For Halloween, K was a…

This is not just any ole’ 8 Ball, not just any ole’ Magic 8 Ball, but one that combines low-tech paper mache with high tech!  We had an iPad attached to her costume which played a randomized slideshow of the Magic 8 Ball answers. I created a digital “Magic 8 Ball” template in Photoshop and K and I populated it with about 19 different fun or funny phrases that we came up with (including the obligatory YES, NO, MAYBE, and ASK AGAIN LATER).  Here are some of my favorites…

It was definitely a very unique costume!  I especially loved the basic, low tech look with the high tech element of surprise.  There was a lot of interest in it at the school Halloween Carnival. 🙂

We also had a lot of fun testing it out (I think I literally lost my voice from laughing so hard), and apparently it’s a TRUE Magic 8 Ball!  Here’s what we learned when I asked it a bunch of questions…

Q: Do I need to take a shower?     A: I DOUBT IT

Q: Does K like mushrooms?     A: NO

Q: Is God Real?     A: YES

Wow… Magical… 😉

  1. I love it! To be honest, I was like, why does K want to be an 8 ball for Halloween?? Why the sudden interest in pool??? Is my niece on track to be the next black widow??But now that I know she was actually a low-tech-paper-mâché-with-high-tech-iPad-magic-8-ball-and-customized-hilarious-responses, that makes much more sense! Very cool design and implementation!
