Here are instructions from Evil Mad Scientist about how to transform a basic black commuter Umbrella to Halloween DIY Costume. The only materials that you will need are an umbrella and a hooded zippered sweatshirt, and you will also need some tools and supplies: needle and thread, pins, pliers, scissors, and something to cut the umbrella ribs, such as tin snips, bolt cutters, or cutting pliers. What a great cheap way to get a fancy costume.
Victorian Halloween costume. It’s so fancy!
