I made this costume for a local fun run. It was a bit challenging but I actually ran the entire 3 miles inside the snow globe. I had a few ohhs and ahhs, a handful of wow– check out the snow globe, and a number of CAN YOU BREATH in there! (No worries, I had a hole cut out in the back to allow air flow.)
The base was made from a chair cushion cut to fit around my waist. From there I added layers of foam, spray paint, sand, and shells to add depth to the base of the snow globe. I used sheets of laminating plastic for the globe portion which was a bit tricky to get to stay up at first, but I got it, but for good measure and to keep everything up while running I added a line of fishing line to keep things from falling in. A few lei’s a grass skirt and a coconut top and I was good to go.
