box that is alot larger than your head, it’s a great idea to repurpose your old, large box to use as the basis of your fisk tank. The key is to cut out sections of your cardboard box so that the cardoboard box keeps its structure but that it has open sections with will allow you to breathe normally. As your fishtank costume shouldn’t restrict your breathing.
Decorate the front of your “fishtank ” so that it looks just like a real fish tank;
To make it clear that your cardboard box is infact a fish tank, it’s a fun idea to deocrate the front of your cardboard fishtank so that it looks just like a real fishtank. For example, you may want to stick plastic fish, a star fish and some fake seaweed in the front of your cardoboard fishtank to make it look like a genuine fish tank. You can even use invisible string in order to hang your artificial fish and sea themed decorations, down around your head. To give the illusion that your head is in the middle of a real fish tank.
Wear a plain black outfit so that your body doesn’t distract people from the clever fishtank portion of your costume:
If you’re wondering what clothes to wear with your fish tank outfit, you can’t go wrong opting for a plain black outfit so that your body doesn’t distract from the illusion that you’re trying to create, that your head is stuck in a fish bowl. As an example, if you don’t know what to wear you may want to dress like a theater stage hand and to pair a long sleeve cotton shirt with a pair of black pants such as workout pants.
Place a funny sign on the outside of your fishtank:
One way to make your friends laugh is to place a funny yet simple sign on the outside of your fisk tank that tells observers not to tap on the glass. As such signs are frequently found at aquariums and pet stores that sell fish.
Consider painting your face as a clown fish:
If your friends and family memberes have all watched Finding Nemo, you may want to paint your face so that you’ll look just like Nemo!
So if you don’t like wearing store brought costumes and prefer costumes that involve a lot of creativity and ingenuity, you can’t go wrong making a homemade fishbowl costume.
