I know you were JUST thinking, "Darn, I want to be a Flaming Carrot for Halloween!"
Inspired by the infamous comic book series, The Flaming Carrot, created by funny man Bob Burden, a twisted soul by the web name of RoG shows you in his blog exactly how to create the costume which guarantees you'll be a hit at all the Halloween parties. With his merticulous DIY directions, accompanied by plenty of photos, you get the step-by-step to the point where you're thinking, "Boy, I could do this."
I know you're wondering "But how does he make it flame?" RoG explains on his site that he uses "Pumpkin-safe" lights which you can buy anywhere. He explains:
They're basically little green tubes that you can jab down into pumpkins with removable light bulbs. When you have batteries placed in them, they'll flicker on 'n off. Granted there's plenty of other ways you can light the thing up, but I found the pumpkin lights to be both the coolest looking and most efficient method. I recommend getting roughly three of them. And don't worry, they're fairly cheap at only 2 bux a pop. Instead of jabbing them into a pumpkin, you simply jab them down into the styrofoam circle that you cut out and they will not budge. Perfecto!
