KIDS: DIY Zoltar costume

The DIY Zoltar costume would be a great kid or adult costume! Sadly, I bet a lot of kids don’t remember Zoltar! I remember it from the movie, Big. This is another really awesome handmade costume by Arlene (who also made this amazing DIY airplane costume). She used the same technique with cardboard and butcher paper and used duct tape, staples, and a glue gun to adhere the pieces to one another. I love that her DIY Zoltar costume even has a paper fortunes card coming out of the slot! (Fun fact: Zoltar had 16 spoken fortunes and 23 paper fortunes!)
