My son Cayson (pronounced Jason, but with a C), is obsessed with Tornados. This Halloween he told me he wanted to be a Tornado. I bought a tomato growing hanger, which is shaped like a funnel, and wrapped it with spider web cotton. After doing this, I spray painted the cotton a dark grey to make it the color of a tornado. After this, I glued farm animals, plastic fences, pretend trees, etc, onto the cotton. I also had Cayson collect different colored leaves and twiggs to glue onto the costume. I used velcrow to make straps that rest on his shoulders to keep the costume on him. He wants to be a "Storm Chaser" when he gets older and follow tornados with cameras. He is 6 years old and it is obsessed with the weather. This was a very interesting costume to try to make, but I think we did a great job and had a lot of fun making it.

My daughter loves weather and wanted to be a tornado. I used poly fil stuffing and painted it gray. I then stuck things in it like farm animals, a tree, a couple people and a bull dozer.

This is my 4yo son Will. Since after he leaves a room it looks like a tornado hit I though it was a perfect fit!

While it's hard to dress up like swirling wind, this tornado costume captures the essence of the chaos with tangled cars, trees and animals that were swept up.
