The Yellow Submarine Costumes
This costume took me nine hours to make but it was definitely worth it. I constructed the whole thing out of cardboard and taped the periscopes to the hat. I used one of the portholes on each side for my arms to stick through, and placed pictures of the Beatles in the others. ( two on each side). It was very difficult to mold the cardboard but after wrestling with it and with the help of packing tape, I was able to form the shape. I drew the designs free hand with markers and used yellow and white paper to cover it. On the back I wrote the Beatles logo in black marker, but you can’t see it in the picture. To finish it off I wore yellow tights and put a picture of Jeremy the Nowhere Man in the top porthole. I was very pleased with this costume as I had never made anything like this before.
