Looking for ideas for a Costume~
Post By Mandie_Chan. 17/02/10, 02:50 am

To cut a long story very short, I am in charge of making a costume for a competition but I'm not sure where to start and so am asking here for any ideas you wonderful people might have.
*more details at the end if required*

The brief of the costume:
-must be a veggie (fruit?)
-must be mainly green
-costume for 1 or 2 people

With this being the only things known about what the costume MUST be it leaves it fairly open ended but being a cosplayer I have higher standards than a pea sweatdrop

So to the people of CNZ I ask,
1) what would you do?
2) if you wanted to win the costume contest, how would you make your veggie special?
3) would you use/make props?
4) anything else?


extra background if you would like it:

BE A CUCUMBER. Or Corn, with green leaves. If you did brocolli, you could do it as two people - one person in each half of the 'branches', with a shared 'trunk'. o_O

If you had a larger group of people, I would suggest making a green salad, some people as lettuce, some cucumber etc.

I would suggest green kiwifruit but they are brown on the outside and wouldn't be very recognisavble. Perhaps green capsicum?

I found these 2 pics online:


and



or, you could make a green leafy toga, wear a laurel made of lettuce leaves, so that overall you look like a roman in green vegetables. Then when anyone asks, you can say you're a Caesar Salad!
Though I guess, this would be better if you were male.

If you're looking for something different, and it has to be green, try incorporating The Incredible Hulk in the costume.

Or there was a DVD my brother had, Gantz I think was, which had a Green Onion Alien on it.
