Jambi Costume from Pee Wee’s Playhouse

This Jambie costume brings back childhood memories. My work provided a box that I formed and hot glued. I spray painted the box, painted the inside black, and used acrylic paint for details. I used gold glitter scrapbook paper for the front doors and hot glued the jewels on. Zip ties let the doors close. In total to build, this was probably an 8-10 hour job.

I’m wearing black clothes and facepaint on my neck to give the illusion of just being a head. Teal facepaint, dark blue for eyes and mouth. Added glitter to eyebrows and cheeks. Make a turban and your done!
