Halloween is right around the corner, but there’s a chance that an unexpected guest might crash your party.
2015 TB145 was discovered two weeks ago by the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, according to a report from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and since the asteroid is scheduled to zoom past Earth at 78,000 mph on Halloween, what better way to celebrate your potential doom than with a rock solid do-it-yourself look from Wholesale Halloween Costumes?!
Now, your costume won’t be nearly as large as 2015 TB145 (the asteroid’s size is estimated to be from 689 to 2,133 feet wide), but it’s sure to be an out-of-this-world hit among your friends!
- One heavy duty black garbage bag
- Yellow spray paint
- Red spray paint
- Red metallic fringe curtain
- Optional orange jumbo glasses
- Black skin suit
- Red and yellow wig
Step 1. Fill the garbage bag with crumbled newspaper or packing material until it is mostly filled. Use a twist tie to seal it closed.
Step 2. In an open area, spray paint the bag with yellow and red paint. Alternate between the two colors, allowing some of the black of the bag to show. When it looks good to you, leave it to dry completely.
Step 3. Empty the bag, but save the stuffing for later. Cut a hole in the sealed end of the bag large enough for you head to fit through.
Step 4. Put the bag on with your head through the hole. Cut holes in the side for your arms.
Step 5. Drape the metallic fringe curtain across your shoulders like a cape and affix it to the bag with strong tape. Cut the length to suit your height.
Now you are ready to put on the costume. Skin suit first, then the bag. Fill the bag with the stuffing and tie the ends of the bags between your legs. Put on the wig and glasses and move as fast as a shooting star!
