    I was trying to find a good tree looking costume to hide in the woods and jump out. I like to find "besides camouflage/mossman outfit.
    Or what other costume would work great to blend in with the woods. I found cornstalk looking costumes but too expensive. Any ideas? I do not want a fake looking monster or something similar. I want something more realistic.

    Thanks

    Do you want a supernatural creature, or what do you mean by realistic?
    Bigfoot? Werewolf? If you want real your choices are much more limited. Keep up the dialog so we can narrow down your wants.

    @Allen. Sounds like he wants to look like he's part of the tree or forest before he attacks. I saw somebody had a tutorial video of using crutches and vines to make a tree creature, the actor could pull the crutches in close and be invisible and then open up like a pod, the crutches were like extra long front legs.

    @Jmullens- LOL that is one of my tutorial vids. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vqre5XD5jYs
    I got it, reading the post a fifth time its all clear to me now. Yes, I think the arm crutches are a great way to go. In that case here are a few pics of tree suits i have done for inspiration. I dont have time to make anything this season however someone else might.

    All the staves you see in those pics are modified versions of the arm crutches, they fold over the body hiding the shape untill they swing open and surprise the guests.
    here are a few simple make up options, the base of this make up is a crumpled brown hand towel (the knd that come on a roll) they work great!
    Keep in mind, the make up is finished the costume isint on in these pics. Now that I know where he is headed I have more to offer- my mistake for reading it wrong....4 times. Good thing Im so pretty cause I aint bright.
