Helen creates a bat inspired costume for today's Halloween DIY The Look.

I love bats, I love the way they flit across the sky in a seemingly random manner and at such a speed that you can never get a good look at them. They're mysterious, cute and a tiny bit scary...I'd like to pay homage to these nocturnal acrobats by creating a really cool bat costume. You could dress all in black and hang upside down but that could be a little difficult and give you a headache. Alternatively you could piece together a much more imaginative costume; you'd need a cool pair of wings and some neat ears of course and then you'd have to decide whether to go for a mask or some smoky eye make up...
