How to Make a Solar Panel Halloween Costume and Other Costume Ideas
Halloween is right around the corner! Even though Halloween will look different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many families are finding ways to enjoy the holiday with close friends and neighbors. If you are going to be ready for the festivities, then now is the time to start working on costumes.
Climate Change Costumes
Some families enjoy the collaboration of matching costumes. If you are climate-conscious and want to share your passion with others, then why not choose costumes related to climate change? Here are a few ideas:
- Sunshine: Dress in yellow, including a yellow tutu and a small handbasket with a “vitamin D” sign. You can find sunshine beam headbands, or create your own using tutu fabric.
- Solar Array: A little bit of cardboard, black paint, and tin foil can be the perfect combination for making a DIY solar panel costume. Cut the cardboard into rectangular shapes – with one for the front and another for the back. Then, paint the cardboard black. Draw the patterns of the solar array using tin foil or silver paint. Consider adding a yellow hat or headband with sunbeams above the solar panel.
- Rain Cloud: Quilt stuffing and some cardboard raindrop-shaped pieces can create a homemade raincloud costume. You can attach the cloud on a shirt. Or, use an umbrella covered in the stuffing or cotton balls, with strings hanging down to hold the raindrops.
