Purim is a Jewish holiday that involves costumes, at least for younger kids, and this year I had a great time making m youngest a rubik's cube costume that actually turns, as opposed to a static cube, as well as a fun piece of cake pinata costume for my daughter. On Purim afternoon as we headed to a friend's home for a huge and festive Purim meal I was blessed with amazing lighting which enabled me to take some nice photos of the costumes in a historic alley just above our home. My only regret is that the beard and mustache that my some wore with this costume the day before has disappeared.....so bit it, just do keep in mind that some fun facial hair looks great with this costume, as does round glasses and even a crazy Einstein-like wig. I also saw a clever rubik's cube costume in which the girl was dressed in a traditional Hungarian style dress with a rubik's cube on her head......here in Israel it is a called a "Hungarian cube" so everyone gets the costume, and it was quite good! In the USA I highly doubt that people know where Mr. Rubik was from, so that would be an educational costume!
This rubik's cube costume was a six or seven hour endeavor, but the results speak for themselves, and afterwards the costume can become a giant rubik's cube to hang in a child's room (with the addition of a bottom panel, or not.....) If cutting a bunch of squares all the same size doesn't phase you, this might be up your alley! Lets get started.
