MAKE contributing illustrator Tim Lillis sent me pics of his friend George Schnakenberg‘s Banksy painting costume, and I’m totally having costume envy over here. Hands down my favorite getup from this Halloween. Here’s a comparison pic of George’s costume versus the original Banksy “Flower Thrower” painting:

He did an awesome job of painting his clothes to capture the shadows in the original stencil, and getting the flowers just right:

Add a little white face paint, and he’s good to go! Check out George’s Flickr stream for pics of his costume on the dancefloor, eating a sandwich, and hanging out with Raggedy Anne.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    What an incredible interpretation! I first became enamored of Banksy after Hurricane Katrina when he came to New Orleans to leave several inspiring works on our damaged streets. I was touched and impressed!

    Brilliant and love that you’re playing with the whole Banksy anonymity thing.
    The guy is a genius and definitely getting all the right attention. Maybe I will go as a girl Banksy to the next party :)
