Cubist Paper Bag Costume

A Halloween book that included faces on paper bags inspired my “Cubism” costume. 
I used a regular brown grocery bag, and started by drawing the split face on one side with a black pastel. For more specifics on how to draw the two-sided face, check out my post here. After the features were drawn in black, I colored white pastel to fill in the background and cover over any logo art. (My Portfolio® brand pastels are pretty opaque.) I continued drawing the hair around the sides, top and back of the bag, always coloring very heavily. I poked two eye holes near the bottom of my nose. I won’t be running any races with this on, but I do think I can make it around the playground once or twice for our school parade. Hope this helps others that need a last-minute costume!
