KUSA - What would Halloween be without the 9NEWS Halloween morning team costume bash?
This year, we went the homemade route as Gary, Kyle, Corey, Amelia and Becky transformed themselves into upside down people. It's easy to do if you want to try it yourself, and if you do, send us the pics!
Make An Upside Down Person Costume
*Buy a pair of large pants, big enough that you can pull it down to your belly-button and fit a head and arm in one leg.
*Make two small slits in the pants, one for your eyes and one for your mouth.
*Tape a tie (must be a REAL tie, no clip-ons) to a big long-sleeve shirt (button-up works best). Duct tape is best, but any thing that can hold the tie when the shirt is upside-down works.
*Get a mannequin head. You can find them at most Halloween stores (they're usually where the masks are) and they don't cost much.
*Secure the mannequin head in the shirt by tightening the tie around its neck.
*Duct tape a pair of gloves to your shoes and get a pair of shoes for your hands.
*Put on the costume. Start with the shirt. With the buttons (front) facing forward, slowly pull it up with your legs in the sleeves.
*Put your shoes (the ones with the gloves) on your feet.
*Put on the pants, with a head and an arm in one leg and your other arm in the other leg (make sure that the eye and mouth holes are in the right places).
*Go to the mirror to check out the costume to make sure you put it on correctly. Go have some Halloween fun!
