In 2020, I’d say the newest verb to hit the lexicon is “to zoom.” Kids, executives, and college friends…we all zoom. All. The. Time. What was just an onomatopoeia word back in February, is now a non, a verb…a whole new way of living!
So when I embarked upon a 2020 Halloween Costume project with Primary, I knew that I needed to tackle Zoom as one of my costumes. And what is Zoom? It’s business up top, party on the bottom…am I right? Primary has so many amazing basics that feel so soft and cozy, you’d actually never know you were wearing a button-down.
Download our printable to make the color-yourself Zoom frames, and iron-on the “mute” symbol onto a Primary mask.
Create a 1/2″ border of black tape around the cardboard. Fold the tape over to cover the edges.
Print out the template 1 and template 2 (each template has a mix of different face styles); cut and color the frames to match your classmates. Write the names in the lower left-hand corner.
Glue the frames to the cardboard, leaving the center clear (for most, you’ll need about 18 colored frames.)
Measure the height and width of your child’s head and sketch their head-shape on a piece of cardstock. Cut it out. Trace this shape onto the top of the cardboard.
Carefully cut out the head shape from the cardboard with the x-acto knife.
Cut a piece of elastic that stretches over the back of the face opening, measuring it against the child’s head. Glue it to either side of the opening
To make the mask, print this template onto iron-on material or using red vinyl on your Cricut (we sized ours to 3″ tall). Iron the design to the mask following the instructions on the materials’ packaging.
This is such a fun DIY Halloween costume because your kids will really get into helping you with the coloring and naming the members of the Zoom! Thanks to Primary for the amazing clothes that made this happen!
