You will need:
This simple costume creates the illusion that you are being carried on a midgets shoulders.
- An old human face mask
- An old pair of pants, long sleeve shirt, and shoes
First stuff the pants,shoes, and sleeves of the shirt with newspaper or some other cheap stuffing. Now somehow attach the shoes onto the legs of the pants (heavy staples,sewing, both ect...) Now attach the fake legs to your child's waist so they stick straight out.
These will look like your child's legs in the end. now stuff the mask and attach it to the shirt. Place the mask inbetween the fake legs and wrap the fake arms around the legs, and attach the whole thing so it stays in place. This can be tricky.
For the final touch, have your child wear a regular pair of pants, and a pair of shorts over them around his knees so the shorts touch the bottom of the fake shirt and the top of his real shoes. Now your childs legs look like the midget's and what looks like his real legs are fake!
Thanks to Jinks for this very neat idea!
