The Homemade "Airing Our Dirty Laundry" Group Costumes took approximately 16-18 hours and went a little like this: 1. Found an old box, cut it in half and painted it - proceeded to measure and cut out holes once dry. 2. Gathered bottle caps and deli trays, cut and covered them in tinfoil - added knobs and laundry tubs to machines. Designed, printed and added stickers, etc to the control panel. 3. Velcro or glue on accessories such as detergent bottles, plugs, plumbing, and added clothing.
