Re: Need Tree Costume help
Keep in mind that if the actor needs full use of his arms that the
tree really cannot be wider than his arm pit to arm pit measurement.
I would suggest eva foam if you have access to that.
It is sturdy and very light weight.
There is also an aluminum strip available at hardware stores that
could be used for inner supports. I can't think of the name right now
but it is about 1" wide and is very easily bent into shape.
