Black cardboard (enough to cover the area of your waist) Black tape Foam Trench coat Scissors Building the gimmick: Step 1. Cut the legs off of the pants right above the crotch. The pants should now form a tube. Step 2. Bend the aluminum bar around your waist. Remove the bar from your waist and tape it where it overlapped forming a ring in the shape of your waist. Step 3. Place the aluminum ring on the black cardboard. Trace the outline on the cardboard. Step 4. Cut the shape from the cardboard. Trim any edges that overlapping. Step 5. Cut two blocks of foam from the sheet of foam. The blocks should be approximately 3"x2"x1" Step 6. Tape the blocks to the underside of the cardboard cutout.
