The Gremlins are back. Instructables user grutherford2 is bringing them back for Halloween. He made two bright green Gremlins costumes for Halloween that look pretty perfect. It involved crafting paper mache heads and sewing the costumes. He and his helper used Plasticine to sculpt and mold the faces and then added them to the heads with paper mache; they did the same with the ears but the ears were made from cardboard and foam. This is how they made the eyes:
We used ping pong balls for our eyes. I used permanent marker to create the look of the eyes and then used a two part clear epoxy to create the glossy look. Once these were dry, we cut the ping pong balls in half and drilled holes in the eyes for us to see out of.
