Gilligan's Island Costume with Wearable SS Minnow Boat

My son wanted to be Gilligan from the TV show Gilligan's Island. I was able to find all of his costume pieces online, but he really wanted to have a Minnow too. I made him a Minnow that he could wear while he trick-or-treated. It was a huge hit and he still enjoys playing with it at home.

  1. I created the boat out of a cardboard box. Then I covered it with white duct tape, slightly overlapping the strips of tape.
  2. I used scrapbooking letters to write SS Minnow on both sides, near the bow of the boat.
  3. I added yarn straps that criss cross in the back to allow the boat to hang over his shoulders.
  4. Have fun trick-or-treating!!
