Things You'll Need
- Garbage bag
- Green spray paint
- Green glitter
- Green beanie cap
- Yellow googly eyes set
- Pillows or foam padding
- Duct tape
- Green pants
- Green face paint
- Novelty teeth
- Green silly string
Use the green spray paint to paint the garbage bag. Before letting it dry, sprinkle glitter on it.
Glue the yellow googly eyes to the front of your green beanie cap.
Cut off the corners of the bottom of the trash bag, leaving holes just big enough to fit your arms through. Cut a slit in the middle of these two holes for your head to fit through.
Use pillows or foam for padding the body of your Slimer costume. Secure the pillows/foam in place with duct tape.
Put on the green pants.
Put the trash bag on over the padding.
Paint your face green with the green face paint.
Insert the novelty teeth in your mouth. It is preferable if the novelty teeth look like they are rotting and full of gaps.
Put on the green beanie cap with the googly eyes.
Carry the green silly string, and use it as the Slimer's "ectoplasm." Spray it, avoiding any people's eyes or personal property.
