How to Create the Filter Effect

How to make a Facebook pride rainbow filter costume


Sorry that you had to purchase so much cello wrap for just a tiny square, but you can alway share with friends and make it a group costume! A Facebook group, if you will. Just use a pair of scissors to cut approximately even strips of each color, and adhere them to the back side of a poster board square with tape. Make sure you cut your square opening large enough to fit your kisser inside! For an extremely portable costume you could just stop at this step, but come on, It's Halloween. Go the extra it for LGBT pride! We just used a gigantic piece of cardboard and proceeded to decorate our "profile page" with classic Facebook details and symbols. Use your real name on the cardboard "page" if you want to get a whole bunch of new friend requests before your Halloween reveling is over!
