With just under two weeks to go to Halloween, and a mid-intersection check in from my friend SJ, it was time to make a little more progress on our train costumes.
As you know, we went with the boxes (read about the earlier phase here.) Then I found the perfect paper: letter-sized transparent and sticky. It’s like a giant, see-through sticker.
That let me create some sides and a front for our subway, which you can see in the photo. Unfortunately the flash makes it look like I simply printed the side and front views out on ordinary pieces of paper and adhered them. In reality, it makes for a great, somewhat seamless and transparent effect.
One W train down and either another W or two Fs to go. (Have to check with the little engineer.) Also planned are black wheels that will be able to turn, and of course, straps, so we can ‘wear’ our trains.
To end, i love the punniest piece of all from friend SS. “Excellent. you know the W train was discontinued, right? So you guys are going as the ‘Ghost of the W train.”
