D.I.Y. or DIE: “Wood Hand”
Instructables is a haven for DIYers, chock full of wondrous inventions and life hacks anyone could learn from. Delving into the realm of costumes (and after playing a lengthy amount of Skyrim), I was ecstatic when I came across this little beauty:
Instructables user Prototyp 18 came up with his seriously simple “Wood Hand” project that can transform you into a dryad overnight. His variation uses oak bark, but he states that any medium can be used. If you tackle this project, go the extra step further and go to your local thrift store or Goodwill for the gloves (or shoes, or any other clothing you’re thinking of making this with.)
Could you imagine scaring children, or even adults with this? Oh, the reactions would be priceless.
