I didn't make arm holes, in order to preserve the integrity of the costume. I suffer for my art. You're welcome.

It’s a pretty simple costume to make. You just need a box; nine squares each of red, orange, yellow, white, green, and blue paper; and some black electrical tape. The place I went to buy paper didn’t have a good blue, so I only had five colors to work with. This meant I had to be “solved.”

My favorite line of the night was when a guy on the street said to me, “I’ll never figure you out.”

On a related note…this is awesomesauce:
