Roller Coaster Costume for Cosplay & Halloween
When you hear the words ‘thrill ride,’ the first thing you probably envision is a roller coaster. Everybody knows what a roller coaster is (although not all find them fun). If you want a costume that’s both hilarious and universally-known, go as your own roller coaster!
Going as a roller coaster is perfect if the costume is for a pair or a large group. While you will need to do a bit of extensive DIY-ing, the materials you’ll be using are easy to procure. That includes a moving box, pool noodles, a PVC pipe, and duct tape to name a few. Here’s everything you need to look like you’re in a Roller Coaster.
