In 2010, Sheena Boothe, of Poquoson, upped her game by dressing the entire family as ¿Ghostbuster¿ characters. For her dress, she used orange velvet and gold fabric, and accessorized with an orange wig she found online for $15. She borrowed a flight suit from her neighbor for Donald¿s costume, printing out Ghostbuster-themed labels from the Internet to sew on the suit. ¿The proton pack was the most fun to make,¿ she says. ¿I used a cardboard box attached to a backpack and all kinds of things from the recycling bin painted black. There are actually tutorials online on how to make a proton pack as well. I used one made by an 11-year-old as a general guide.¿ For Reed¿s costume, she filled a white sweatshirt and tights and a foam ring with fabric for the hat. Overall, the three costumes cost $50, and she is proud to say that Reed won the Peninsula Town Center costume contest in Hampton that year.
