This may be difficult to explain, but a little boy came to my door one Halloween and he was dressed as a man holding his own head. He had on a large pair of pants up to his armpits and a large workshirt rigged up to go well over his head with the arms stuffed and the shirt padded. He had his head sticking out between two of the buttonholes and one of the stuffed arms with stuffed gloves coming down and underneath his head.
I don’t know what he rigged up the shirt with; cardboard didn’t work too well for me, but there’s a lot of time left to experiment. Everyone thought he was a riot! Kami in Iowa
